alright guys, I think the OP has been sufficiently chastised about the quality of worksmanship on mosins. in some respects it just may be one of the better rifles considering the 10s of millions that were made and the 50+ year service life. also I would hardly call them a 2x4 that shoots bullets, though they are very heavy compared to most the actual ergonomics of the rifle are not poor at all and the stock design was very well thought out as I have noticed a huge difference in the way felt recoil is perceived between a military stock and thumbhole sporter stock with the military stock being much milder with less upward motion despite the metal buttplate.
