Pennsylvania Firearm Owners Association
HB2011 and HB1243 Updates

So far, there hasn't been a 2nd Consideration vote on either of these bills. WE NEED TO KEEP UP THE PRESSURE, and continue to contact our legislators - ask them to tell House leadership to bring these bills to a vote! Ask them to vote YES on HB2011, and NO on the Universal Background Check amendment. In addition, the FOAC is requesting support for an amendment proposed to HB1243 (Mental Health Records for Firearms Purchases) that, if passed, will allow HB1243 to restore firearm rights to those who have recovered from a mental illness.

Default Mosin Nagant - Cracked stock

So I just picked up a 91/30 Mosin a few weeks ago. Finally got all the cosmoline off and I realize the stock is cracked behind the recoil lug and near the rear action mounting screw.

I cleaned and decreased as best as I could and glued it up with Titebond II and clamped it overnight.

It seems okay, but I'm reading mixed things on keeping it from cracking again.

I've seen websites saying to use an epoxy to bed the action, using aluminum pilars on the mounting screws, shimming the recoil lug, and going as far as installing brass screws or pins across the stock.

What's everyones thoughts?


Don't worry, I cleaned it a lot more before gluing.

Crack runs parallel to the barrel, right? Not much chance that's anything more than cosmetic. That's a laminated stock and should have a transverse bolt passing right through that crack anyway.

Correct and correct, the bolt is flush with that square notch where theaction bolts in.

Aside from cosmetics, I wouldn't sweat it. Like, at all. In addition to the rear lug, that should have an extra bolt through the wrist that hardwood stocks lack.

If you choose to swap it out for another stock, PM me. Those plywood stocks are pretty good for accuracy and durability.

Allot of those stocks were put on as replacements, and MAY have been tightened up wrong or action may need some shimming. Go over to surplusrifleforum and CK their MN section stickies, you can learn allot there.

These are great guns for the money and most have decent accuracy, even with dark, worn bores and cheap surplus ammo. I have 34 Mosin Nagants of different flavors!

I have a few Nagants of different types and My advice would be to just shoot it and enjoy it. In my HMO the rifle and the surplus ammo are the best BANG for the buck you will find today..........
