update on my early Ishevsk Hex 91/30

Postby rjmt » Sun Apr 19, 2015 1:55 pm

My wife found this rifle at a Big 5 for under $200 several years ago
an early Ishevsk Hex 91/30 - serial number in the 20000 range
all matching numbers - no strike throughs
early pre-war stock with several war time repairs, including a Russian splice on the for end
then several months ago, I found a brass end upper handguard on ebay
brass ends with aluminum rivets
installed Finn 2 stage trigger and spring
modified ejector bar for easy clip feed
lapped bolt with JB bore compound
cut 3 coils off firing pin spring
Smith Sight adjustable front sight
relieved stock to float barrel
Smith Sight accurizing kit, including corking barrel
now, my eyes are on the back side of 65, yet I can shoot this Mosin under 2 MOA at 100 yds, off sand bags with PPU match ammo

at my age, I can't ask for more than that!!

Great looking work. That hand guard is a great find.

as I replied on an other posting, I was informed by another Mosin collector that these brass end handguards with aluminum rivits are from the Romanian Mosin 91/30 armory rebuilds
I find that just as unique as my son's original Russian brass end hand guard
just an other addition to the history of the Mosin
