I have the 91/30, 1942 tula made. Its ok but a Mosin will never be a Mauser.
Id love to see that article. The mosin is less accurate, less durable due to its bolt design, and less reliable(exteded magazine). And the sights...well I think the mauser wins there as well. Plus they have a tendancy to suffer from sticky bolt syndrome compared to the mauser.meshmdz said:i agree the mauser is the best action in the world. however, a recent article in shooting times suggests overall performance the mosin is better than the mauser.. better sights, more accurate, longer barrel, etc.. the russians created a fine fine weapon with the M44. the mausers are not more expensive though in my dealings. we got a M48A yugo mauser in a while back and it was about the same price as the mosin yet not in as good as shape. both are great military sniper rifles. i take the mosin over the mauser though. just me.
That stuff for the most part is a waste of time and money on a mil-surp gun. We're talking about a gun worth 50$-200$Mndfusion said:any k98 can be made to shoot better -- any m44 can be made to shoot better.
1. Glass bed stock for tiight reciver fit again.
2. Lapp locking lugs, not on well worn guns...
3. Lapp the rifles crown, this is the most important part as this is when the bullet leaves the barrel and any burr or mishape will allow bullets to fly out and not group..
5. shoot match ammo or reload. If shooting factory stuff trty a few diff. weights and brands b4 buying bulk to see what your gun likes... you can do this yourself when u reload by raising and lowering powder till your hitting 1/4 moa.
