Historical Value of VOSTOKs

You mean ... the price will inflate.
As the worth of the US dollar deflates.
Sad to say.

The VOSTOKs being sold to us should be,
for the most part, obsolete and surplussed club rifles.

The only historical significance that could possibly be
associated with then is the end of the cold war.

Unless it could be documented that some Russian Olympic
super shooter trained with one of these entry level target rifles.

Their historical worth is virtually nothing.

But, as accurate rifles for the money.
Well, worth the price.

Go ahead and modify the heck out of them ...
if it makes you happy.

There is no reason to feel guilty about ruining an artifact.
