    Sweet baby jeebus, phrost...you find some weird ****.

    As for the head-spacing question:

    Mosins are not like other rifles. Over 6 million were made, and many were hodge-podged together from multiple parts built in multiple factories (all to the STRICT tolerances DEMANDED by Russian military doctrine...which means "whack it with a hammer till it fits."). Not to mention the sheer variety of cheap, crappy ammo that gets fed to these things. So there is no "official" correct headsapcing for a Mosin Nagant.

    You basically have a screw at the end of the bolt that you adjust while the bolt is disassembled. You get about two full turns of the screw to work with, but you have to do it in 180-degree increments, otherwise the firing pin will not line up with it's housing. You take it apart, adjust, reassemble, and see if it works. If not, take it apart and adjust again.

    Fortunately, it's not a complicated procedure.
    And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

    Is it me or does that guy look he's aiming that frankenrifle into the ground?

    I declare this as a job well done. Hope you enjoy your Milsurp hotness. You'll have to post the results of your sight-ins and your best group!
