    Mosin Nagant Conversion : Promag Archangel

    As much as I wanted to like my Mosin Nagant, I had to modernize it.




    Much of the work was just removing the internals of the Mosin, and removing the pins from the leaf sights. Everything else was pretty much a drop in evolution.

    Pro Mag Archangel body, Texas Precision Muzzle Break, Timney trigger, Brass Stacker Rail, and a long eye relief UTG scope with lighted reticle.

    The muzzle break takes the bite out of the recoil.

    The Timney trigger makes a world of difference in feel of the trigger.

    The Brass Stacker doesn't require a rifle to be drilled and tapped, nor does it require a bent bolt.

    I needed about 9-10" of eye relief given the forward position of the scope.

    Finally completed. I have a bipod coming in tomorrow.

    Well ... that's sorta like turning a sow's ear into a silk purse.

    If a cartridge could be found that splits the difference between .308 Winchester and .30-06 then the 7.62 X 54 R is it, and that's a good place to be.

    That stock ought to mitigate the effects of recoil all by itself as it has much less drop than the original military stock.

    Glad you're getting a bipod...that looks way front heavy. Unless it's just the pics?

    Also, does your hand smack the scope when working the bolt handle?
    The number of people killed because they didn't have "enough gun" is dwarfed by those who had none at all.

    Frankly this I am ok with ..I normally hate "moderizing " "sportizering " classic guns but as little permatent damge is done and org parts are kept I say looks ok

    You going to get some 10 round mags also?
