Well either way from what I've been reading I think ill have to cut the reciever lengthen it because the .338 is a magnum round. Ill have to rebarrel it because the mosin is only 7.62 which is roughly a .308. The only easy part about the whole process will be that the bolt has interchangeable heads so you can adjust for head space. Idk it seems like a huge undertaking for my gunsmithing skills but hey it never hurts to try it.

There ya go. That will be a fun one. I was thinking about trying to machine a frame and slide for the 1911. I have all the prints for it just need to sit down and write the programs.

Yeah I found that company when I was searching for better prices on 80% lowers. I didn't happen to see what you mentioned though. If you get a chance post a link please. Thanks
