    AK-47: you can use it to do pushups
    AR-15: you can use it to do sit ups
    Mosin: you can use it to do pull ups

    i love mine, ive had two, a sporterized m44 that wasnt accurate one bit (sold), and my 91/30 thats accurate as hell but no moa machine, i shoot surplus ammo and spray windex through it and then patch it with paper towels and then motor oil...works like a charm for me

    I took out my M-44 yesterday to my works range day. I have a bunch of guys that work with me that's never shot anything larger than a M-4. It was fun to watch, love the giant flame and the BOOM!

    Can you really get one of these for around $200?

    Or less. Check it over the same way you'd check over a 1903, Mauser, etc. Use a barrel erosion gauge, or use a 0.310" or 0.312" bullet. Keep in mind that the Russians didn't use 0.308" bullets.

    The laminate stocked ones usually cost a bit more; I prefer the standard birch stocks.

    You can have a really good one for $150 or less, and sink the rest into, oh, say, sights ;)

    Regards,

    Josh

    IIRC, the silver tip stuff is a bit lighter (weight of the bullet, not the load amount) than other stuff....it's been awhile since I looked into it though

    I've got one can sitting here, and another on order stuck in verifying at Aim. I'm hoping this is a temporary delay in shipments, I'd like one or two more cans and I'll be set for likely as long as I'll own my Nugget.
