You really were looking for an "affordable" rifle! The Mosin-Nagant is a great rifle and dirt cheap - easy on the wallet up front with the rifle cost and even lighter to shoot thoursands of rounds down the road. I had one for a bit, made it look real nice once I got the cosmolene out of it and refinished the stock... But I decided to get rid of it. I enjoyed every shot out of it - especially shooting into some rocks at night
try that out and enjoy the flame out the end and the sparks on the rocks!
As for competitions go - good luck! It'd be the first Mosin that I've ever seen on the firing line!
