So about a year ago i got it and it was butchered someone cut the stock and spray painted the stock camo and removed the bayonet but I only paid $60 for it.

I stated by getting a new stock a laminate one for $50 then I used an extra sling I had and I used an extra cleaning rod I had and cut it down and machined it down and threaded it. But I had a super hard time finding the correct bayonet but last week I orders one for $25 and it is now fully restored. The down side is none of the numbers match but for $135 total I think I did alright.

It's lovely. Be proud of the job you did. You made a silk purse out of a sow's ear.

One of the best looking Mosins I've seen I a good while.

Thanks everyone. It's been a challenge at times but the end result was very rewarding. I went out and shot it today and I defiantly think the bayonet improved accuracy it was all over the place before I put it on and now I'm hitting an 8" steel plate at 150 yards every shot.

That makes a lot of sense, they were sighted in with bayonets attached. Most 91/30s have to be sighted in for the same reason.
