    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.

    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.

    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.
