An arshin is approximately 28 inches, The average length of a Russian soldier's stride.

[QUOTE="jpattersonnh"]

You have to scrub the chamber. Here is the man that is the expert on the Russian Model 1891 through 1959.
How would you recommend scrubbing the chamber and with what

If the problem is shellac buildup then denatured alcohol but remove the action from the stock as it will also remove the shellac from your stock.

Most liekly its just cosmoline that wasnt really cleaned well. A 20ga bore mop soaked in hoppes #9 will remove cosmo infestation.

If it is still sticking its shellac buildup from surplus steel cases. Once you clean it a slower rate of fire and not leaving a case in a hot chamber will help reduce buildup.

Mosin bores are not chrome lined.

thank you. I will have to get some number 9. I've never shot surplus i've only shot modern factory ammo. I still don't quite understand why a chrome lined barrel is better than a non chrome lined barrel

I've found mounting a section of cleaning rod to a drill motor, and using

any decent degreaser with hot water on a 20gauge swab also helps...

Be sure to clean the bore and barrel, and lubricate it, when you're done.

Is it new steel cased stuff or brass? My Mosin gets a horrible case a "sticky bolt" If I shoot anything but brass...

Chrome bores are good if you out in a moist environment and cleaning "isnt important" (note the "") It protects your bore from rusting... I read that for some reason (unknown to me) that accuracy suffers from a chrome lined bore...

It depends on your criteria. Chrome lining is very difficult to apply in a even coating. Which means it decreases accuracy. The typical proccess leaves high and low spots in the bore and distorts bullet flight. While its actually a very desirable thing for belt fed machine guns as they are more area effect weapons its not for the average soldier's rifle.

Think about it like running an indy car over a dirt road that has seen several seasons of rainstorms with no upkeep to running the same car on a track designed and maintaned for racing purposes.

It offers some advantages in that its very difficult for the heat and pressure of a fired round to eat it away so you get greatly increased barrel life.

In terms of using surplus russian ammo shellac preservative coatings will not stick or transfer itself to chrome lined metal. Chrome is also extremely rust resistant so corrosive primers have nearly zero effect on chromed chambers and bores.

Modern ar15 barrels by some barrel makers have nearly perfected chrome lining techniques and in the higher end ar15 market you get nearly no accuracy loss and all the benefits.

I shoot the cheapest Eastern Block ammo I can buy. I have just short of 40 Mosins, and have never had a "sticky-bolt" problem with any of them. When I get one, I clean it with boiling water (after removing the stock, of course) then I scrub the chamber with a chamber brush (by hand), then clean and oil like I would a Remchester.

If these guns are clean, the head-space is correct, and there is not a piece of broken shell stuck in the bore, they work fine.
