JeepcoMJ Posted March 8, 2010 Share Posted March 8, 2010 my room mate just gave me his 1943 mosin nagant M44 (M91/30) for part of his rent, and I'm looking to sportsterize it (for lack of better word). thing is, I've got all of the paperwork on the gun dating back to 1943, so anything I do to it I want completely reversible. I already bought a scope mount for it...was going to build one, but for $30, I got one that goes straight in place of the original iron sites. Also got a sniper bolt for it on the way...the handle for that bends down 90 degrees so it opens with the scope on it. I've got (i think) a 5x60 scope that used to be on my dad's 30-06 cleveland, but he's since put the military scope back on that. Anyways, the last thing I'd like to do to it is a sporty, comfortable stock. I can't justify $300 on a stock for a $150 gun, so I'd like to make one. I just can't bring myself to modify the original one...so I'm going to take whatever original parts I remove off of the gun and put them in my gun cabinet to keep safe. basically the intent is to use it at the ranges when I can't hunt with it. It's quite a gun...I like it (alot) especially after putting around 40 rounds through it this weekend (and being dead nuts accurate, too!) any ideas?
