Welcome to the site where the owners and members have had it with playing "nice" and being "inclusive" and "tolerant" of points of view that are destroying the fabric of what made this country great. The members here are sick and tired of politicians of all parties lying, deceiving, stealing, and pretending they are doing it all for the good of the country while selling out to special interests who have the set goal of destroying this country. We have had enough of career politicians who use their office only for personal gain, and who refuse to listen to the people who put them in office. The membership is no longer part of the silent majority who play nice and get along while getting screwed by anyone with a loud voice and an agenda. We will no longer allow anyone to piss down our back and tell us it's raining. And we like guns too.

No Commies How many coils?

Got a sticky wartime Mosin bolt that's harder than the times of '29 to manipulate. Checked all interfacing surfaces for smoothness and they're slicker than a televangelist talking little old ladies out of their savings. Chamber is clean as CIA no head stamp ammo. That leaves trimming the ridiculously over strength spring.

I've heard from one half to two coils. Has anyone on here used that method?

If so, does it work and how much did you remove?

Check the fitment of the connecting rod to the lug is rides in. It should be a fairly close fit. Also, I have lapped the locking lug to receiver surfaces to great success. One more thing, grease on the locking lugs works wonders, too. I have never cut coils from springs, as that will induce other problems.

Edit: Some lacquer coated cases/dirty chamber will cause said manipulation problems. A 20ga brass/bronze shotgun brush wrapped with extra fine steel wool and a slathering of Hoppe's No.9, spun with a variable speed drill, will clean the pressed in crap out of these chambers. This has done well for me...

Thank you.

I put a heavier spring in the Mauser. Never cut a spring before, didnít really want to.

I've put a heavier spring in a couple Mausers, too, for when I shoot that 1950's Yugo ammo and Turkish ammo.

Sir you just stated a procedure I've used for many years.
Well worth repeating from time to time.
Chamber cleaning, polishing does wonders.
Don't forget the dental picks and extra soaking.
Hot water with Dawn liquid detergent till the parts are so hot you can't hold them.
This doesn't change any metallurgical properties,just means it's hot.
Then a light lubricant.

DON'T forget using a toothpick to dig extraneous gunk out of the hidden corners.
