Default Mosin-Nagant Rifle Parts

I just recently purchased a MN M44 Carbine. The stock is in very rough condition. Does anyone know of any good MN websites that sell wooden and synthetic replacement stocks?

I think boyds has wood ones and ati synthetic

A new stock is pretty much going to run the cost of a new mosin if you go wood...

It would be More economical to refinish the stock, this would be a good idea as long as the stock is not split and doesn't have any cracks. There are many tutorials online for doing so.

Here are some pics of the rifle. Opinions on the stock?

Not that bad. I would start w/ BLO, soak it down, let it sit an hour, wipe it off. Do this till grime comes off. You can steam the dents with a damp wash clothe and iron. Finish with BLO again.

Refinishing it would be a nice project and you will likely get a good result. Leaving a few dings and dents would be normal for a milsurp, so a perfect job might be the wrong way to go.

A lot of Mosins for sale have rough bores but excellent wood and hardware. You can still buy one for $130. The bolt assembly will resell for $50 easily, unless you decide to keep a spare. Thus a near-new Mosin stock will cost you $80, give or take.

There is nothing wrong with that stock. It is an old gun that is supposed to look well used. I don't know why you're here. I would shoot it until it fell apart as is.

There are only so many original M44's in this country. If you modify the gun you destroying history. Have a shot of real Russian vodka after every trip to the range.

I agree that it is a loverly stock. I have grown to believe that historic rifles should look like that. It doesn't affect the way it shoots and it will show that you don't need no stinking new Browning.

Is it a M-44 or a T-53? Just curious.

I don't like the stock. It is either Chinese or looks Chinese. Most Russian M44s look better. There may be a bit of history in a Russian carbine. If it is Chinese, its history is irrelevant IMO. I would get a new stock for a reasonable price.

Must correct my prior estimate, if you care. It was based on a full size Mosin. Carbines cost more.
