Mosins have all different kinds of trigger pulls. Some are lousy, some are as good as a modern, high-end hunting rifle. I own an M-39 that has a great two stage trigger, and a 1942 Izhevsk rifle that the trigger rattles around, and is rough as a cob, and others that are any stage in between.
Except for the Finn rifles, they were mass produced when the Soviets needed anything that could go bang, as they were losing over a hundred thousand rifles a month, when things were going bad.
