Hi, /k/. I saw this rifle at a garage sale this morning and picked it up for $75. The owner couldn't tell me what it is and I don't know either. The only mark I can see on it says 1942. The woman who sold it to me gave me a small bag of bullets that go to it I guess so one is in the picture if that helps.
These are the only markings I could see. The number 2739 is stamped on a bunch of places over the gun like on the very back end, and on the bottom and top part as shown in the pic. Other than that I don't see anything else.
MFW this nigger got a mosin at the only reasonable price for them and doesnt even fucking know he has I swear you better be trollin m8 this is gr8 b8 if not a little too l8
Inside the barrel you retarded turdshit! I want to see if the barrel is fine. I want to see if the rifling is still alive.

Here's the inside of the barrel. Sorry about the quality, hard to take the pic without brightness blinding the lense.

Lovely! The barrol is fine and markings match. That MIGHT even be a solid Mosin-Nagant. I'm no expert but this far i'd say that is a fuckn golden found!
Ur the best. Also nice trolling >:3
Mosin Nagants M91/30. it fires 7.62x54r and from your other post I can see that it was made in Izhevsk in 1942. Congrats, your rifle was a war time production and most likely used in battle although the quality will reflect this.
Now on the price you lucked out. Most mosin will run you about $180-$200 so $75 is a great deal.
I have no idea what that means.
Yeah all the parts that have the number all are the same. So that's good? Like it means the gun parts all match and it was never taken apart or whatever?
Also, general question - how do I load it? There's no clip on this gun.
Seems to bee a nanoparticle silver solution. Seems to be nice way to get barrel shiny.

There are numbers on the bolt (part with the handle), buttplate (shoulder of the stock), receiver (top), and floorplate (bottom of the magazine).
If the numbers are missing, they are replacements.
One last question, /k/ - when I go to basecoat the wood with primer, should I go black or white spray? I want to paint the gun red but I want it to show up really bright blood red but not pastel. And is there an easy way to make stencils?

>Keep the stock clean
>Keep the bolt assembly clean and lightly oiled
>If it ain't broke, don't be a fucktard
It's worth $180-$240 right now, numbers matching. It's not a super-rare model. Leave it alone and in 5 years when MLP faggots faggotize their nuggets, yours will be worth $300-$400.
I bought my nugget when they were $80 each.
acknowledging the soviet union would be acknowledging failure incarnate.
To build on this, if you use ammo with corrosive primers, use hot water to get rid of the salts left behind by the primer before you clean the gun.
The water will dissolve the salts and the heat will help the remaining water evaporate.
