    Very nice. Is your M-N a M1938 or a 91/59? I bought a Yugo SKS last weekend, too.

    Nice pair. Now, buy a case of 7.62x54 and a case of 7.62x39 and you'll be all set! :D

    Congrats on your purchases. Both are lots of fun. Just make sure you clean properly after shooting if your using corrosive ammo (most 54r is) or you will end up with sewer pipe for a bore.

    BTW - Get ready for some serious muzzle flash with that Mosin :D

    Bore

    The bore on the m38 is already not in to good of shape,I'm hoping after it is shot it will clean up a little better.I've used jb,sweet's,etc on it..The rifling is good but there is some pitting and frosting.

    A minty bore M-38 is really tough to find. They all seem to have varying amounts of worn lands and pitting. I suspect cleaning may only reveal more holes in yours. I had to search high and low to find an M-38 with no counterbore that had good lands all the way out to the crown. They were used and abused. But they're still excellent carbines. I use mine as a truck gun. Very few rifles of that weight and none for that price can pack the punch of a .30'06 class cartridge.
