Just traded for a Polish MN .22 training rifle, it's a 1955, stock is in good overall condition, blue is VG, has been refinished in arsenal, couterbored, but missing the SN on the butt plate, haven't got to shoot it yet, I have to take apart the bolt and either make a new firing pin, or adjust protrusion

I traded it for half a case of Golden Tiger 7.62x39 I bought afew years ago.

How did I do?

I think you did okay if the rifle is is good shape. They are certainly a unique rifle and most folks feel they will only continue to appreciate over time. I posted some information about them over on rimfirecentral a couple of years back. Rather than reposting, I'll provide a link in case you're interested.

thanks, everything I found says they are in the same price range as a romanian trainer, or a rifle is up for sale and they want $400 for it. I just happy I found one, it fits in well in my collection, now i just want to find a MN 59, or some more trainers.

i paid right at $200 for mine. its all matching and in about 90% condition.
there are two things you need to watch for on them. some of them have very little sear engagment and will fire when you flick the safety off. some of the receivers will also wear a small groove at the back allowing the cocking piece to turn to the side when the bolt is retracted.

huh, I thought that the cocking piece Turning was the safety

turning the cocking piece straight up is the safety but when the rifle has been fired and you are pulling the bolt back when you get to the end of the bolts travel it will allow the cocking piece to rotate counterclockwise from the weight of the safety if it has the groove worn into the very back of the receiver.
if the rifle has the problem it will be very obvious the first time you pull the bolt back.

OH, actually I already fixed it, the bolt bolt, or what ever you would call the castle screw that keeps the two sides of the bolt together and sets the FP depth was loose, not letting the striker hit, still is pretty loose after I adjusted it, thinking of thread tape to get it tighter.
