ProbablyInsane: Bought my Mosin and it had scratches and crap on it and it looked kinda crap. Found this video and literally copied it as much as I could all the way down to the red mahogany finish. Good job showing what you did, helped me a lot. I love the way my gun looks now.
Michael Macalroy: I have to say you did a great job on the stock. Not entirely sure you really needed to do but I'm glad to see you took the time to do it right.
antonio padilla: Loved the video brotha. Thank you very much for posting it. I redid my Russian M44 Mosin and your vid made the process a breeze. Definitely better results with some Stoli vodka before...during...and after the whole process.
herrcobblermachen: So happy I found your page. Ive been refinishing stocks forever now and the brush never even occurred to me, and man did it save me loads of time! ive used sprays, soap and water, and brute sand paper, but this seriously shaved hours (days) off my prep time. Good video too. I know this vid is 2010, but well wishes to you and your new(ish) fam,
The Bomb Doctor: Wholy crap! There really is an evp on there!
Gman 1960: How many coats of the color did you put on and wipe off?? Rifle looks great. I have a M44 I want to restore. Thanks for the video.
Derek Ashby: You did a good job out looks really good
Mike Kass: nice hex' you got a good m91/30 there
StefanoM68: LOL a Vodka shot before starting job ! Perfect !!
Justin Johnson: Will you list the chemicals you used to remove all the Cosmo' and the stain as well I just got my mosin and I want to do the same thing
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)
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.
dalton vickers: great job, be proud of yourself, you did good for first time. Good lookin' mosin
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
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.
Gary39heli: Nice job !
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.
xzqzq: Nice job of refinishing the stock. How does the rifle shoot ?
