Episode Info:   AudioPlayer.embed("audioplayer_10", {soundFile: ""}); In this Episode Fred talks about getting ready for SHOT Show and a little about how marketing is changing in the gun industry. Fred talks about his plans for gathering info for future shows. The Mosin Nagant 91/30 is discussed. How to disassemble and reassemble this rifle. There are numerous versions of this rifle from many different countries. They have been made in very high quality and very poorly depending on when and where they were made. We are not talking collecting here, we are concerned with gunsmithing, so if you want to no more about the history and the variation, I would suggest you locate a good book on the subject. The Nagant is probably the simplest design for a bolt action, it has very few moving parts. Of course it's not the most attractive design, but they were not building sporters, this was a "soldier proof" battle implement. The pictures here show most of the steps discussed in the podcast. Two stage triggers are explained, as most Americans are not used to this concept. Trigger jobs are pretty easy on this rifle, but will deliver limited results. Your best bet would be to install a Timney trigger, which will add a sear block safety at the same time. The Timney trigger will give you a fully adjustable single stage trigger. Because this is probably the last of the surplus bolt actions rifles that will come into the U.S. it's interesting to look at how this rifle could be made into a useful tool. In future Episodes we will discuss at least three variations of custom rifles that can be made from the Nagant. We will start with the least expensive and simplest conversion and then work up to a full custom showing several options along the way.
