Me and the girl went down to new Orleans today for a st paddys parade and on the way back got a call from a friend a
That said he got his hands on a mosin. He knew I had been looking for a while on an early model. When we get back home I'll take some more pics of it. This is only one I have right now

Nice pickup there sir, definitely a keeper there. I'd keep it all original and pick up another one to play with stock refinishing/swapping. That's my plan at least when i pick up another one, whichever one is older will stay original. Mine is a 1938 and i absolutely love it.

I've found that the easiest way to clean these rifles is to take them apart and hang them outside for a few days. This only works during the summer though.

Congrats on your Mosin!

Is it a Hex or Round receiver?
I'm guessing that given that age, it should be a hex receiver because it's actually an M91. I'm interested to find out the manufacturer personally, since Remington and New England Westinghouse produced some during that time period. Here's a link to the "High Priests" of all things Mosin-Nagant related.

Congrats to you then sir, you've just picked up one of the rarest Mosin's possible. Only 750,000 Remington Mosin-Nagants were built, with about 470,000 of them actually making it to Russia. Definitely don't make plans on putting that into a new stock, buy another one from Bud's or somewhere if you want to modernize it.

remington and westinghouse did not make the mosin nagant during that period. Westinghouse reguardless of yesr always had a 1915 date. the remington was 1916 to 1917. maybe 1918
