    Mosin Trigger Thoughts?



    The pin serves as a roller bearing.

    The design cannot be patented as the Finns were doing something very similar back in '39.

    What do you think? I have one set up on my personal Mosin and it feels like the second stage of a two-stage K98's pull, but smoother.

    Regards,

    Josh

    Post pics of an original? What's the difference?
    I have an M44 but haven't taken the trigger out. The most I've done is dis-assemble the bolt for a thorough cleaning.

    Mosin Trigger – Thoughts?
    My thoughts are that I'm unsure of your point.

    patriot and who isn't. Its function is to obey orders, not originate them.

    Thoughts? Anything you can do to improve a Mosin trigger is worth it.

    If you pull it, and and the weapon to which it is attached goes bang; it is indeed a trigger... If said trigger is in a Mosin, and pulling it makes the Mosin go bang: then it is indeed a Mosin trigger.

    Those are my thoughts on the matter. Yours may differ... but then you wouldn't be talking about Mosin triggers, you'd be talking about something else.
    All that said....
    It could be worse.

    OK I was being a smarty pants. Sorry.

    My point was that you didn't give us much to go on. How 'bout some before and after pics or some more details.

    Hello,

    That's sticky bolt syndrome. You need to take a 12 gauge shotgun brush and spin it in the chamber. This will free the dried cosmoline. Brush out said cosmoline.

    When you shoot it, you will bleed cosmoline out of the metal's pores. Swab out the chamber every five rounds with a CLEAN paper towel each time. It will gradually get better until you have no more problems.

    Regards,

    Josh

    Josh, all fun poking aside, when dealing with cosmoline, on handguns Like P64s and CZs; I have used a soak in mineral spirits to remove cosmoline (all plastic (grips and mag shoes) is removed prior, of course).

    Might such a soak work with a Mosin? Finding a container for such a soak might be a bit harder... but you could use a galvanized window box liner for a tub. They're available in lengths up to 60"... for about $50.00, shorter for less if you wanted to just do the barrel and receiver...
    All that said....
