It's little discoveries like a Remington bolt body on my Finnish rifle that make me the saddest about Bubba's deprivations on milsurp rifles.
Six million Izhevsk bolts out there and someone has butchered a New England Westinghouse one. You know they did.
While many Mosin Nagants are actually "just another Mosin" there are some that are emphatically not.
Guns made by Remington, New England Westinghouse or Chatterault are not common because they are oldest and because they were made in the smallest numbers. Grinding off sights and drilling for scopes on such collectables is WRONG.
And Bubba don't care.
