I want to point out for safety...
The Mosin Nagant has a very rudimentary safety mechanism. It's operated by pulling the cocking knob and rotating it. This IS THE ONLY safe means of transporting the rifle with a round chambered, and generally is a method considered not to be trusted unquestionably.

As I said before, it is NOT safe to "decock" this rifle with a round chambered.

Chamber empty, or safety engaged, period. Personally, I love my old ruskie, a 1938 Tula, but I transport it with an empty chamber.

The actual trigger itself is likely fine, but there is nothing wrong with replacing it.

Without having mine in front of me (I left it with my mom), I can't tell you if that would be a big deal or not. If it has visible wear though, not a bad idea to scrap it and replace it.

So, according to all that was said. These first two links to parts should do it, then I just wante the third one because the trigger IS sloppy.

Trigger spring bolt stop.

Cocking Knob.

Trigger and reset spring.

Because I can't stop thinking about my malfunctioning rifle...I keep playing with it...

So one last question....When reassembling the bolt, once I slide the bolt guide rod onto the block on the cocking knob...should there be alot of wiggle room?

Because there is..I can slide it around and make it so it barely sticks out...

As you can see in the second photo, there is NO part of the block showing.
