So, I have a Mosin Sporter that I am unhappy with. I'll be selling off the scope, scope mount, muzzle break, and aftermarket stock and starting over shortly after I finish the blackout project. The test subject is a 1953 Hungarian M44 with the Bayonet removed. One of the first things I plan to do is remove the barrel. I know that the rear sight base is silver soldered on. What is the chance that the barrel threads are silver soldered as well? How can I tell? Can I break the silver solder with torque, or does it need to be heated? I'm ready to invest in a barrel vice and mosin wrench, but I need to know what I am in for. The reason I plan to go to this extent is that I want to eventually build my own 700 in 30.06, but I want some experience pulling apart and putting back together bolt actions first, and this is the gun that I have to work on.
