    Default 1942 Tula 91/30 from the Balkans

    Ignore the towel as the backdrop, only white towel we have at this moment. On to the rifle, Only matching part is the butt plate. This rifle was used heavily since it's last refurb, about 15-20% bluing left. Prewar style receiver with a highwall(tang is dated 1942) Ran into a major problem with the bolt when reassembling it and ended up having to cut the firing in in two with a hack saw to get the bolt body off. Cocking knob dates to before WW1(indicated by the serial number on it). Salvaged parts from my 37' Izhevsk to complete this one until I buy another firing pin. Got this for 120 OTD, bore is dark but has strong rifling

    Looks like your rifle has certainly seen some action. Why did you have to cut the firing pin!?

    It froze into the cocking knob threads and wouldn't unscrew no matter what I tried, cutting it was the only option left. I'm gonna turn the longer part into a pin punch, so it doesn't go to waste

    Ohhh... you cross threaded it... that *****. Did you know that one of the notches on the Mosin multi-tool can be used as a firing pin wrench? That tool is pretty handy!

    That rifle has been shooting a lot. Maybe you should have had a pro gun smith taken a look at before hacking away?

    Now that I think about it more, I probably should have but I've got the bolt together again and I'm working on getting the rest of the cut firing pin out. So far it's working good
