Bolt Polishing, rear sight removal.
I am currently working on my mosin nagant m91/30 and I wanted some advice. I would like to polish all of the visable surfaces on my mosin's bolt, but am unsure as to what the best way to do this would be and Im afraid that if I just go at it with sand paper that I might hurt it. Im really going for that brand new bolt look, or if anyone knows of a company that makes and sells new mosin bolts I would appreciate that as well.
Secondly, I am attempting to remove the rear sight on my mosin so that I can put a scope mount on it, but the pins have been hammered flat, and I was wondering if anyone knew if it would be possible to drill this without a drill press because I dont have one and dont wish to pay to have it done.
I would appreciate any help I can get on this, as I have already removed the sight arm on the rear sight of the mosin so I doubt the iron sights are any good now that the leaf spring has been removed.
