POA Russian volunteers fight for the Germans against the Soviets.
Very blurry photo, but I think his rifle has the mod like yours. Note the cleaning rod is removed/missing and lugs like a German bayo lug right above the hole.

Grabbed from here, http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic. ... 8&start=15
there a few other cool photos of POA with PPSH41s and a wheeled Maxim MG

Looks like an already existing Mauser model, with a normal Mauser style bayonet lug. I have seen some examples where Mosins were outfitted with this style Mauser bayonet lug to accept the Ersatz style bayonets. Those are hard to find too!

If you'd like to read up more on the Mauser bayonet conversions to Mosins, check this link for the what appears to be "easiest" conversion to accept an Ersatz style bayonet. Then check out John Sheehan's article. He had some good and valuable input on the bayonet modification sleeve on my rifle as well.

Interesting, to me it looks like the same rifle.

I've noticed this thread hasn't had any activity for a while. Let's add some new info to it.

Are these rifles still readily available? Is the ammo still as cheap as it has historically been? How hard is it to find a "nicest of the bunch"?

The only rifle I own is a 10/22 so I'm thinking a Mosin might be a great place to start my collection of larger caliber rifles. Sounds like the price and availability are great.

Looks like this comment fell on deaf ears.

The answer is no.

Mosins are not as readily available as they used to be. They once were $99 guns that came with bayonet and accessories at Big5. 440 round tins of ammo were super cheap. Like $80 cheap.

Last time I saw Mosins in stock they were around the $250 range + shipping + transfer + tax.

Last time Spam cans were available at SG ammo they were going for 150 each.

HA. I used to wait for Big 5 sales and walked in with my inspection kit, cleaned the bores and did a full assessment on each gun. Walked out the door with them all 98% or better with some nice hexes and several just about new 44s all with kit for $72 and $84 respectively. You can't touch a beat up shooter grade with a frosted bore for $250 now
