I just bought a Mosin-Nagant Q: for $90, stripped it down sold the parts on eBay for $150, saving just the barrel, receiver and bolt. I bought an ATI stock, LER scope, muzzlebrake, trigger spring, and now can shoot 2" at 100 yards with surplus ammo. I was hoping you’d have some additional insight on improving the accuracy we DIY types can use. Richard Logue via e-mail Mosin-nagant sporter too light and test it before you trust it. I adjusted mine too light and had to readjust it heavier. It’s far better than the old military trigger. You might also look at Timney Triggers. Their trigger has a safety lever on it, and is adjustable for pull weight. I haven’t played with installing a Timney myself for some time, but I have a Les Baer AR with a Timney factory installed and it’s nice. Bedding the action to the stock with Brownells AcraGlass may also help. A next step could also include higher quality match ammo or just start handloading for the cartridge to shrink your groups even further. Before buying bullets, slug the bore. Bore sizes in Mosin-Nagant barrels can be as tight as .308" and as large as .311" or so. Both sizes are available from the major bullet makers.

You might look at installing an aftermarket trigger. The stock trigger pull is usually something only a Russian drill sergeant could love. One is the Huber Concepts trigger. I installed a Huber Concepts trigger in my Krag sporter. It wasn’t hard. Just make sure you don’t set it Got a burning question to ask the editor?
