Mosin #4... *sigh*
 
i had 45 minutes to blow after lunch while waiting for a bank official at my bank to return from lunch so i made a big mistake by stopping at dunham's to check their c&r stock. they had a couple of hex receiver mosin 91/30 ive been wanting a hex mosin and ended up getting a 1932 ishvek. so im up to 4 now.

imported by ati it came with most of the goodies including a bayonet.

mosins are evil and reproduce like mad. the other hex rifle had a slightly nicer stock but this one had some brass fittings and once shined up and the stock refinished will be a nicer gun. the bore was tighter at the muzzle a test bullet would go down very far at all so it may slug out small enough to use .308 bullets for reloads.

enough rambling here are the pics:

I do like those brass fittings...:cool:

Congrats Jon, see ya when you adopt #5!! :D

Yeah, my #3, a 1925 Izzy, 45 inch stock, horrid thick red varnish job,

all serials are intact, rifling good, so I can only assume it was slated for

deep storage, and that's why they pasted it with such a varnish job.

It should be a 1891 Dragoon, but it's got the routered grips on the stock?

Naarrgh...

It's a good looking rifle, Jon. Congratulations.

Wait till you see it when im done with it!! ive got two coats of finish on the stock. Prolly going 3 or 4 more before im happy with it.

I just purchased one of these, can't wait to pick it up. What sort of finish are you using on the stock, I think I will have to put a little work into mine as well.

the issue i had with it is the age of the wood. its so damn old and dried out it was hard to get it to take the stain well. i did break the front handguard band retainer putting it back together and had to dig one up off gunbroker. spare stock metal parts are dmn hard to find. even so i cant find some parts.

sling hole estuchions im going to have to make myself. once i get those made and the new retainers show up it will be ready.

the stock was not originally found on a 1938 model as its a post war surplus refurb stock so i had zero issues with doing it up in pink. what i am going to do is hunt down a nice pre war style and inish out very nicely with a redish or plum like finish
