Default Got myself a new toy, have a question

Alright, I just got a 1943 Mosin Nagant M91/30. It's very nice, and I've got 100 rounds of Russian surplus ammo that I'll be getting to shoot Friday (though probably not all of it) and I'm super excited. It may not exactly be a prized collector's piece, but I'm very happy. It already holds a great deal of sentimental/historical value for me. Ever since I was a child, I've been fascinated by Russia and the Soviet Union. I was able to study the language, politics, culture, and history in college. And with my grandfather being a veteran, WWII has always been an area of history I love. A perfect combination for me!

I have a question though

When I disassembled and reassembled it to clean the cosmoline, I had a lot of trouble getting the stock bands off and on the rifle. Even put a scratch in the wood

Does anyone have any tips for getting these on and off? I'd appreciate any suggestions

Thanks for your help

Also, because I'm just so happy, here's a couple pics

Why do you feel it necessary to list your guns?

Some more info for you here: Collecting and Shooting the Mosin-Nagant 1891/30 - HISTORY

The barrel bands are not removed in ordinary day to day maint. They are tighter than all get out.

If you shoot 100 rounds with that, stop by the drugstore and get the BIG bottle of Ibuprofen on the way home. You will want it the next day. Slip on recoil pad or THICK jacket welcome.

If your rifle has been in storage, also suggest you use a drill and a .50 cal brush and solvent, scrub the daylights out of the CHAMBER before heading for the range. Read the article on "sticky bolt syndrome"
