Current project: M44 Nagant Carbine
My current project is an Izhevsk M44 Mosin Nagant from 1946. The current modifications to it are: Freefloated barrel, Re-bored barrel, a fully milled and re-done bolt, shortened and grooved stock and soon to come will be a temporary rail with scope.

I agree! I went to posts pictures right after I wrote that last night and it seems that someone deleted all the ones off my laptop, no worries though, I have backups! Coming soon.

Here we go, a pic of the re-milled bolt and a good view of the staining.
Also a good but a little blurry pic of the bottom end, notice the tiger type striping on both pictures. Those are some 174gr FMJ's, always loaded. Wish I could get some hollow points for home defense, however.

The Mosin Nagant doesn't make a good home defense gun unless you live two or more houses away from the home you are trying to defend, & you have x-ray vision so you can see what you are shooting through all those walls. If you use the carbine & miss them with the bullit the muzzle blast will set them on fire.LOL:D

I was thinking the same thing about muzzle blast. It's not a good HD gun, but it's all I got right now :(

So you are looking for a HD gun next?

Well a good choice is a 12 gauge, preferably with more than 3 in the tube or clip.

I agree, I was actually informed a day after I posted this that my father bought me a 12GA break open shotgun for my birthday :D, I love turning 22.

Sweet, got any pics?

Melium 06-24-2011 06:01 PM

Havent yet, there's still two months until my birthday so I wont see it until then. He said it was an old catalog shotgun, so we'll see what i'm getting.
