I'm going to strip it, sand it down then finish it. I'm going to treat the wood to reinforce the strength.

I will have to decide if I'm shortening the rifle first. If I do, I will shorten the stock up front as well and try to remount the hardware. I will probably just take it down and then use Tru-oil, and then steel wool it to a matte finish. Although I have considered wipe-on polyutethane for a more weather resistant finish, or even Duracoat.

But I like the way this shortened rifle looks, and retains many of the Mosin features while still being a handier package:

I bought a mosin a few weeks ago and haven't done much with it. I just noticed that the barrel and receiver has a lot of play in the stock. I would guess it slides at least an 1/8 of an inch. That can't be good for accuracy!
I may have to put an aftermarket stock on it and save up for a hex receiver for a pure historic rifle in my collection.
The one I have is a 1943 izzy

I believe that may be a M38. The M44 and T-53 Mosins are similar, but they have a bayonet that folds to the side. The T-53 is Chinese, and is generally the cheapest of the 3 at about $150

M38








M44








T-53

Nope that one has a 20" barrel that was cut and recrowned and the stock was cut to fit, barrel bands were rebent and the handguard removed. A ring type front sight base was added, and the rear of the stock was relieved under the bent bolt handle.

M38s and M44 are climbing in price and there are enough 91/30s with some bores that are roungh near the muzzle that this concept seemed pretty good.
A little more barrel for better velocity and less muzzle blast than the M38 and M44. But still handier than the full length barrel.

Don't you start burning your fingers after about shot #5?

Mine start to get uncomfortable with a couple mags shot,

even with the handguard...

That's not mine. I just used the photo for reference. I would try to mod the hand guard as well if I did a similar conversion. I just liked how they made it handier while still retaining some of the Mosin characteristics.
