Has anyone had trouble using an Elby sight tool on their M44 carbine?

I ordered a sight tool and haven't been able to line up the tool to the front sight. I don't know if it's the folding bayonet impeding the tool alignment, or if I just ordered the wrong product.

I know it isn't this sub's specialty, but I need advice on a 1895 Nagant

An old man needs to offload guns and I am interested in his 1895 in 7.62x38. Does anybody have an idea of what to look for to judge pricing? I see some gunbroker sales for $600, I have $600 I'm going to take and am wondering how much more or less is viable. Thank you in advance.

Info request.

What do I have and what is it worth? I want to get rid of it for something more modern. Got this gun for $60. All matching numbers all around, no bayonet.

Finally snagged an M44

$450 out the door at a recent gun show. Is it a great deal? Probably not. However, I have been wanting one for a few years now and I couldnt say no, especially since the first Mosin I bought was a bust. At least this one puts holes in paper lol

New Type 53

My first Mosin variant: A Norinco Type 53

I paid $340 for it. The bolt is smooth, and the recoil really wasn't bad. I've heard a lot of people complain about the quality of these, but I love mine. It's in between my Spanish 1893 Mauser on the high end and my Savage Model 340 in 30-30 on the low end in terms of bolt smoothness.

What's the rarity of M38 non import marked?

I'm looking for an M38 but preferably not import marked or at least a barrel marking. What's the rarity of such examples?

7.62x54r reloading

Looking to see if anyone here has the moulds for .315-.316 cast bullets. Would also like to get some nice brass casings (not steel/ copper washed steel) if anyone got some they have saved. I’d be willing to buy/ pay for shipping if anyone has some bullets or casings. I Would like to be able to try and buy a few cast bullets off someone for reloading if they have them before purchasing the molds for myself. Slugged my barrel to .315”. Ultimately looking to get tighter groupings out of the rifle for deer / pig hunting this year. All standard 7.62x54r measures to typically .311-.312 which is far too small of a bullet for most of our certified trash rods haha.

where does one find stripper clips in europe?

I've searched ebay and the only european seller ended being 30 euros for 2 clips...

All the US shops don't ship to the Netherlands and if they do, shipping is way too expensive for some clips.

Unlocking bolt issue

I have 1938 mosin in good condition and shoots great. The bolt cycles very nice and smooth but once every basically 7 rounds, it like to not be smooth. After firing I can only turn the bolt up to point before its just wall of resistance and i end up having to really smack it. Any idea what this could be? I was shooting original noncorrosive russian ammo, could that maybe be a reason why?

M91/2? Finn Mosin Rear Sight Repair

The slider on the rear sight is loose. Only one button will lock on each sight setting making the whole assembly wobble and throw off zero. Any ideas? I think I found a site to order a replacement though I'm not sure it's legit. I'm having a hard time finding out how to disassemble the slider. I already have the leaf off the gun I just need to fix the slider. Any advice greatly appreciated.
