    It's the spring bar that also part of the shell ejector, it's the bar that keeps the shells in the mag. It had spring tension by a leaf spring held onto the reciever by a single screw right above the trigger mech.

    I wouldnt remove it.. Looking at my Mosin, it seems to me if you remove the shell retaining spring that it would no longer hold or eject shells...
    You just gotta be tough with the Mosin... :p

    same opinion. tthe rifle wont work properly. the mosin isnt a delicate kimber you gotta baby to make it work right. get in there and manhandle it.
