    Figured I'd show off a couple M91/30 Mosin Nagants I just picked up recently. One of them is a hex receiver and the other is a Finn capture. The Finn Capture has some pitting and rust on the barrel near the front sight. Any idea on whether I should try to fix/restore it? I've built AKs from parts kits before but this is a bit different. Part of me wants to just leave it as is due to the history, but I'd rather the pitting and rusting not spread and get worse.

    I wouldn't fix it, adds to the "history ", I would oil it up and enjoy it.

    or shoot the snot out of it, roll around in mud and permafrost to make it fell like home....

    Rust is of the devil. Get rid of it.
