Where can I find a new barrel band retainer spring for a mosin nagant M44? It's for the rear band closest to the action. Mine snapped (:cuss:) and I need advice on removal of other one.

Would JB Weld repair that okay? Need advice before tomorrow, please.

numrich might have some as well

as far as removing the band springs i use a panelling nail with the point clipped off flat... insert into the hole on the other side of the stock and tap the bandspring out

Well I got the old piece out, and I sent in an order to buymilsurps.com.

Costing me 8 bucks and 6 for shipping.

I'm a little sad I can't shoot the rifle without annoyance until then.

JB weld does not work

My front barrel band clip is somewhere forward of where I was shooting....

I can still shoot it yes, but like I said, without the annoyance... lol. And now the stocks are bare and the wood-filler'd in the dents that I couldn't take out with steaming. Just gotta do the final sand then finish. Then I'm done, until the new part comes in.
