[QUOTE=Long_Shot;1912861]I know you guys are gonna scoff at the Mosin-Nagant because its bolt action but I wouldn't hesitate to use it in a long-distance sniper mission against invading hordes of zombies.

I am seriously thinking about getting a Mosin ?? My LGS has them for $109.00

what is the price range on ammo for them ??

$0.17 per round. I can not buy the slugs to reload for that price!

I even break down the 7.62x54 rounds to use the slugs in my Enfield. Cheaper than buying the slugs.

If you do make sure it is a "War-time" stock meaning before 1945. They are the same price its just cooler because its "War-time." I bought a 440 round spam-can at a local gun show for $85 cash. You get a lot of gun for the money just like Hi Points that's why I like them. I got everything here in the picture for under $200.

I can give you a bead on a good smith for the bolt, scope mounts, and scopes.

My LGS has them for $ 199.00 and it comes with the accessories and a 440 rd. can of ammo ?? Is that a decent deal ?? the one I looked at was stamped 1933

$199 for the rifle with all accessories and a 440-round spam can is not out of line. Check the numbers to see if they match. The numbers are in 4 places, the bolt, the receiver, the base plate of the magazine and the butt stock plate. Also check to see if it has been counterbored. Non-matching numbers and a counterbore job are not deal breakers but it is kind of cool to have one where the numbers all match.

If you buy it get ready to clean, clean, clean. The cosmoline they are packed in is everywhere. Also after shooting be sure to clean the bore and bolt. The old surplus ammo is corrosive and so the rifle needs to be cleaned after use.

[QUOTE=eyeman2904;1912748]I think the 4595TS is hard to beat for price and performance. I have the .45 Hi Point pistol which takes the same magazines, which simplifies things. It's in the center of this group:

Is that a Hi point scope on the 4595TS? How do you like it? I'm looking for one but not sure on what to buy for my 995.

I myself have been asking the same question and have hit the internet hard in search of the best answer.
If a pistol caliber fits the bill then HiPoint carbines are hard to beat (if you can find one)
Cheapest out the door would be the mosin nagant, non spam can ammo can be pricey though pushing the long term cost higher than expected.
It has been mentioned before but for a legit battle rifle that is affordable to purchase and feed that's concidered rugged and hi capacity, the Saiga but instead of 223/5.56, get it in 5.45x39!
The gun can be had for around $400 and the ammo is around 12 cents a round.
So the gun is not much more than a decked out hipoint carbine, the ammo is cheap, the capacity is high and it's a real rifle round as opposed to a pistol round

*Read somewhere that Saiga's only accept Saiga mags reliably, so do some research before commiting*
