It will not release a shell out of the mag until the fired round is ejected.

Hope you got some good ammo. The Albanian ammo I got a few months ago won't chamber 80% of the time. I have a M44 and a few 91/30's and I can't get the bolt closed on the ammo. About 2 in 10 will let me close the bolt and fire. Otherwize, great gun and booom muzzle flash big time.

Holy crap that looks brand new. Thats one nice Mosin. Probably has been rearsenaled. My brother has a Mosin Nagant M91/30 Sniper. Not a fake. Actual sniper. Came with PU Scope lower mount. All he had to do was buy the PU scope for $300.

Waldo, that thing looks NICE! I've got 3 Mosin-Nagants, 2 91-30s and a Romanian M44. I like my M44 the best, but it's not as nice looking as yours!

Yeah, but your 98k is worth what you got in it as the basis for a sporter if nothing else. The Mosin's are fine as curios, they kick like a mule, are fun to shoot, but are basicly just good for what they are. I like mine, but I would take a mauser any day over it. Scott

Yeah, I agree. Mines an actual Nazi rifle(proofs removed of course[:(]). But that is one nice looking Nagant.

Very Nice!! Looks alot better then mine. I suggest you think about getting a recoil pad for it, the kick hard. Also check out the muzzle flash, especially at night! sgtar15

Nice Moisin. I really enjoy Finnish 91/30, but can't say the same about my Chinese M-44 copy. Big difference in quality, but that's what you expect from most Chinese stuff

I saw Waldo shooting it as I pulled up to the range, it looked like it came of the assembly line yesterday,the thing that impressed me the most about Waldo's peice was how well the stock was fit up, the russians were usually pretty sloppy, Waldo's was'nt, apperently there were still some craftsmen in poland, Waldo, the ammo you were shooting may have been either the 147gr or 174gr bullet, (according to this book I have, these 2 weights are most common, but there are other weights as well that you'll run across) velocity is listed in metric,(so I don't know how fast it's going) Also, that stuff was probably corrrosive, So if you haven't cleaned it out, you'd better get to it soon, easy way to neutralize the corrosive salts is to soak a patch in a 50/50/ mixture of ammonia and water, wring the patch with your thumb and forefinger and run this up the bore and swab it out a few times and then run a dry patch in and dry the bore,then clean the bore as you normally would, I'd consider ALL surplus nagant ammo as corrosive, no matter what it says on the box

Waldo - that is one nice lookin' Mosin Nagant. I'm not sure why, but I've never taken a likin' to the Mosin's. Kinda like wheel guns. Don't care much for them either. Don't know why. Just never have. Still, nice one you found.

200gr bullets Eh,? WOW, I did'nt think they were that heavy,I know how you feel about the WW-2 bolt guns,right now I've got 3-mosins (1 on hold for a friend)4-miltary mausers,a .no4-mk1 enfield (.303) they grow on you,Last summer I went and got a C&R license,and have been broke since, Seriously, It's paid for itself on the first rifle I ordered,If you think you might want to pickup a few more of these neat old rifles, A C&R maybe the way to go,cost $30.00 for 3 year license,(which you renew in 3years)you can buy C&R classed firearms directly from the wholesaler and get them shipped right to your door! no more going to some dealer had having him order it for you, and clip you a little for making a phone call, no forms to fill out either, all you have to do is keep a bound book like a dealer does, so when you buy a C&R rifle it has to be entered in your book,(that might take about 2 mintues depending on how fast you write) this C&R thing has worked great for me, best $30.00 I ever invested

Nice Mosin, but here is a picture of my $100 toy. Actually mine was $99.00 but with shipping it was $107.00. I love my C&R license! [img]http://www.imagestation.com/picture/p766e60daf68549d9a9f85870805af8fa/fe56c7cd.jpg.orig.jpg[/img]

Buttplate is steel, the lighting in my computer room just made it look that way.
