My Mosins

Postby Marauder 1 » Fri Sep 03, 2010 10:22 pm

Here are my 2 Mosins, The 1944 Tula Ex Sniper was my first purchased from Big 5. The stock has a tons on markings. The second is a 1931 Izzy that was also purchased form Big 5. I'm still going over her with a fine tooth comb. I have a 3rd Mosin which is their older sister a 1929 Tula that is still waiting her final release from the state..

Nice set of long barrels! Which has the best bore?

Well DD I'm usually really picky when it comes to bores and buying a Mosin. I bring my high tech bore light and a jewelers loop to inspect the bores very carefully. That being said both are bright and shiny, the fit and finish on the 1931 is much better at the moment, BUT that is changing as I type. I've been doing some refinishing work on 44 bolt. Here is what I started with.

The top one is from my 1944 Tula Ex Sniper and the bottom is my 31 Izzy. The top one is starting to finish up like the Izzy now, a bit more to go however.

Wow, my bolts look the same in that view. The 1943 M44 has the same scroll marks and the 1929 M91/30 is smooth and better finished.
I had to polish the mating surfaces on the '43 as there were lots of rough spots. Definitely wartime production stress.
