I was just wondering what u guys thought of my Mosin. It took me about half a year to compleate. I started with oven cleaner on the stock, sanding, stain, and a clearcoat. I then reblued with Birchwoods Super Blue, after sanding out the dents in the metal. I purchased the bent bolt on ebay for $30 I then purchased a specialy designed side rail for Mosins at kalinkaopitcs. I had a gunsmith install it for me for $40. I then purchased a 6x42 posp scope off ebay for $70. I used a file to inlet the stock for the rail. After clamping the scope I noticed that it was way too far back. This led me to cutting about 2 inches from the butt of the stock. I also only clamp the scope about 3/4 the way on the rail. This makes for perfect eye reliefe. If you have any questions about anything please ask. The whole thing cost about $200.
