    Looking good. And just so you know there are some metal parts on the stock that are very easy to remove. The spring pieces that hold the metal bands around the stock and barrel can be pushed out with a punch very easily. It may make your refinishing easier.

    Beautiful! I did the same thing and couldn't be happier with the finish. I ended with about 5 coats though and slightly darker finish.

    Good work!

    Looks really nice.

    With that steel plate on the butt stock, Its like getting hit in the shoulder by a sledge hammer.

    you know, i dont think so, i didnt think it kicked anymore than my sks, my wife shot the mosin and she didnt think it kicked much either, she loved the 3 foot flame that kept coming out of the barrel though, but thanks for the idea mark
