    I have since finishing this rifle given it to my dad. He loves it and as a southpaw who operates the action right handed, i know.. wierd, he finds the bolt and ring safety very usable. I have since graduated to better nagants;) I am a finn fan now and my ruskies have all be deemed plinkers and are only fed junk mil-surp ammo:)

    me either really, i bought the camo stock because it looked better than the bland black one. i shoulda kept the wood. im having the bolt done for my finn now, in fact it ships off tomorrow, same workover except bead blasted instead of polished. It got a new set of MOJO tandem aperture snapsights today, and yes its keeping the fine lookin arctic birch stock. Its gonna be a sweet shootin/lookin range gun when im done...:D

    the safety on the mosin nagant is a joke. it's quicker. although not quieter, to work the action then the safety

    the russians didnt care about that, the mosin nagants were designed to be fired 5 times if they were lucky and dropped in the dirt because the shooter had just been killed. battle rifles my friend, super simple and easy to use. klunky, clanky and rattley yes, but accurate and utterly reliable was the main idea, and even the ruskies accomplished this nicely, then the finns refined it...

    Josh, I am curious about the sock over the barrel and forestock. What is it's function? Doesn't that cut down on accuracy? I'm sure it is there for a reason, but I have just never seen one before.

    Its to cut down on the glare off the polished parts as you are sticking the front half out of a blind or brush.
