Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Is there much of a market for m44's and 91/30's, is the market pretty much saturated?

Keiths,
I think the market for these fine rifles has slowed due to the decrease of available cheap surplus ammo. Of course the price also has increased. the day of the $39 dollar mosins is over. Too bad, these are fine rifles.

You can sell m44s for $175 all day long, now at $300 not too many takers. It seems most try to get $200 on common 91-30s at gun shows. And these have the huge billboard import mark. Not to many takers, but come down to $150 and you will sell off all you got. The ones lacking bill board import marks and have the mark on the barrel or very small on the receiver, with a sling and bayonet, or the original garbage kit still complete will sell for $200-225. And M91s still command a slightly higher price if the cleaning rod is present. Most of the newer crowd like the Tula stars or longer M91s with Imperial markings. The exsnipers and MO marked 91-30s also sell. But it is hard to figure a former $79 Mosin is up to around $200 at the shows. Prices are so high that none of the newer collectors are buying too much. So for my 2 cents, its that the prices are just too crazy high in the current market. Most just keep the cash in the pocket.

Yeah it really hurts since ammo dried up. I'm still finding spam cans around $100 locally but I have to search for them
