I wrote this for the other forum, I hope they do not mind me sharing the info over here.

...................................................................................................

Mosin Nagant hints and tips.
http://russian-mosin-nagant.com


Here are a couple of links that cover a couple of important and common issues with these rifles.

Sticky bolt problem.
http://russian-mosin-nagant.com/mambo/i ... &Itemid=59

Headspace information
http://russian-mosin-nagant.com/mambo/i ... &Itemid=59

(The above site is down while the site is being redone, if you have any questions about the procedures, PM me.
...................................................................................................................................................
All about the MN family of rifles
http://www.7.62x54R.net

Another link with info:
http://www.mosinnagant.net/USSR/mosin_n ... rkings.asp

A couple of Youtube videos that show taking the bolt apart and putting it back together. The bolts are all basically the same so this will work with all Russian MN rifles.

IMPORTANT The measurement he is checking is the firing pin protusion, NOT the headspace!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VE2QCCc6bz4

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PBQ9EVla ... re=related

Something to think about safety issues on the MN Rifles

REMEMBER: The Mosin-Nagant HAS NO SAFETY GAS RELEASE PORTS.

Unlike the Mauser K98, Springfield 1903, or Swiss K31, which all have safety ports for escaped gas from improper headpsace to run off in a "safe" direction, gas escaped from poorly headspaced Nagants have only one direction in which to go - your face.

The Czar had plenty of conscripts and had no qualms about this.

The firing pin has been known in rare instances to come out of the rifle into the shooters face. Very rare, but do you want to take a chance with your eyes?

http://www.7.62x54r.net/ is another great resource - lots of info, photos, history, etc. The fellow who runs the site is a member of gunboards.com (the Collector's forum on that site is probably the forum for all things Mosin Nagant). Most of what I know about Mosins came from these two sites.

Cheers,

~ Greg ~

Hey ptrthgr8, nice album of toys you have there! I'm humbled by your collection. ;-)
I also wanted to tell you that the thing that impressed me the most (out of all those great guns!) was that stock on your 42SA Garand. That's a thing of beauty. :mrgreen:

It is, without a doubt, one of the most gorgeous pieces of lumber I've seen on any rifle to date. Dean at DGR did me right by this one. :)

I'll post a seperate thread with a few of the faves in my collection - that Garand will definitely be in there. :)

Cheers,

That would be great! As far as the Garand goes I have to agree with you. I'm no expert but it's gorgeous!
Especially the stock, but the rest is incredible too. Dean did wonders for you! You're a lucky man to have something so beautiful. ;-)

Thanks, I've been seeing the Nagant rifle & revolvers for sale at the gun shows for under $100.00.
It might make a nice addition to the collection.

Keep in mind risteen that the Nagant revolver isn't the same guy who designed the Mosin Nagant rifles.
The Nagant revolver was designed by the cousin (IIRC) of the Nagant rifle designer.
And the Mosin Nagant is actually two differnt designers. Hence "Mosin" "Nagant".

Risteen ..... DO IT! :mrgreen:
They are without a doubt the most cheap fun you can have with a gun! A .22 is fine, and is cheaper to shoot, but it ain't a 3 line rifle, and it won't make fireballs! :twisted:

I am still trying to find a rear site that fits the one off rear site base that I have.

I love my rifle, but sometimes I curse getting an 1895 Chatelherault. They only made that site base for one year.
