Editor's Note
 A suggestion before proceeding with making any alterations to your Mosin Nagantfirearm is that you can purchase replacement parts to perform the alterations upon, thusleaving your original parts untouched.
Replacement Firing Pin SpringReplacement Sear/Bolt Stop
 I recently bought three (3) M-44 Mosin-Nagant “Re-arsenaled”Carbines (Izhevsk Arsenal-Russia); they are stamped either 1944 or 1945. The M-44 is the final wartime version ofthe Mosin illustrious line of bolt-action rifles, and probably the most manufactured boltaction in the world. These may be bought for $55 for a “good”condition, to $70 for an“excellent” condition, by mail if you have a C&R License <www.atf.gov>. Russian shoulderweapons are simple, and very well machined and finished (except for the furniture) for amilitary weapon. However, in my opinion, all three (3) of these weapons really needed at

least three (3) functional improvements to “sporterize” the action. Bayonet removal andstock (furniture) treatment are a subject for another day.It should be said that the M-44 makes an excellent “Camp Gun”. It is inexpensive to ownand shoot, rugged, highly reliable, easy to maintain, compact, and powerful. It is also veryaccurate for a Carbine. Usually only military weapons meet such strict criteria. Let’s get onwith how to make the functional improvements. I will assume you already know how todisassemble/re-assemble your carbine. If you don’t, you can find excellent articles on thisweb site about Mosin rifle, and bolt, disassembly/re-assembly.1. THE BOLT WAS EXTREMELY HARD TO OPEN (acted as if jammed), and it wasalmost impossible to pull the cocking knob to rotate it CCW (left) as needed to safety, orsimply to re-cock, the weapon. Since the Mosin Nagant cocks on opening the bolt, itseemed sure the firing pin (coil) spring was too strong, too long - or both, to allow properoperation of the bolt action. It was necessary to shorten the firing pin (coil) spring tobetween 3.18” to 3.25”new length. First remove and disassemble the bolt (Fig.1 & 2).

Shorten the firing pin spring by grinding, and “squaring” the new end of the spring. (Fig. 3)This can be easily accomplished on a bench grinder. Re-install the firing pin andshortened spring; then reassemble and install the bolt. This simple modification makesbolt opening (and cocking) the piece, a hell of a lot easier. It also makes manual cocking,or safetying the piece possible.
