Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

If I may ask, what makes this rifle a "5 Line?"
The "Five Line" refers literally to five lines of logo information on the barrel shank. A “line” is a unit of measure equal to 1/10th of an inch.

BEST SAID by ss- lord in a lower post :dance: :dance: Talk about clarity of thought! He's got to be a writer or should be.
The phrase " 5 line Tula" is a term made up by U.S. collectors referring to the 5 lines of text stamped on the barrels of Tula made M91's and Dragoons made between 1920 and 1929. it has nothing to do with the Russian term "three line rifle" which was a bore diameter measurement meaning 3 tenths of a inch or .30 cal.

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.

Thank you for the clarification. I recently finished the book, "Lady Death, The Memoirs of Stalin's Sniper" by Lyudmila Pavlichenko herself. (Holder of the Soviet Union's highest kill count by a female sniper). She talks at length about the Mosin Nagant sniper rifle and refers to it exclusively as a "3-Line." So when I saw "5-line" written here, I got confused. Sorry, still learning.

5 lines of text between the Tula star and the 1928 date.
