I have never been a big fan of refurbed Mosins. The pretty bluing, flaking shellac and forced matched numbers. I feel that they had so much history scrubed off of them.
I really like the Warhorses that have that BTDT (Been There, Done That) look.
Everytime I come across one I try to buy it, or tread a nice looking refurb of the same make and year for it.
Here are a few that I have in my collection.

I like 'em scuffed, too. I have a Sesty m91 from the 1890's. Some day I'll have to pic it. Great markings. Finned, too.

Nice collection!
Absolutely right and true. I like very much the worn white metal more than perfect bluing.
I would like to change my perfect refurbed M38.

Arsenal refurb are the only ones I have. I have an ex-Dragoon, a '43 Ishvesk, a 43 Tula and 44 Ishvesk PU sniper, and a Finnish M39 B barrel. They were somewhere in the war.

Candyman, I couldn't agree more. All my milsurps are Veterans. I've had unissued and refurbed guns but I never shot them, not wanting to mar them. I sold them off and just have seasoned shooters now. I really like non import marked guns. :thumb:

I look at those pictures with a sense of loss and regret,The writing styles and the way they are made makes me feel like we have lost something along the way.

Lee, you should like this well worn rifle - finally got around to picking up my first Mosin - one of the cracked stock specials from Classic -1944 m39 Valmet.

But man will it shoot - only the hand guard was cracked.ImageImageImageImageImageImage

Mwt, very nice MN 39. :thumb: That was a wise acquisition.. I hear classic is getting down to the bottom on those. When they are gone prices will go through the roof, especially if Pat Burns didn't hold that many back.

It will bring home the venison also. Used the same 180gr Sierra Prohunter I used in my 1916 BSA No 1 Mk3 to take a doe early in the season. Great bullet and accurate.
