when doing woodwork on that mosin use care. I do not know if it was the cosmoline or the type of wood however, I picked up a splinter in my index finger. It swelled up and got infected. After $50.00 office call copay, $30.00 for antibiotics and cost associated with that, my inexpensive mosin really cost a lot. Still fun though.

the only advantages to hex receivers is if YOU like the look - does not shoot any better at all - and the rarity factor. that's it

I wear rubberized garden gloves working on a Mosin. It is rough hardware too.

That's all she wrote. A little book or maybe a forum thread could be compiled, Legends Of The Mosin. Why so many people claim to know what they don't know about is a mystery.

As a mosin is not that expensive compared to other surplus rifles why not just get one of each, round and hex? Problem solved!!

Okay first of all. I am not a gunsmith and you might want to look into this a little further. I use a 7.62x54r mosin nagant field headspace gauge that does not require the extractor to be taken off. If it closes on a field gauge don't shoot it. If it doesn't close on a field gauge it should be safe to fire. I would screw the firing pin all the way back and use the gauge and see if it goes past the maximum protrusion mark. Also inspect the chamber, barrel, and sear for any extensive wear make sure there is no heavy pitting.

The multi-tool that is included shold have three notches to measure firing pin protrusion. The short notch should catch on the firing pin. The middle notch can touch or have the pin just under it. The deep notch should float over the pin and not touch it. This is used to ensure that the pin is not screwed in so deep that it would be likely to pierce a primer. There are videos on the web that show how to use the guage.

As was already stated a field guage should be all that you need to verify that you do not have excessive headspace, issues. Most of the MN 91/30 rifels were rearseneled (or completely checked, refurbished, and verified before being greased and packed for storage. the idea was they would be able to pull them out of the caves and wearhouses in a national emergency, clean the grease off of them and put them to use without having to go through a painstaking inspection process when time was critical.

It is likely that the rifle is already good to go, but it never hurts to verify things when it comes to Mil-surp rifles.
