    I went ahead and bought one. I've even refinished the stock. It really looked shabby when I bought it. Old finish was flaking off and that red varnish was even peeling. Now it looks great. I used the RIT Dye and Linseed Oil method and it looks way better than I ever thought it would. I would post a pic, but my USB drive on my computer just took a dump. I cannot wait until I can shoot it. The only thing left for me to do is a trigger job, but I want to shoot it the way it is first.

    Took my T53 to the range this weekend... hehe, I love shooting Mosins! Even though this thing is 60 years old it still shoots true and blows the leaves away on the ground in front of me (doesn't mean anything, just cool). I think I need to get a hog with this thing.... oh yes.

    This post reminds me of why my gf says Boys are Five!

    Funny, the things that turns us into 5 yr olds again. Looking forward to shooting mine as well. Wish I had 25-50 acres to play on at my leisure.

    Local store now has T53s. Headed down to look and more than likely, buy one.

    Looking for a good source for accessories and an online manual (in English) for MN.

    Got my first Mosin last year, and the cosmoline came right off the metal parts with the boiling water method. I sprayed WD-40 on the wood and rubbed it in with my hands, and wiped the cosmoline off of it that way. Must have worked because the cases never stuck in the chamber after firing. I love the history of that gun, and I got an 1895 Nagant gas-seal revolver to go with it. They make a nice set, but the prices of both are rising. Grab one quickly while you still can.

  9. Had a rack of Mosins @ Cabela's for $149.95. Looked like they had been used as bats in the world series for 30 years. They could have at least removed the rust.

    Hacked me off and I went to another LGS and got an SA XDm 9mm 4.5 in. instead. Popped a Viridian X5L on it (my eyes are failing) and never looked back, because I wouldn't have seen anything even if I did. Shameful plug below:

    Bought mine at Gander as I said before and it had some Cosmo but not a lot. But you still have to get it out of everything. Least that's the general consensus. So I used boiling water and Purple Power. At first I thought what a pain in the ass this thing having to deal with all the cleaning but I'm glad I did as I've really gotten into it and learned and done some things I haven't done before. The stock was beat up in places and after watching refinishing stocks on YouTube using boiling water, Crud Kutter, cheese cloth and all that crap I went and bought some Citristrip and let me tell you....amazing stuff.
