I used to deer hunt with mine on days that were rainy and foggy and the old scopes would fog up. It was easy to carry and as I recall not bad accuracy.

That's fine looking yuccales.

Yes, I still have the 17. I love it...great shooting and reliable. But I would trade it back for the Model 19 in a heart beat if I could.

I paid $259 for my first one, a "forced matching number" re-arsenaled 91/30, Ishvesk round receiver. Nothing special, it needed the front sight adjusted as it shot about 1 foot high and 6 inches right at 100yds without the bayonet on... But if you compensated for that, it was a great shooter. Thats the one I sold. Traded it in for $175 towards my P238 sig Nitron.

I bought a M44 in nice shape with a trigger job from a retired state cop for $275 with about 80 rounds of brown bear ammo, that one is a sweet shooter. round receiver Ishvesk matching number rifle.

The last one I bought is a 1935 Ishvesk hex receiver, with a laminate stock- truly matching number rifle and the serial number is 407, which I am told doesn't matter as Russia used random serial number scheme so no one knew how many rifles they produced. I paid $399 for that one at cabelas, and was my most recent purchase. Even though it was pricey, it was the first hex I had seen in probably a year, and wasn't in bad shape. doesn't look used, probably was from a crate that was in long term storage. Most in the same batch at cabelas were pretty rusty and pitted. The one I got only has one blemish on the receiver, and a good bore. I think I did well, and it looks nice.


I wish I kept the first one just because I had done a few things- added a rail in place of the rear sight base, had a 2-7x scope, added a front rail mount on the barrel, and a bi-pod so I had it dialed in pretty well with the scope. It sucked to bench rest shoot though.

A Mosin is definitely in the top 3 bolt rifles. I bought a Tula in '02 i paid $150 for it and a hex 91/30 for $99. I traded the Hex in for a lever action a few years back. That was a regret. I like that show life below zero. A lady eskimo uses one to hunt caribou and it has plenty of power to take em down.

Model 54 perhaps? I have a model 54 I bought used several years back. It is a model 94 winchester with more simple barrel band and wood. The finish isn't quite as good either, but it shoots great! Ironically, I bought mine in NH from a dealer that had two Mossberg 500 shotguns, 20 and 12 gauges, both with scalloped design bolts also sold by sears. I bought all three of them. I figured out the two mossbergs were also sold by sears in the 70's, and maybe all three guns came from the same persons collection. No way of telling though.

I have a soft spot for them. to me, they are a beautiful rifle, and I love the history of them. I put a russian stock on my SKS as well, to get a similar profile stock

My regret was selling a Smith and Wesson 422. At the time, I needed money to buy a Smith and Wesson SW40VE, which I still have and will never part with.

Yes, its a Sigma. Still has a trigger that's strong but not gritty and I'm keeping it.

When we went full time in the RV, I left all of my long guns with my son in law and grandson...also my Browning Nomad .22. I sold some of my pistols and I wish I had kept the Beretta 92FS, Desert Storm 9mm and my .45 Colt Defender.

As am I. I have a 92FS which is another I will never sell. If I ever find a cheetah in .380 ACP I want to buy one of those too- baby 92 basically

A Marlin 1895SS in 45-70, a Ruger Super Redhawk 44 mag, a Winchester Model 70 Classic Stainless 300 win mag. Also a Marlin 336CS 35 Remington that my ex-wife took when we split up. That was one beautiful little rifle that had gorgeous walnut for a factory rifle.
