Ild recommend Rytons if your looking for a mosin, Russia wont be making any more of them and although millions were made one wonders how long the current supply of rifles will last, and the price is quite affordable and range of models and differences huge.
Ive rattled before on this but have a look at www.7.62x54r.net
I would make sure you really want rid if your TT also before seeing it off, ive reretted shedding a few items in my collection before.
Regards to weapons seeing action, thats part of the mystique of these things. Ild like to think that none of my items caused a death, but that would be very nieve.
