    Ok I just traded a gun for this crappy Russian rifle. I load 3 shells close the bottom of the magazine/clip deal and pull back the bolt and it won't load shells ?????? Why is that ? If I just set one behind the bolt it loads but loading it properly its like the spring won't push it up. Any ideas ???

    When you say load 3 then close the bottom, what exactly are you referring to? You do know they load from the top, right?

    So what you're saying is that after the first round loads, and you pull the bolt back to eject it, then the spring does not push the next round into place in front of the bolt. Is that correct?

    The spring in the mag looks like a 'z' . I think you can bend a leg of the spring to push shells up better.

    Can you post a pis? If you can, open the mag & take a pic of it. You may have a busted, or missing spring. I have seen this before.

    It may be a weak spring. I would replace them both.

    Mosin's can be finicky. Try bending the spring to assist the next round better..

    Looking at that picture, it appears you are using an aftermarket plastic stock. Is the fit correct? If the inside of the stock is pushing against the interruptor, it might not be allowing the next round to come up. These are pretty simple rifles, and it wouldn't surprise me if its really the crappy aftermarket stock thats the problem, not the 'crappy' Russian rifle.

    That's exactly what it is. The interrupter doesn't have the required space to get out of the way. Take a dremel to the inside if the stock where the interrupter should protrude. I had the same issue.
