$119.99 Mosin with pictures!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone so I bought one of the $119.99 mosins from classicfirearms and here is some pictures

*WARNING* the following pictures are not for the faint of heart! You have been warned!

also after wacking the bolt open with a rubber mallet I took it out and disassembled it and found that except for one part it’s in very good shape and should clean up nicely!

Do they sell PB Blaster in 55 gallon drums? I don't think a 5 gallon bucket will be enough.

I’m going to pick up some tomorrow to get the top receiver screw out, the bottom one was not to bad

Just gotta figure out how I’m going to do that as I have never done this before but it should be fun

Lil bit of sandpaper and it will shoot fine...

 

Guy I know you to soak rusty car parts in cola. It cleaned them up amazingly well.

Sad that these are no longer cheap and plentiful. I had an M44 about 8 years ago. Paid I think $140 or so for it. It was in great condition, and a blast to shoot. Wish I had kept it.

Kinda looks like something from one of those WWII metal detecting videos on Youtube.

If the exterior is any indication of the what the bore has going on, I don't know if it's worth the trouble to clean up.

So what does a decent one go for these days?

I have a couple and a bunch of ammo. Might be time to let em go.

Pushing $300 seems to be the new norm.

someone on another forum suggested getting the barrel and action sandblasted, only issue with that is i dont know of any company that would do that especially with how guns are portrayed nowadays

That's likely to do more harm than good. If not carefully done, it's easily possible to blow away parts of the action entirely.  There's not much left in some places. 

Glass beads would work better to remove the corrosion than sand (AlOx) with less metal loss.  That said, I'd probably do it by hand. You'll have more in the blast work than you paid for the rifle.

Again, you'd be money ahead to just buy a decent one.

You could build an electrolysis tank and remove the rust scientific like but it would remove the bluing as well...if that’s a concern at this point.
