Another sad tale here, so perhaps just enjoy it as she is - in the memory of Great Gramps.

From 2 standpoints, the short ans is "No" & here's why:
1) Collectibility. Mods of this type are permanent & frequently get slapped w/ a "Bubba" handle.
2) Integrity/Safety. The native metallurgy has been irrevocably altered to an unsafe (softened) condition by welding. Firing this rig could become a face-altering proposition.

Some folks may jump-in here & claim that it might be re-heat treated after normalizing.
As always, YMMV.

..... but what is the difference between this reciever and a mosin nagant ex sniper that has had the screws and pins ground off and then welded? Would the integrity of the mosin ex sniper not be altered as well? Not trying to be a smart ass, just curious.
No physical diff - both are seriously compromised.

Now a ?, dear fellow:
"What is one's face worth?"
