Beat Up Rusty Mosin M44

My brother gave me a beat up rusty mosin m44 when I was home and I took it apart the other day and soaked it in hoppes and cleaned the barrel. Its not too bad inside the barrel. But boy was the outside rusted!!! I took it apart and wire wheeled the rust right off.

Here are some pictures of the stock after I sanded it with 100grit and finished with 220 grit. I took the russian red right off. It was all scratched up and down right ugly.

I put 2 coats of BLO on it today.

That's pretty nice wood on that old Russian hammer
Too bad the issued cleaning kit is under a building in W. Germany somewhere

That's funny, but probably true.

I stuck one of my M44s in an Archangel stock, changed out the sights and put in a Timney trigger. It is a hoot to shoot and I love the 10 rnd box mags.

No it's a normal round receiver dated 1944 with triangle and arrow.

I was buying 44s by the case some yrs ago. One Sat a boy & his buds came to buy one & they asked if I had any more. I told them that was the last of the nice ones, I only had a few lesser ones left & they asked to see them. I brought them out & they went nuts! The Russian soldiers had carved their names, (I remember Igor, Vlad, Slvinky) girlfriends names, cut "Notches" under their girl friends names () They bought every one that was like that. My wife told me I should get my pocket knife out & carve up every one I get!

Thanks from nf1e
