Just because you can paint, there is no value in putting a mustache on the Mona Lisa.
You can continue to preserve history while I make my own. I prefer to challenge myself with new projects

Better watch out you are on the edge of making one of those evil black assault guns. LOL

I like it. Is that a custom barrel? Nice bolt handle. I did a custom Mosin with an ATI stock that I modified to fit me.

Stock barrel just shortened it about 7" and re crowned. Bolt handle is a piece of stainless I turned on the lathe and threaded then bent in a vise

MachineHead: I don't have access to a lather, is there any way you could make something similar from regular steel and sell just a knob?

Here's my Mosin. I don't like the knob but the curve of the handle works nice with my arthritis.

I'll get a pic of the other side when I get home. The handle comes down right in front of the trigger guard.

I could make a knob or an entire handle. Instead of the ball what shape are you looking for

MachineHead: I guess I'm thinking 3/4" round bar about an inch long with a taper on top and bottom with the top tapering down to a half inch. Some groves or knurling would be nice. I'll see if I can find some graph paper and draw it out but I think you probably get the idea.
