Mosin Nagant McGowen Replacement Barrels

The Mosin Nagant rifles have recently regained popularity. This is mostly due to the low cost of the rifle and the availibility of surplus ammunition.

We also have seen a recent surge in requests for barrels for the Mosin Nagant. We make a variety of barrel contours for this rifle. These can be seen at

Please note that the “pre-fit” for the Mosin Nagant requires a gunsmith to install to finish the extractor cut on the barrel. This can only be done after the barrel has been installed and aligned for the extractor, before it is then removed and reinstalled on the rifle.

If you are using “only” surplus ammunition for this rifle, we recommend that you use a .303/.311 bore/groove barrel as surplus does have some bullet diameter inconsistencies to it. If you are reloading, you will use the proper bore/groove dimension for your bullet. You will see under our Barrels page (Chrome Moly Barrels or Stainless Steel) that we list a .302/.310 bore/groove dimension for a 7.62×39. This is NOT always the case, again it depends upon the bullet diameter that you are using. It is better to error on the side of safety if you have any doubts.

We receive this question quite frequently. “Can you make a bull barrel for a Mosin Nagant?” The answer is YES. Any contour listed on our contour page can be done for the Mosin Nagant.
