    mosin blasphemy

    yea that's right. i chopped up a mosin. go ahead. troll me....it was a 43 izhevsk. super common. i like projects.

    i chopped, stripped, refinished, and hollowed out the stock. got it to 28 ounces, a reduction of about 1.5 lbs, and about half a pound lighter than the monte carlo aftermarket stock. next i did a trigger job. travel is now about 1/4", instead of 5/8", and about 2 lbs. finally i chopped the barrel down to 22", recrowned it, and removed the iron sights. now i just need to order a scope. total rifle weight is now 7.3 lbs. a reduction of about 3.5 lbs.

    the idea here was to make a sporter deer rifle for under $200. i have $90 in the gun, and $.10 in the trigger job so far. i had the stain and varnish already. i did the re crown with a 6 flute 45 degree countersink i had, and a jig i made up. however if the bore is not perpendicular to the barrel (which is sometimes the case in mosins), i will have to buy a proper crowning tool. that will run about $70 from brownells.

    i am gonna buy another one or possibly two. one to keep stock. and i think one to put a pistol handle and 16" barrel on...to make fireballs.

    no i didn't actually. the only ammo around here is milsurp cans anyways so it would not have been a decent measure of accuracy. i will do a range report when i get a scope and some decent ammo.

    I applaud your decision to chop up something so cheap and common. Further, I applaud your intention of getting 2 more and keeping one of them stock. The whole point of buying these things is to enjoy them right? Enjoy your outrageously cheap deer rifle, good sir, and I hope it nets you plenty of tasty venison.

    I just bought my first 91/30 a month ago. It's in great condition and I think i will keep it stock. I plan on buying another as a project to play with and would like to add a m44 to the collection as well. Your rifle looks nice, I'm looking forward to the range report.

    this is a great site.

    7.62x54r.net

    there is a identification tool there. i highly recommend finding out what you have, and where it was manufactured before chopping it up. like i said. i ended up with the most common model, so it was no biggie to alter it.

    If the bore IS perpendicular to the barrel, you've got one weird-ass rifle!!!

    How do you plan to mount your scope? Drilling and tapping a Mosin Nagant split receiver is difficult and you will need a bent bolt as opposed to the original straight bolt if you go with the ATI style mount. You may be better off installing a PU mount and scope which is how the Russians mounted scopes to the MN.

    The other option would have been a scout type mount and EER scope.

    That's the first time I have EVER seen anyone capable of making a Mosin even uglier than the original. But I'm reminded that some people think the Irish Wolfhound is ugly, until they remember that there are NO LONGER any wolves...in Ireland!

    We have a GREAT hobby, and are free to enjoy & express it in ANY WAY WE PLEASE. Nice Work!
