Looks great! The only Mosin I have is a SAKO M39. Stock was trash but I was lucky enough to find an unissued Finnish stock for it.

I found it on ebay, Mosin Nagant 91/30, Muzzle Brake Compensator MNB-1
$80.00

This thing goes on and off just like a bayonet, works fine, 100% feed back.

When I looked into those -- I didn't like the "off E-Z" part

After about 3 hours total - as clean as this was when I got it -- not counting the sawdust from the great range box project --- I'd guess about 2 table spoons of cosmo leached out ?



Then a few Tilex W/ bleach squirts & hot water rinse's --



I mite give it a real lite & quick chemical strip ? - I dont like using harsh stuff on the wood

I'm very pleased to see -- except for the factory re-build repair of the first 4" of the nose ---- "No Cracks"

But theres no initials carving - in fact no cartouche's of any kind ?

This time I'll try Not to sand out all the dings and dents

Sooooooooooooooooooooooo when they were initially sited with them on or extended -- "one part" ( worth repeating -- "One Part" ) of the barrels harmonics were affected --

It still amazes me how the idea of "Re-Sighting" - just is beyond comprehension to some

If you did your homework - you'll know that trying ye-old corking of the barrel at different spots was they're ideas of "dampening" - some vibrations
Ok, I respect your opinions but that is what they are opinions and they are clearly based on a preference for keeping the gun in a close to pristine condition. Now, I can respect that but we're advising a guy on what is more of a gun remanufacturing than a restoration / preservation. Once you do anything beyond routine maintenance and light cleaning your we'll beyond a piece that is intact as far as collecting goes. Furthermore, there is no need to be condicending to others who's thoughts you differ with.

If you did your homework, you will find out the following. 1st, the Russian's were and still are a utilitarian type of people. So almost every thing they do is based on "make it work" mind set. They would have expected the grunt on the front to learn his rifle and adapt. 2nd, this is a gun from WWII! A war that began with the Russians in many ways behind the bell curve in technology. They were trying to make good tanks, ships and planes small arms were an afterthought. If you doubt that, I'll refer you to the AK47, where the 47 is the year the design was completed, right at the tail end of the war. 3rd, The sniper program was "if the guy shoots good enough give a little better training and a scope for the gun and send him out". They did not teach gun accurizing, shoot solutions or the like. Hell, most Russian snipers worked alone most of the time. 4th, 91/30's were designed for the colder climate in Russia. Their barrels are relatively thin steel and as a result heat up quickly. So, shimming them with cork for vibration is a bad idea because the barrels are surrounded by the stock. This means the cork will only act as an insulator keeping the heat in. Lastly, repositioning the front sight is an easy fix but it dose not allow for the barrel heating up with repeated firing and it causes you to potentially spend a great deal of time and ammo finding the sweet spot.

If your going for pristine clean it and store it. If your accuracy tuning it do what you can afford. I was just offering suggestions you can do easily and cheaply that are the least invasive to your gun.
