The barrel was probably like a 30 year old sewer pipe long before the other guy got the rifle. Mosins were issued to illiterate peasant conscripts who didn't care if the thing shot well or not,
Kind of a shame to burst a bubble, but many MNs are un-issued. Pretty no, corroded out, no as well.

I had one that had to have come in from Spain before the wall went down (forget the arms dealer, but he was famous) - upshot was it had a very clean rifling. Either not shot or not shot much.

Of course the Spanish and International Patriots who used them were not illiterate Russian peasants
