Before I get attacked by purists (I am one too) I will not be modifying an original mosin. I have found A place that sells pieces of mosins for pretty cheap. I want to make a custom stock with a pistol grip and then bend the bolt and install a scope as well as try to fabricate some sort of removable 10 rd. magazine. if I cant do the magazine then ill just stick with the original style. any thoughts, questions, comments, concerns?
