looks cool indeed! but don't shoot it like that...probably catch fire after a couple dozen rounds! lol I was letting a class of shooters shoot my 91/30 and it got so dang hot some girl almost dropped it. Only about 25 rounds in about 10 minutes did that. It was fun showing what my rifle did compared to a buddy with his .223. Sure he had semi auto, and 30 rd mags to pop off..but my 54r rounds severely disrupted the can we shot at! lol

*gonna go watch enemy at the gates again tonight* *looking for big, ugly, dirty brown tarp to wrap around me like a cape so I can be Vassily at the train station staring down the major..*

^^^^
How would the burlap catch fire before the wood does or begins to scoch? Are you only stating this in regards to the burlap touching the receiver?

And to spiggy, you should try spray painting the outside of the burlap to get a simple camo effect or dye the burlap using regualr clothing dye from any grocery store.

burlap is highly flammable... but its not going to spontaneously combust
as long as you keep it away from sparks or flames (muzzle) its going to be ok.
for added insurance you can spray on some flame retardant agent they use for making ghillies.

regarding coloring the burlap, i like the natural look but i may scrunch up a couple strips and throw them into a pot of coffee to darken and sorta get a camo look.

The burlap-wrap looks cool, though it is not historically accurate (regardless of what you saw in Enemy at the Gates). Soviet snipers did not do this.

Sure, it cost me about 10 bucks in supplies, and all can be found at walmart.

Just used some sand paper to remove the old finish. Started with 220 grain, and worked my way up to 400 or so grain paper. Once everything was smoothed out, just wipe the stock down to remove all the dust.
Little tin of Minwax polyshades one step:
http://www.minwax.com/products/one_s...polyshades.cfm
I think I used dark red mahogany as that's the color I was going for.
Apply a thin coat with a paint brush evenly. I let it dry overnight. Next day when I got home from work, I would rub it down with 0000 fine steel wool, wipe off any dust, and apply another coat. Repeat until color desired appears. I want to say that was 4 coats, so about a weeks worth of patience.
It's really not hard at all, just time consuming. And make sure you mask off the little bits of steel/blue.

I'm probably going to get 2 91/30s and an M44.
Then I'm gonna mod the hell out of one of the 91/30s.

Might be done now. I may or may not toss in a huber trigger.






Simmons 2-6x pistol scope, cheapie bi-pod, and an S&K optics mount (weaver). It's very nicely built. I had a choice of waiting 4 months or so for the Darrell's mount, or buy this one immediately. I went with the instant gratification. Here's hoping it hits anything from 200 yards.

^That appears to be the best rifling I've seen in a Mosin recently.

I just purchased my first Mosin (an M38) the other day, so once my 10 days are up, I'll post some pictures.
I'm thinking of stocking up on Mosins now, especially because a local dealer sells them for $100 or less, and carries almost every kind of Nagant ever made.

Heres a quick picture of my safe. There are a few other rifles around the house since I could fit all the long one in.

Here are my Mosins, sorry the pictures aren't that great -- I will remedy that one of these days!



M38 and M91/59



Finn M39



Hungarian M44 with eBay bent Bolt, Darrell scout mount and NCStar scope, and Romanian M44



Top is a hex-receiver M91/30, middle is a round receiver M91/30, bottom is a homemade sniper, a round receiver M91/30, an eBay bent bolt, a repro PU mount, and an NCStar scope. I plan to upgrade to one of the nicer, more authentic-looking repro scopes at some point.

And I may refinish a stock or two!

My Big 5 1943 91/30 Mosin Nagant and a M38 I bought off a fellow Calgunner



I got a curved sniper bolt from Jim the Boltman and a mojosight on the 91/30. Still need to go to the range and test it out!

Yea, when I got my 91/30 almost two years ago at Big 5 I made sure to inspect and bring home the rifle I wanted. Only had to clean up the cosmoline, the bore and rifling was in good condition. I want to refinish mine, but I never done it before and don't want to screw up.

And Jim the boltman did a great job with the curved bolt. I highly recommend his business
