Default Mosin Nagant M38


Just a thought, I once had a post war M44 manuactured in Poland and it was spot on the money, but I also had an M38 as you know same rifle no bayonet. You might have better luck with one, I also prefer to shoot them in their original configeration.

I did think the M38 better balanced and I shot it a little better with it. Mind you I was using Soviet military ammo, I remember because the ammo came in a bloody great sardine can with 500 rounds in it, went off like a cannon...happy days

If your rifle won't shoot consistantly, check the mount that holds the bayonet to the barrel. If you haven't already noticed, it is a sleeve that has the front sight on it and the bayonet lug as well. These can get loose from using the bayonet. Mine was shooting all over the place when I first got my M44, then figured out the front sight was moving all over the place. As I only paid $49 for mine, I just welded the sleeve to the barrel. No more problems. Just a couple of quick tack welds with my MIG welder. You gunsmithing types out there may cringe, but like I said, I only paid $49 for the rifle. I did not have much to lose. I've put about 500 rounds through it since then. No problems.

BTW, shawnyboy, I hope seriously you don't mean you have tried .308 Winchester rounds in the 7.62x54R rifles. That is NOT an interchangeable cartridge. A very dangerous situation.

You said you were adjusting the front sight? Try moving the rear sights and let me know what happens. I, too have an M44 and it is spot on. It is one of my favorites of my collection. I hope you can get it figured out. What a fun one to shoot.

Edit: Sorry, I thought you were hitting high and low. I guess I should have read it right the first time.
