For starters I'd work on how to properly shoulder your rifle. Believe it or not this is easy to do wrong, and is usually the most common reason for discomfort. That being said, shooting any high powered gun long enough is going to hurt. To that extent you get a Limbsaver, which is a gel pad slip on. I've also seen a few other items, but this is easy because it doesn't involve modifying the rifle.

Check out tikebitesupply.com (davids collectibles). They sell a nice hard rubber mosin butt pad. It adds about an inch of LOP which softens the thump quite a bit. I have one on my M44.

The mosin buttstocks are rather short compared to American buttstocks. If you tried buttpad I bet youd like it, but it's all personal preference.

I would suggest to find a caliber that you can shoot comfortably; once you start flinching from the recoil its hard to correct.

Hello,

You might check this. Hard rubber, this is what I use. It provides a good fit, a poor fit being the number one cause of felt recoil as shotgunners know.

Maybe a .22 would be a good suggestion?

After the recoil pad, try these:

#1. Ditch the heavy ball and shoot light ball.

#2. Work up a handload with a 125-gr bullet intended for 7.62X39 over a starting load of a fast powder like IMR 4895.

I'll 2nd the Past recoil pad. It really cuts down the recoil. It is a pad that you wear, you do not need one for each rifle.

I use limbsaver slip on pad for my mosins. I think i use the medium size, but I need to double check. My friends had the hard rubber one you find everywhere and they like my limbsaver so much they each got one.

Try shooting it more often. First time I shot one I only put 25rd through it and my shoulder was sore for 4-5 days, second time I put 60rd through it (different gun, also M91/30) and I was only sore for 3 days. Haven't had another range trip since then but I'd guess it gets better.

Call me a wimp, sold both my Mosins, Finnish M39 and Russian M91/59 to Calgunners...! But I love my Enfield no.1 mk4 though....

I think a PAST recoil pad will help, keeps the gun looking original and takes the 18lb Mosin recoil off your shoulders. Have one when I shot my Mosins. Now I shoot ARs, 3lb recoil... Woohooo....!

Less recoil? I'm at a loss for the concept. Reload your own rounds with lighter charges, use these (I've never tried it, can't vouch for safety) http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/cb/cb.aspx?a=650814 or for really light/no recoil... http://www.sportsmansguide.com/net/c....aspx?a=587989

there is no way to reduce the recoil on the M44 Mosin unless you put a muzzlebreak/comp. The M44 is just a beast!

I might have a few rounds of 7.62x54 62 grain training ammo left. These are fun rounds that I cronied at over 3900fps! They have almost no recoil. Try to find some. Or, reload and develop your own load.

You obviously don't know what you're talking about. There are plenty of ways to reduce recoil for ANY GUN. Brakes are only one way. Fitting the stock to the shooter is another. Changing the ammo is an obvious one. Modifying the sock would be a more complex and expensive way.

Shot a friends Mosin for the first time and let me tell you...that thing is BEAST!!! But is freaking AWESOME!!!!
The recoil was ok, but you do feel it when you pull that trigger...

Huh? Do you bruise easy or are you just not shouldering the rifles correctly? I don't think I've ever bruised from a day at the range. Yea, I've spent the day shooting Mosins and Mausers before but, I've alternated them with 50BMGs, 300WMs, 7.5x55, 30-06s, .308s and shotguns. Maybe the lower recoil of the 50s keeps me from bruising?

You're holding it wrong. Hold it right and you'll shoot as well as any of the millions of kids who have shouldered a Mosin Nagant during the rifle's 100+ year history.

Watch the WW2 US Army rifle training videos and do what they say (Garand is in those films, but the techniques are the same). I'm an engineer who has the muscular bulk of a wet pile of toilet paper, and I have no problems shooting a rifle like the M44 with no padding.

The hardest thumping rifle I ever shot was when I was working up loads for a 5-lb deer rifle chambered in 35 Whelen with no recoil pad. First time my arm actually went numb from firing a rifle. I told my buddy (who owns the gun) that maybe he should get a different rifle. He agreed.

I guess I bruise easily, I always bruise up from my izzy 91/30 and my yugo
m48. Then again I am holding it right but I do shoot alot of rounds

May that's it. I usually get bored after 150-200 rounds of little stuff and go back to shooting the 50s.
