    I'm going shooting this Sunday with some friends, and Brinkman is bringing his Mosin, but we don't have a broken shell extractor. How often is this usually needed, and is there any makeshift jimmy rigged shit we can use in it's place if we need to this weekend? I plan on bringing my toolbox just in case, but any thoughts? I don't want a broken case to kill the fun of shooting the Mosin :wiggle:

    You're more likely to have a stuck case. Bring a 2x4 to knock open the bolt. Generally broken shells only happen in semi-autos.

    I have never had a broken shell in a Mosin.

    What you ARE going to need for Brinkman is a shoulder pad :mamoru:

    Me neither, but I have had FTE's though. Steel cased ammo 'shroomed and was stuck. Had to tap it out with a cleaning pipe.

    motherfucking Dot. Shoulder was sore for 4 days after 200rds

    Also tell little boy blue to clean his rifle (especially bolt) beforehand and bring some solvent to clean the shit out of the action and off the bolt as he's shooting it. "New" rifle = sticky bolt.

    as far as reassembling, I think that's all he's been doing the past couple weeks is cleaning, taking it apart, and putting it back together.

    I cleaned the crap out of my 44 (I thought) before I first shot it. After 3 rounds, the bolt seized, and I had to use the 2x4 bolt release method.

    I took it home, fired up the gas BBQ, and cooked the barrel/receiver. Got it up to about 500-600 degrees and then hit it with some brake cleaner followed with a drill mounted 30.06 brass receiver brush. Heated and repeated it about 6 times until all the dried cosmoline was removed.

    Works like a charm now.

    I certainly wouldn't. I'm not metallurgist but 600 degrees would start making me wonder about tempering.

    My advice to you would be to just shoot your gun. Worry about problems if you have them.

    Maybe not to 600 degrees, 200-300 will cause the cosmo to melt out.

    Relax. Not like the shit was glowing red hot or anything. After all, we are talking about a $50.00 POS Russian rifle. Worked for me. Your mileage may vary.

    200 degrees did not even move the stuff in my 44. Stuff was caked on like Oprah's makeup and hardened like Charles Manson's Tattoos.

    I prefer the concrete table method myself.
