Heres the thing I paid $440 because it has the pu scope. I thought it was great. Turns out the scope is reproduction. I took it to the range shoots great with iron sights, but no luck with scope. I zeroed everything in and then tried to loosen the calibration screws and nothing worked. All and all I have $100 gun that looks cooler. Any have any knowledge on these things let me know. Thanks
Hope you didnt loosen the screws too much...

Heres a link on sighting in the PU scope: http://mosinnagant.net/sniper%20section/mosin-nagant-sighting.asp

I gots me a 1942 "sniper".....

Thx every1. Finally got it all apart and got every single metal piece cleaned up. Now I just got to do Tue stock. I don't got Amy degreaser right now so I guess it will have to wait. By Tue way, all I ildid was strip the rifle and use hopeys #9 solivent. After cleaning each part with that I rubbed it all down with the hopeys lube. Looks great. Only wiered thing is, when I tool Tue barrel off, I found a little chunk of I think dirt in between Tue barrel and stock. After cleaning the barrel I can now see were the dirt was. It was there for so long it put a little bit of an indentation on the barrel.

Cosmoline would not be hard enough to leave an indentation in the barrel. Might be a small rust spot. Get all the rust off and touch up the barrel with a reblueing pen.

It wasn't cosmoline. It looked like some dirt. It was a good amount. And after cleaning it all out it has that indentation. It must of been there for years.

It may have just been in there for so long that it rubbed the indentation into it instead if pressing it in.

I bought a gallon of purple super clean basically dollar store degreaser stripped everything and let it soak which worked great used a tooth brush on reciever then cleaned with hoppes 9 to remove degreaser then used a coat of rem-oil on top to prevent rusting ill use white lithium grease on bolt before i shoot it
