I cant tell you how many antique knives I destroyed by polishing then to new condition. You appear to have some talent, lets just try and channel it to a more productive path.
Special place in hell huh, lol. Brother this firearm has NO collector value. It is like 98 percent of the moisins out there. The op already wait it aw beat up and rusty. So I don't see it as an " early caractor flaw" but that is my own opinion.

I realise these models have no true collector value but maybe an education would prevent a bad refinish on a Winchester Super Grade in the future. And because of my early abuse of historic knives I will be on the hot seat in hell waiting for fellow members with caractor flaws.

You apparently think I am stupid person? I picked up a nice Winchester MODEL 36 in 9mm for $100 bucks today and decided it would look better to spray paint the stock and barrel neon green... (sarcasm)

The guns I have I shoot.. I use them a lot.. the Mossy was to the point where I would have almost thrown it away.. but instead hit the barrel with crushed walnut to get the rust off.. but I didn't want to re-blue a gun that is only worth $250 in UNFIRED condition.. This gun is just for blowing holes in things out in the woods and clearing out the rabbits that plague havoc in the garden.. I don't show up at rare gun shows with it and say, "hey check out my new hot rod." lol

Anyway as far as the mag problem.. I bought one of those after market replacements a few years back since I bought it with no mag.. but maybe they sent me the wrong model? Im trying to track down some pictures to compare it, since there are no ID #'s on it

Well if buffing some knives gets you a ticket to Hell, why mess with this forum?
I'd be drinkin' and hanging out with strippers instead (since my "ticket" was already bought).
Live it up man, times a burnin' !
