Hey guys,

I know when you assemble a mosin bolt back together and adjust the firing pin, you line up the rear indention with the lines, but when you cock the bolt and put it into the gun are the lines supposed to still line up?

Mine line up when the bolt handle is up and the gun is uncocked, but when i cock it they dont line up anymore.

Since the part of the pin that fits into the square hole is squared-off, there are only two possible orientations of the line. They are either in the same direction or 90 degrees apart. Now, these parts are machined with huge tolerances, so if you see a couple of degrees difference between cocked and not cocked, I think you're seeing these tolerances.



Shoot it. Let us know.
