What do you think about this video?

Matt Caldwell: nice your wife helped out, my wife says....your on your own sweetie

Joshua Wells: Very nice Mosin! You do have a rare, hard to find Mosin with the brass. I like it! lmao... I subscribed after you took the shot of Vodka! RA! Great video!

Larry Barker: Hey guys, I'm very much into guns and starting to refinish my old Mosin, but I am also a Paranormal Investigator. Check out the EVP at 4.56-4.58. Believe it says 'Help'. 'I'm a Bastard' or something similar. Can't believe nobody else pointed this out. 

Born2befree: Very nice

Sir Masteryan: looks beautiful

seabaas: lol , "hundred dollar gun about to look like a hundred and twenty dollar gun"

Gary39heli: Nice job !

dalton vickers: great job, be proud of yourself, you did good for first time. Good lookin' mosin

Eric Boff: Great video! I also am suscribed to iraqveteran8888. You did an awesome job on the rifle! Hoping mine turns out the same, should arive in about a week!

Nathan Bright: The steel wool is often referred to as "triple aught" or "quadruple aught" the rifle looks great!

Brian Walsingham: Great job and what a transformation. I'm about to purchase my first MN 91-30 and after seeing this vid I'm thinking about refinishing it. 

Captain Moroni: Thanks Malro67!! Awesome video and thank you for the good work. I absolutely like the finished results!! Thanks for the video brother!!! (I had to 10-3 the Vodka though... lol)

Jordan Obrastoff: I have the brass fixtures as well. Same story, the only one in the store with them, thought it looked nice (I'm a big steampunk fan). Stood out like a one-eared puppy.

ladefreakndah: The wood wasn't stained. Mosins were finished over with a shellac mixed with a red alcohol based dye. That's why the woods lighter where the shellac flaked off. Shellac was used because it was easy to remove with alcohol so the arsenal could steam dents out, touch up, or make other repairs. Btw it's called quadruple-ought or 4-ought steel wool. It's the most abrassive thing to use on the stock just to knock the hairs off after rapidly drying it with a blow dryer. Anything harsher will change the dimensions of the wood which is bad. Because it's dead. It ain't growing back. 

azrwilkinson: That looks fantastic! Just bought my first one today and I am wanting to refurbish it as well. Thanks for the detail and info. Maybe see you sometime in AZ.

Johnny KingKong: very nice looking !! too dark for my taste but you did a very nice job for a first time project !

Nicolas Jimenez: I don't know if I should have but I picked up my mosin Saturday and cleaned it today. My method of cleaning you ask ? I have a very unique process complex you can say. I took the rifle apart, starting with the stock I just took a sponge and soap along with hot water and scrubbed it down. Rinsed it off (was like Brand new, no cosmoline at all) dried it with a towel, then took a thin rag put some gun oil on it and coated the stock with oil. I did the same with the other wooden part below the barrel along with the cleaning rod.next I took the magazine part and placed it in boiling water took it out scrubbed it and repeated that several times. Then wiped it down with dry cloth, then put a layer of oil. The bolt I just wiped down with dry cloth and oiled it. Now the barrel I cleaned with soap and water along with a sponge and then put a layer of oil. Put it back together and put another layer of oil all over it in every little area (may I remind you I just abused the rifle with soap and water). Lastly I gently wiped away and excess oil and there is NO cosmoline what so ever. Took me about 30 minutes. Rifle looks great. The reason I put this is for anyone else trying to clean there mosin. The bolt is soo smooth and trigger pull is like an angel. 

Mrbuttons aug: beautiful weapon

Hatchet69th: Phenomenal job my friend thanks for the tips!!

xzqzq: Nice job of refinishing the stock. How does the rifle shoot ? 

Auszug21: actually my 1944 91/30 had those brass caps as well but for some reason they were painted black or dipped in something black it was pretty thick

eaglesfan19029: yes. The Krud Kleaner seeps into the wood and takes out the cosmoline and the original finish. That's why you see later in the vid he re-stains the wood and applies a clear coat.

1bls: you got me thinking about refinishing my M91.

Ron Rinaldi: Hey bro, I know you and found a video from you while I was looking up refinishing a Mosin Nagant I just picked up. We got to go shoot together! I saw you have old mutual friend sof mine without mentioning names, like MR B!

miataguy94: your was refurbished just like mine :) i was relieved when i found out the meaning on the crossed sqaure on the stock

malro67: @RedSoxBowHunter its probably just the lighting, the blue on this gun was already in excellent condition so it really wasn't necessary. thanks for watching

malro67: @StraightArrow88 the trick with the staining isn't how many coats you apply, its how long you leave it on the wood. If you want it really light I would suggest applying it and wait like 1 minute then take a rag and wipe off all of the stain. I waited about 10 minutes before I wiped off my stain.

chillywit: Nice refinish job....however, I think I read on Minwax's website that they don't recommend mixing an oil based stain with a water based finish as you did. I'm in the process of refinishing my Mosin stock and decided to use their oil based products (Red Chestnut color stain with their rub on polyurethane satin finish). I figured that since it's impossible to get all the cosmoline out, it was better to go with oil based products versus water based ones.

Zach M: How many coats of the Red Mahogany stain did you apply? I'm wanting to re-do my Mosin finish but not sure what stain to go with. Yours looks nice at the end of the video, but I think I want a lighter color to mine.

malro67: @farleyjj1 good luck to you! most people don't realize that if you leave out the vodka you will actually ruin your gun. ;)

nov tan: i think it would look super nice if you coated the barrel and the other visible metal components that dont effect the rifles operation with some brownells paint. your vid is awesome

BASSPLAYAAA: Very nice finish, couldnt have done better

farleyjj1: Nicely done. You've inspired me to try the same with my Mosins -- with particular attention to the step involving Vodka!

Silver Back: Looks good. Thanks for vid.

Jim Bailey: Excellent video. Thank you for taking the time to film this. :)

SharpeyeHodgey: Because of our restrictive gun laws over here. The government makes it harder and harder every year and makes a a crap load of money from our shooters by making it expensive. It costs a lot of money for these firearm stores to get weapons in, taxes and so forth. There for to get profit they need to jack the price up a bit. US isnt as restrictive and thats why weapons are a bit cheaper when comparing to Aus, taking into account the currency differences as well.

Don Wil: Probably birch but Mosins were also made in other countries which used various types of wood for their stocks; Russia/Soviet Union: Birch France: European Walnut United States: (made by Remington prior to 1919), American Walnut Finland: Arctic Birch Poland: Beech Hungary: Beech Romania: Beech China: Catalpa

aandrewnoe: And hey quick question just for anyone out there I bought my first mosin and the trigger is a little loose, is that common among these rifles?

Matthew Bizal: wow that stock looks pretty decent to me - i only refurbish the ones with bad cracking or are just nasty lol

malro67: @2bullydogs oh yeah, this one turned out to be a great shooter. I just refinished two more that i havent had the pleasure of shooting yet. I'm almost to my goal of half a dozen ;).

CrimsonFlagg: It turned out beautifully. Very impressive for your first time. I can only hope that when I get one, it will look as good as yours when I am done.

Eddie Romero: just bought mine today. paid 150 which isnt bad for a project gun.

RizzoR14: 100 dollar gun that's about to look like a 120 dollar gun! Great sense of humor

Don Wil: True, most were Birch but Mosin Nagants were also made in other countries their stocks were made from various types of woods: Russia/Soviet Union: Birch France: European Walnut United States: (made by Remington prior to 1919), American Walnut Finland: Arctic Birch Poland: Beech Hungary: Beech Romania: Beech China: Catalpa

Ryan Nolan: Ukraine re-fit stock on yours too eh? The finishing is atrocious on mine.

malro67: @RedSoxBowHunter No problem man, sorry i'm getting back to you so late. It took about 3-4 hours of scrubbing and soaking with krudkutter and baking soda. After I was done I let the wood dry out for about 12 hours (you may want to wait longer). When It was all dry it had a beautiful grain and very light color, you would think it had never been touched by stain before. The project took me about 2 days. Good luck!!

malro67: @RedSoxBowHunter Yes I did. It has held up 100% over the last 7 months since I filmed the video too. I'm sure tru-oil would work just as good if not better.

RedSoxBowHunter: yo brotha, did you use that poly-acrylic in substitute of tru-oil?

stefpote: Why, thank you very much for effectively saying I'm a moron... But you know, the fact that EVERY video describes a certain method doesn't make it more efficient. I work with wood as a job so I should know a bit... Plus, I too refinished many stocks just with alcohol and yes they're doing fine. Good luck with warping, and don't complain about inaccuracy, it's just the stock swelling and touching the barrel

coozy100: doesnt everyone get it from iv8888 hahahahaha lolz. hes the badass of youtube

Schools: Learn how to get phlebotomy training in California! The job pays decent money for the amount of schools needed to graduate.
