Hey /k/, nogunz here. However, I'm not looking for a gun for myself, but one for a family member's birthday. Basically, I found a Mosin Nagant for $50 in a private sale, but the seller says that it's in good shape, but needs to either have a new stock or be fitted to the current one. But my family member wanted to get an entirely different stock than the usual Mosin one anyway (ruining a historical artifact, right?!) So my questions are:
1) What could lead the gun to not be fitted to the stock? Could there be something wrong with the gun itself?
2) Would this be a good candidate to put a new (and presumably expensive, don't remember the details) stock on?
Thanks for tolerating an outsider.

/r9k/ gave me nothing, and I was told you folks are more knowledgeable in this area.
I'm considering the military. Navy in particular.
I'm currently trying to figure out what to do with my life, like most people my age (21). I want to be a writer/filmmaker, but every path in that direction has not really suited me. I've tried college, vocational school, self-study. I have a steady part time job that pays well while I live at home. By rights my life is not that bad right now.
But I'm an ambitious motherfucker. I want and need to do more. The main things I want in life are to travel and to make enough money to do so as I like. Be it backpacking and hostels or business meetings and 4-star hotels.
And I want it to have meaning. I don't want to be some hipster fuck with a DSLR who thinks his mumbley movies about yuppie problems will change the world.
So, after hearing things from different individuals, I looked up the Navy's career paths, and they havea News Media department, where you operate video equipment, film things around the world, handle news assingments. I've never been one for hardcore journalism and I know their marketing strategies must be taken with ten grains of salt.
But it would provide me with money, travel, and experience in the audio-visual tech field. So it's a viable option.
Can any military bros here help me out? It looks very beneficial but the only con I see is signing away four years of life.
Is it all it is cracked up to be on the site?
Do you get valuable knowledge and training in your field of choice?
Do you get to travel around the world?
P.S. I won't have any problem with the Asvab, I intend to study hard and put a year of foreign language under my belt before enlisting if I take this road.
