The particular milling mark i am concerned about is this one. Can the depression be filled?

Not really without welding.

You should really look into getting a different Mosin that you can hand pick. I'd take it as a project for a truck/ boat/ ATV/ beater rifle that I wouldn't care about dinging up. I'd probably duracoat the whole thing and not worry about the finish either.

You could fill that mark pretty easily with a welder but it will affect the temper of the metal. Tempering it again may cause warping without proper equipment. Mine turned into a "labor of love".

Yanno, OP, don't take offense, but

if you filed and sanded your

perspective a little, you'd avoid

doing permanent damage to this

really nice rifle...

These are products of a communist nation ruled by a dictator. Stalin was a friend and supporter of Hitler. Hitler turned on the Russian commies and our left leaning president FDR protected the Reds.
After the war the Russian Reds turned on America. Trusting Russians and expecting quality in their firearms are both major mistake.

Rah-heally? Got an SKS?

Perhaps we should wonder why the Russians would

be inclined to trust us after what President Wilson did to

them during the White Revolution OOOH, your history

teachers conveniently forgot to mention that one, huh?

Where'd that sexy bolt come from?

History teacher? No need I am not a pawn of Communist propaganda. If you choose to blame America for mass murders committed by the Communist too bad.
I was around during the last conflict with the "Reds". Many of us have seen too damn many Russian SKS and old Nagants. They were supplied by those kind Russians to kill thousands of young Americans.

Who really gives a ****? It's a rifle that shoots, and the OP would like to see a pretty blatant milling mark fixed. Anyone have a suggestion? Anyone have any direction to give on where to find help?
