View Full Version : Mosin Trigger – Thoughts?

The pin serves as a roller bearing.

The design cannot be patented as the Finns were doing something very similar back in '39.

What do you think? I have one set up on my personal Mosin and it feels like the second stage of a two-stage K98's pull, but smoother.

Have you compared it to the pull of a the Finnish M39? It looks very similar for sure, but if you can replicate performance then you might have a winner.
I was able to source an M39 trigger for my scout rifle Mosin for $40 shipped from Gunbroker, and that included the trigger spring (which if I recall correctly is a slightly different profile vs the Russian Mosin). Your price point of $50 for the trigger alone might be slightly high if trying to compete against surplus M39 triggers...

It is like the second stage of an M39, and the trigger pull is shorter.

I had an M39 trigger on my PU, but I wasn't happy with it. I was thinking about trying yours, but at $50, I will try to get the M39 right first.

$50 is the starting point. I was advised to not undersell myself.

This is basically an M39 trigger without the two-stage pull.

If you'd like to talk to me about what's going on with your M39 trigger, I'll be more than happy to help out. I've done those two-stage triggers as well and know what the effects of the different pin locations and different sear bends do.

I would guess you're releasing on the first stage. Is this right or wrong?

I understand, I just have to do the Cost/Benefit analysis for myself. I'm sure it's worth it, just not for me, at this time.
Thanks for the offer of help, I'll probably contact you when I get back into the rifle this summer.
