so i really really really want a nagant. i've noticed the prices seem to be climbing and i want to pick up one or two or three before they stay high like SKSs and so on.
my question is where to buy? i have looked at gunbroker and they don't seem to be going for less than $200, which is no problem but i can't inspect it beforehand which makes me leary.
a couple big 5's around me have them in stock and it would be about the same price after tax, plus i get to look at it and get sticky with cosmolene!
are there any other good places to look? most online places like AIM are out of stock, and like i said... i want one.
am i making too big a deal out of inspecting it so i don't get junk? i'm no expert but have read up no what to look for. i mostly want this for a cheap and fun way to practice my shooting fundamentals and to own a piece of history. i'm not planning on sporterizing this in way.
