I have a 1933 Mosin with the hexagon reciever. I bought it off of Armslist.com for $125. They usually go for at least twice that. I have a bad shoulder but will not give up my guns and shooting. I went with the Archangel stock so I could use detachable magazines and be much more comfortable shooting because everyone knows that Mosins kick like a mule. Yes, the Archangel stock is more expensive than my rifle. I am not one to worry about the cost, but more about comfort, accuracy and having something a little different than Joe Shmoe. This looks similar to mine. I'm just waiting to get my bolt back and to get the duracoat done. I'm either going to do tiger stripes or skulls. imageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1396454550.320207.jpgimageuploadedbyfirearms-talk1396454567.889382.jpg

Well i think that modernizing your nagant will help with the recoil. I have a 91-30 as well and I'm planning on getting a arc angel stock I'm. 5'4" and that gun beats the heck out of me but i loooooooove it !!! You can always change it back if you want.

You can find a recoil pad on ebay under $15 shipped to your doorstep.

If you want a gun with no recoil get a 5.56x45. Anything that shoots a 203 gr SP at 2,400 fps is going to have a little recoil.

I bought my first Kar 98 Mauser, in excellent plus (almost mint) condition for $15. Today, if you can find one in that condition, they will bring upward of $750.
I agree, there are sporterized MN 91's out there if you want a sporterized one. I'd keep it original.

There are barreled actions available. If you want to build or modify a MN, why not start there? Matching numbers do not mean anything on a Bubba Nagant. From everything I've heard, The arc Angel doesn't really reduce recoil any way, and if they fit like the ATI Monte Carlo They aren't worth the trouble. Speaking from experience, if you want to build a Mosin to have a more modern looking rifle that has all the bells and whistles, it will cost twice as much as a new Axis and not near the accuracy. I have one I did that is 100% reversible for $625 but it is only marginally better than its pedigree. It was fun to do but don't expect a cheap way to have a modern rifle.

Default Luv dem Mosins

Have several including one Hex. Two were "bubba'd" when purchased but the shoot well with lighter loads. Good advice on buying a current production rifle for hunting. Have a 77 Ruger in '06 that is a tack driver. Stainless w/composite stock under a Bushnell 3X9. You will not find a better rifle for the money. Have a 25-06 that I shoot now. Have a torn rotator cuff that is healing nicely and the heavy barreled Mauser build does not hurt it. There are some sporterized Mausers/Mosins/etc out there on the shelves.

For the recoil sensitive reloading is often the answer. I bought 3 boxes of the reloadable brass ammo. I use several different loads using several different bullets. Just because the Mosin can shoot shoulder shattering ammo doesn't mean it has to. You can safely load it down quite a bit.

The Archangel stock is very nice. The Mosin is a very accurate rifle. Some say this or that. I feel it is just there preference. Yes, it may be expensive to set up a Mosin with all the bells and whistles, but if you set up any rifle like that it will cost you a few paychecks. I stand behind the Mosin. I also stand behind many other rifles. You have to consider all of these rifle companies change this or that to make it more accurate. Mosin hasn't changed in over 100 years. It's a sniper rifle plain and simple
