    Some new choices

    Picked up a Mosan Nagant last friday and have completely redid the stock and I'm real happy with it. The Saturday I stopped by my local dealer and he had a Savage 270 complete package with scope so I had to have it and then yesterday :eek: He calls me to tell me he just got a Remington 700 30.06 that was bought new last year and only fired twice, I grabbed it with a nice Bushnell scope for $500!!..

    I'll get some pics up soon..

    Here's pics of the Mosin Nagant I picked up and redid for the final time with 5 coats of satin finish sanded between coats. Also an SKS yugoslav version I grabbed along with monte carlo stock. Damn thing came with a bayonet, flip up night sites and a grenade launcher!!! wanted a pistol grip style stock for it but that would have put it into the Assault rifle class :roll:


    The Rem 700 30.06 is a beauty, shot only a couple times and became mine as is for a very good price..

    Great job on the finish and sorry to hear about the folder "laws". I think your Mini is going to feel neglected.

    Re: Some new choices

    Found out last night that my SKS doesn't fire. The Hammer will not release on the trigger group no matter if it's in the gun or out. The SOB was loaded with cosmoline and I'm pretty sure I removed it all even boiling the trigger group for about 10 minutes which did remove some cosmoline that I didn't see. The only way I could get the trigger to release was to use a screwdriver and pull forward on the sear while depressing the dis connector and pulling the trigger and yup, it released and found my THUMB!!!!! :oops: That won't happen twice I can assure you. Found many videos on reworking the trigger on an SKS and sear is the usual focus but I just want a functioning firing SKS. I did pull the bolt apart on it to clean the cosmoline out of the firing pin so I don't see any slam fires..

    I already brought it down to the Shop where I bought it this morning. The guy working there is great and knows his SKS and all guns for that matter rather well. He was stumped by the trigger not working as was I . He worked with it for about 20 minutes but still couldn't get it it to release so he asked me to leave it with him and by tomorrow he would have it either fixed or replaced.

    I'm not new to SKS's but it has been about 10 years since I sold my Chinese made SKS. This Yugoslav version I just picked up seems to be of much better quality and machining. If it wasn't for the trigger being a pain in the rear I would be shooting it this afternoon..

    Thanks, LAZY.

    I haven't shot the Mauser but she is in mint condition with a very good bore and rifling so it should be able to reach out pretty good. The 700 is just a joy to hold nevermind shoot, just well designed and balanced yet kicks like a mule!!! :mrgreen:

    The Mosin is one accurate rifle with one hell of a nice round another one that kicks like a mule and iron sights are amazing at 100 yards with these, my eyes fail before the rifle ever will.. ;)

    Re: Marlin 22 Magnum

    :ugeek: I really like the wood stock on that marlin. I haven't acquired a 22 magnum yet but it's certainly on my list. One of these days you need to try and grab a group shot of your ever growing firearms collection.
