M-44 Mosin Nagant



Log in to see fewer ads
Well, I bought my third gun this last weekend, an M-44. And I have some questions about it.

1.) The case seems to swell slightly at the back causing the bolt to jam, I hadn't seriosuly cleaned the gun since I went directly from the gun show. I have not fired it since being cleaned, so I am not sure if that helped.

2.) It seems 7.62 x 54R is only available as surplus corrosive ammunition, is brass available for this reloading?

3.) This is the first high power rifle(carbine) I have ever shot, what is the best thing I can do to lessen the recoil till I get used to it(pads?) So I don't develop any bad habits?

Heres a link for Midway, they carry several comercial rounds for the 7.62X54R.

If you have a gunsmith around you, you might have them check the head space. Getting any swelling around the head of the case like that can mean it has to much head space. Look on the bolt for some stamped numbers and see if they match the serial number of the gun. Some will just have the last three or four numbers on the bolt. If these numbers dont match up, then diffently have the head space checked.

As for the recoil, that round is known to be a thumper. You can try a slip on recoil pad, or just fold up a towel between the gun and your shoulder.
