For destruction (Sob!) of a firearm, find a cutting torch (most muffler and auto shops). Remove action from stock. Remove bolt. Cut receiver into 3 pieces, one cut passing thru chamber. It is now no longer a firearm.

Other means of cutting, such as a hacksaw, do not suffice. Total melting of the receiver will count, but is hard to do unless you have a foundry.

I believe he said he already sold the parts. It that is the case, the bolt/receiver can be discarded. No hope of a kid getting ahold of it and building a new gun from it. You could dispose of it at the local scrap yard. Or do what we do, put it in the trunk of a car going in the crusher.

buy another one. that's kind of the thing with M-N's - they are cheap as the day is long

I'd never shoot a cracked chambered rifle of any type personally, no matter what was done to it

even though it's broken I would hate destroying it. I will remove the barrel and see where the crack is, If the crack is in the barrel I will sell the receiver to someone looking to build a sporter mosin. Thanks for the help

Not saying its impossible to have a crack but I've only ever heard about one other Mosin having a catastrophic failure. Where did you get the T53? Can it be returned? How long have you had it? How many rounds have you put down the tube? Did you have it ultra sound or dye penetrant inspected? Are you sure the gas leak isn't a head space problem or a bolt problem? Pictures Pictures Pictures ! Show us.

Mosin-Nagants some time crack near the rear of the receiver. However 99.9% crack center to front. These are very dangerous fractures. The M-91 Remington Nagants often crack along the stock line. This is an often found crack in a Mosin-Nagant.

The Chinese do give lifetime warranty on their mil surp, regardless of the condition. You must however appear in person at the Cangzhou Armory, rifle in hand... Come on brother. He stripped it already!

J&G has a rifle sale. They have some nice used rifles with a fluted barrel and bolt for $300 to $400. They also have their usual milsurp fare. I am thinking of getting a 243 from J&G.
