I have a tikka 1943, tang markings are tula hammer (pre 1928) (basically very rare)
It's basically new it was " un issued"
Do you think it would be a good idea to finnish up the stock (it's post-war) with some tru-oil and make it look real nice, and sand down the bolt a little bit.

It's the most rough bolt I have ever experienced in my years of handling and seeing mosins, I don't want to mirror polish, just get it to good smooth working condition with out trying to make it look flashy and just ugly.

Also maybe adding a duracoat clear over the parts to make it last (optional) Do you think this project is a good idea or very bad, I really really need opinions. If you're 50-50% on the idea what are good ideas and what are the bad ideas

If its a rare firearm then I would just get the action working well. I finially found a Russian M44 that I was looking for and around my area they are getting harder to find. The shorter Mosins are the rifle to get it seems and are going up in price. Here is a site to help with your M39
