My Mosin Nagant has all "original" parts as far as I can tell and I could swear that when I first bought the thing about five or six years ago that it had a two stage "sniper" trigger. I've tried it out lately and whatever was there years ago just isn't there any more. It sat unused for a couple of years since I spent some time in the great big kitty litter box (most people call it Iraq) then wanted to try out a couple other "toys" that I have in the safe.
I believe the Finnish Mosin Nagants have a 2 stage trigger...Its possible that you have a Finnish trigger and sear in your Mosin....but if it "went away" then I don't know. The Mosin Nagant Timney trigger is incredible. Its factory set at 3lbs and it has a Remington 700 style safety on the side of the receiver. I paid $81 for mine and it makes a world of difference if you're using yours as a hunting rifle.
