    I just disassembled my M/N bolt for the first time. What a gunky mess.

    In the (oh so) unlikely event that I have trouble reassembling it :rolleyes: , can anyone recommend a site with good pictures?

    Hey, ,those things were made to be illiterate-russian-peasant-conscript-proof. That being said, I found the bolt to be challenging to reassemble the first time through.:D

    On this page http://world.guns.ru/rifle/rfl03-e.htm there's a link to a PDF file that is a Mosin Nagant rifle manual written by the US Army. It will tell you everything you would ever want to know about how to disassemble and reassemble your rifle.

    TimRB,

    Thanks, but I just bought that :( It's not exactly rich in detail-although it is how I managed to DISassemble it.

    Let us know how it turns out - I'm contemplating taking mine down too.

    (This from a man who couldn't figure out how to reassemble an 870) :)

    Putting the bolt back together is easy too. The only trick is to screw the firing pin all the way into the cocking piece (but not tight), then unscrew it just far enough for the scribed marks on the cocking piece knob to line up with the slot in the firing pin. As long as they're aligned, the rest will almost fall back together.

    Regards.

    Obscure gun trivia--In "Blood Alley" with John Wayne, there's a scene on the ship where you can see two extras trying to put Mosin bolts back together.
