- Yes, but only on a non-numbers matching rifle
- Yes, only on the non-marked Arsenal refurb rifle
- No, buy an aftermarket stock and numbers mismatched rifle instead
I have two Mosin Nagants, both 91/30 Izzy’s from 1943 and both have all matching numbers. Ones a former PU sniper (w/matching bayonet) and both are Arsenal refinished–though the former PU was just refurbed for infantry use probably as it doesn’t have an Arsenal mark like the other one does. edit Oh and I doubt the stock on the former PU rifle is the original.
Long story short, should I have one of the stocks refinished? Or buy a numbers mismatched rifle with a good bore for the sole purpose of making it look pretty?
