Head Spacing A Mosin Nagant After Fixing A Broken Bolt




What do you think about this video?

bill65761: I'm getting ready to buy a carton of 5 from ClassicFirearms.com, so I bought the three piece set. The individual gauges are $20 each, $35 for any two and $50 for the full monty. I'm a "full monty" sort of guy, so I bought all three. They are made of 4140, milled, turned, drilled, dimpled, hardened and ground ... should be close (enough) to perfect. I like that they don't require any disassembly of the bolt to use and so can be used to check a rifle before purchasing. (If the seller has any objections, chalk it up as a "fail" and keep steppin').

PleksiHed1959 damo: 54r.good video.cheers.

Blaine Bugaski: I would assume that head space issues are not very common. Just replacing the piece you did should have no effect. You are more likely to run into a firing pin that isn't adjusted properly and will pop the primers.

No Quarter Compound: head spacing issues are usually found the the rifle has been refitted with a bolt from another rifle. If the numbers all match , should be good to go

stefpote: Well it's all jolly nice... But what should I do if it closes on the no-go gauge?

Tripp426: Thanks for this video. Very informative and I really like that you added some footage of shooting the rifle afterward. I recently picked up my first Mosin, a 1942 M91/30 and I've been told by a couple guys that if all the parts match then headspace definitely won't be an issue but I ordered a no-go gauge from Okie just to be sure.
