Numrich is out of stock on bolt assemblies for that rifle right now but I'm sure they'll get more in before too long. However a new bolt will cost around $65 so I'm not sure it'll be worth it to you to replace it if that is what it needs. If the rest of the rifle is in good shape then it might be worth it since the price on Mosins has been steadily going up.

This is how the Russian's would have outfitted the Mosin today...

Have no idea how this will shoot with the bipod, but having a lot of fun with this one. Have another I'm keeping stock.

nice mosins

i like how we are have the historical ones and the modified ones so we can see a variance in these rifles.

@ sks try buymilsurp.com i believe they sell bolts and other parts you may need to get that rifle going

im very happy with the turnout of people posting, im hoping to see more variety and more mosins!

Here's my 1942 Izzy with a Brasstacker see-through scout mount and an NcStar 2-7 pistol scope.



I can't seem to get the damn scope zeroed and will probably have to shell out the cash for a better one in the future. In the meantime, the mount is solid and being see-through i can use the iron sights, which I'm pretty accurate with at this point.

the illuminated one works for me, but remember its fixed parallax and thus at different viewing angels the zero will have moved

Duzell,

The barrel was sanded and polished on a wool wheel. I just keep it oiled. Been that way for 2 years and no rust.

I spent A LOT of time tweaking that rifle. I bedded the stock, added pillar beds, little upward pressure on the barrel like the Finns did and Timney trigger at 1.5 lbs. It was a fun project and is one of my favorite rifles to shoot. It's not like my .308 target rifle or anything but it often shoots sub 1" 5 round groups at 100 and has been just over 1 MOA out to 400 yards. Did that only once and on a bad day. I'm hoping to improve on that next time.

M38 which I bought a few years ago - works fine with reduced load. They had two, this had the best trigger and the barrel was bearing properly on the end of the stock. Counterbored, like many overhauls.



Izhevsk one which I bought many years ago from someone at the club who had never used it much. Has a Tokarev 'scope, which someone pointed out fairly recently.
