Just bought 2 mosin nagants today from big 5 , an M44 and a M91/30 $89.99 each. I think im going to refinish the 91/30 stock , its a weird color , and its like flaking off. Both dated 1944 , I think both Isheveks. The bores are good. All numbers match on the m44 , the 91/30 bolt has been electro penciled to match which sucks , but its still cool. I have a 98k , a 1903 , and a No5Mk1 , I figured I need a little russian now. Next is No4Mk1. Ill post in "11" days when I get them. Im happy with them , now to find some ammo. Any suggesstions?

gun shows for ammo, or handload due to surplus is drying up.

They are not CA friendly, take your business elsewhere. JG has the Bulgarian 300 round can for $49.00 IIRC.

How much does JG and AIM usually charge for shipping on say just one can?

There both pretty even in price. What grain do you reccomend , I was thinking heavy, 183gr. Maybe a mix of both , see what they both like to eat.

Carbines seem to like the heavyer stuff, rifles like the lighter, in my experiance.

Hey SLYoteBoy sounds like a nice coupl'a Mosins you got there, betcha can't buy just two! My advice, don't buy any more, don't buy a38, a 44, a '59,
a '91, don't buy a 39, especially a SkY, or a 27, a 28, 28/30, just don't!!

I've heard that the rearsenaled coating of protective flaking shellac on the stock can be removed by gently rubbing a cloth with denatured alcohol on it, you might give that a try before anything else.

If you're ever in South Bay or West LA area and want to meet up sometime Ican give you a packet each of various milsurp ammo Bulgarian, Albanian, Russian, etc. you can try to see which your "Moseens" like.

Denatured alcohol will work, acetone gets better results

Soaking the stock in raw linseed oil and let it settle, then covering it in 1 part beeswax, 1 part boiled linseed oil, 1 part turpentine gains results of bringing out the burling and rippling in the wood.

Thanks pogo , and spig for the tips. I was thinking also , since the bolt is mismatched , could it be an ex sniper? I looked on the outside for the welded overholes , didnt think about looking on the inside of the receiver. Hmmm :43:

bolts are often mismatched.

:D never bet on a stamp match weapon when it comes to the russians. Tons of stuff is EPed postwar rearsenal. Sometimes they just got lazy

-Then to consider second hand swaps; what ever happens to the parts when they get into the states through importers, retailers, other purchasers; and especially people like me who assemble 91/30s out of parts they buy off gunbroker

True. When you go thru gun broker , and peice them together , all you have to FFL is the receiver? barrel etc can be sent to your door?

trust me on this one; unless you have sufficient hardware (short of a complete machine shop). You don't want to remove that barrel

Reciever is the FFL part; as is with other guns

If you're in SoCal, you might be able to talk Ajax22 out of a reciever. He might have a spare
