PostSubject: Mosin front sight adjusting tools and powder coating   Mon Oct 31, 2011 1:41 am

Well, I started with a tool for the 91/30 front sight, then it kind of snowballed. At the present time I machine two versions of the tools, what I call the "Range Buddy" and "Gunsmith". You can read more about them on my website at Elby Custom Services, I tried to post a link but being a newbie I can't do that for another 7 days it says...I'll update as I can!

Currently I have listed ones for the Soviet and Albanian 91/30's, the 1946 and up M44 and T53, and the M38 and 91/59, but I also make special order ones for the pre-1946 M44 as well as whatever particular Mosin you might come up with that my regular tools don't fit.

I also do powdercoating, which was the original focus of my "hobby" but the sight tools quickly took over my time. In the past year I've shipped to 8 countries and I'm pretty sure close to all 50 states, if I ever get a bit of free time I may check on that and see if there's any states that I have yet to send one too!

You can also find my sights stocked at buymilsurp.com, but at a bit higher price than through me, of course!

cheers

I guess I really need to order a few of these from you one of these days. But all of mine still don't need adjusting.
However, I'm liking the idea of putting a bull barrel on a Mosin to see what kind of accuracy I can get out of one like silvertip has already done.

I'm considering that as well, since I have a complete T53 with a sewer pipe for a bore that keyholes EVERY round at 25 yards...IF I can get the old barrel out, I've started messing with it but need to build the wrenches first I can tell. If not, and the funds loosed up here soon I suppose I could buy the barrel and receiver from ClassicArms and go from there.

Yep, it was one of those $65 ones that Omega was selling a while back, I think I got the last one he had. He had them listed on his site as being in "Fair" condition, I guess he has some other scale that he uses as far as that goes. When I complained to him about the bore being crap, he just said "I just grabbed one that looked good to me"...

I heard he has more now, but once burned I'm pretty cautious. I have read that a lot of people got good ones from him, so it might have just been my luck. I think I'll save up and get an actual M44 or M38 for my carbine fix, or like you say use this one as a project if they still have the heavy barrels by the time my finances here straighten out, but no telling how soon that'll be!

Im sorry it wont let you post your link Mogunner. Thats an example of the kinda bullshit restriction I was trying to get away from by starting this place. Laughing But I guess that is actually a good one. So it slows down the spammers a bit.

Here tis... (I hope it lets me post it)
