Haha nice. When I bought mine, I told my wife I was waiting for winter, dressing up in russian ww2 garb, and going into the woods to reenact Stalingrad. She rolled her eyes.

I was first offered 3 mosins in Kansas City for $100.00..that was for all 3...I said no at the time. But in the early 1970's I passed on an FN49 in 30.06 for $75.00. Those were the days.

Hello,

I support enjoying C&R rifles in any form, and a tasteful "Bubba" job is right up my ally.





Front view...


... and the rear.

The action is shimmed and the barrel corked:



I also made some cool things like a two-stage Finn M39-style trigger. Instead of pins, it has bearings












You can barely see a couple bearings under the sear.

This rifle is capable of this (or rather, I'm capable of doing this, with my 20/55 sight; I'm sure the rifle's much better):



I had to work for that group, but as long as I have a target I can see, I can do about that. I take coyotes at 200 yards. That's about as far as I can see, uncorrected.

That's my build. I know what these rifles can do and I love to see folks wring them out. Heck, a Finnish M39 had to have at least a 1.3MOA capability to be accepted into service!

Regards,

Josh

Mosins I believe are the last truly good deal in surplus firearms. 10 years ago it was Russian capture K98s and before that Enfields. One thing I avoid are the imports with the billboard import stamps on the receiver, these ruin a rifle for me. The older imports have much smaller import stamps and they are usually on the barrel. Here are a few of mine.

All 3 MNs are completely original, the M44 is a 1955 Polish.
The Polish examples are the nicest finished M44s out there.
