I installed a Huber trigger and adjusted out the slack and shimmed slightly under the original sear spring and now have a sweet trigger pull. And the method I use for safely carrying my Mosin is to only load four rounds in the magazine, hold them down when moving the bolt forward to close the bolt on an empty chamber. When ready to shoot, open the bolt, chamber a round and shoot.

And I have read that the Mosin is more accurate like on a firing range with the bayonet attached as the bayonet nulls out some of the barrel
harmonics when firing but I neither fire on ranges not with the bayonet attached, nor have I modified my rifle in any manner than the trigger and sear shimming. It isn't pretty but I love this rifle !

I installed the spring and washer on one 91/30 and a Timmy trigger on one of my other Mosin's. The poor accuracy was not a trigger problem. LOL.

Although The washer or shim fix is widely used, it is a dangerous adaptation unless properly tested for bump fire. Aside from banging the butt on the floor you need to chamber a spent casing and pry up the rear end of the bolt firmly to move it as far as you can to see if the sear will disengage. There is considerable slop in the back part of the bolt in some Mosins. I have seen some fire without the modiication.

I have a 1930 hex receiver model. There is no Mosin Nagant listed that is like mine. It has a dragoon receiver, bolt and M30/91 sights. The trigger is fair and it cycles as well as a modern rifle. It shoots very well with winchester 180gr. It's adequate with 203gr SP ammo.

Very pleased! Picked up a box of Winchester 180 gr SP and a box of Lellier & Bellot 180 gr SP today and put her on the bench. I have never shot it with "good" amo before. She likes the Winchester just a bit better, 3 shot group 1.5 inches. L&B 3 shot group 1.75 inches. Both brands had 2 holes touching. Sighted in with Brown Bear so was shooting about 3.5 inches high (best group with Brown Bear was just under 8 inches). Dropped it 6 clicks, took 3 more of each, put 3 in the center ring and 3 just outside. Total group size out of 6 mixed shots was an honest 1 7/8 and that was the L&B rounds. The Winchester kept 1.5 so this was no accident or stroke of luck. Turns out the trigger was money well spent. White tail beware!
