I had my fun with these when they were cheap, and surplus ammo was in good supply. There was this "Dime Store" in Fayetteville NC and can't remember the name, but, they sold surplus rifles, and one of these could be bought for $69, they'd put 3 greasy boxes up on the counter and I could pick thru them, and found one that looked refurbished or new! They also had Mosins for $49. I Lost interest at some point and sold them, really wish I hadn't, but them's the breaks.

Last attempt to pick one of these up it was a brand spanking new No.4 Mk.2, one of the contract rifles built for Ireland in 1955 I think, complete with a bayonet #'d to the rifle, but, because of the strife going on they were warehoused and never delivered is the story, and $700 was the price...
If you want a shooter for the least money then the MK2s are the best deal out there. They have no real collector value & they are for the most part unused. I had several when they were $400, just have light wood instead of that oil soaked ww2 wood we all love...
