Mosin build ?'s

Postby santi5222 » Fri Feb 21, 2014 6:02 pm

Hey guys new to the forum. I have been looking around for a bit on here. I have a build going on right now its a T53 receiver. I would like to re barrel it. I did buy an really good barrel with great groves on it. What type of work will need to be done to put that sucker on ? an is it worth it ? Im stuck in a jam here. Not sure if its worth it or just better off buying a complete 91/30 but I would love to slap the barrel on. Thanks for viewing guys. :thumbup:
Mods so far are
Boyd's Pepper Stock
Cut barrel to 24 inches (91/30) 1939
Timney trigger
Bent bolt
ATI rail
UTG bipod

Good work so far. :thumbup: I would check chamber erosion on both barrels first. You can do this with a standard OAL gauge of you choice. Then choose the least eroded barrel.

the barrel is not fully on the receiver yet. i still need to take it to a gun smith to put it on correctly . Has anyone re barreled a mosin with another stock barrel ? Thats my main question. I'm not sure if its worth doing

Your in a unique position not having a barrel screwed into your receiver. You have a choice -- new -- used -- its a hard choice.
