I was in a military surplus/gun store the other day and saw a gun that looked familiar, but different. I picked it up and talked to the owner. He said it was an American made Mosin–Nagant. It was much cleaner looking than any I had ever seen. The action was very smooth and all the metal work as well as the stock had a much more finished look to it. The guy seemed to be a trader and I have some stuff he might be interested in. I am going back. This is a cool place just North of Memphis that has a WW2 museum in this guys yard. He has a helicopter in the side yard!
