    Nice Family Pic's

    really nice!!! that M-44 looks like it has a stock reinforcing bolt behind the trigger guard, never saw one like that, any idea why it is???;)

    I like the looks of the laminated 44. I can't recall ever seeing one in person out here.

    Thanks, I believe that in the laminates they did put reinforcing bolts behind the trigger area that you don't have in the hardwoods.

    BOLT

    The stock bolt is fairly common on M44 laminates. Some of them would split from recoil, since the laminations run front to rear and the rear action bolt would act like a wedge.
     
  16. 91/30 pics

    Top 1931 hex that I refinished with polyurethane. The wood turned out awesome. It goes from almost blonde to black and I get lots of comments on it.
    Bottom..1926 Tula that has been factory refurbished and unissued. Still has the shellac on the metal for the sling holes. All matching numbers. These are my two favorite Mosins.:)

    Absolutely spendid rifles, rtlesnkesbite.

    I'd be embarassed to post pictures of mine after taking a look at those.

    But you know, if you were any kind of a man at all, that table would be made out of Russian Birch and covered in a red colored shellac.....

    You can see how much I have to offer this forum lately.

    Thanks for the photos!

    You guys are going to be sorry I ever got a digital camera!:D

    rtlesnkessbite, Yes and I see why, it appears that you have one of the early Dragoon rifles which was later converted into a 91/30, that's a nice plus. Check out the links that I have included below, the first has photos of the receiver markings, you will see one that matches yours that is a dragoon. The second link shows all of the Tula and Izzy markings along with non convert 91/30 markings.
