Got a Mosin Nagant after I saw this poor baby at the Gun Cellar in Alabama
Someone tried to sportorize it...and most of the stock is missing.
It's an m44...and the bayonet has been sawn off
Cost me 40 bucks so I said screw it.
I'm thinking about finding a polymer stock since the wood is basically crap now....and turning it into a scout rifle replacing the iron sights...or what do you guys suggest?
Tula Russian model of 1945
Even has the communist logo on it as well as a bunch of other symbols
Some T looking letter then a W looking thing...followed by 6794
What do you think? Smart buy?
Also I think someone ducked taped something to the barrel...seems like they were trying to offset the weight to make the recoil lesser....or...hell in some places...it looks like they put flashlights and laser sights on it.
It's dirty.....and hell It might not be worth a damn to shoot...but for 40 bucks I'll take it and clean it up real good....cycles like a dream....and the bore looks good as far as I know maybe not cleaned though...the bolt is really brown on the knob...but I'm thinking I'll buy a new full bolt for this later on in life.
