Sadly, I don't have a Bubba'ed Mosin, but that is going to change.:43:

Sadly, I don't have a Bubba'ed Mosin, but that is going to change.:43:

This is my first m44. I love this one sooo much, but she could really couldn't hit theside of a barn at 50yd.

So I set out to do a little bit of glass bedding . . . then a little pillar bedding . . . followed by a little trigger smoothing (because she had a 12lb pull) now. 4 1/2lb . . . her stock was smashed at the muzzle with a nasty, beat up crown . . . now a 17" barrel . . . I was thinking, after she was able to shoot a 1 1/2" group I would get a scope for her, so I bent her bolt handle down. I'm not a very tall person so I shortened the stock a couple of inches and recontoured a bit to fit my palm. I have plans to mod the trigger to shorten pull, too . . .

I know this isn't going to meet the approval of purists, but I really love her for shooting . . . I love my other Mosins as they shoot well and are very pretty and have historical value . . . but I love working on this one . . . I love to take her to the range . . . I love to hold her while I watch tv . . . some of you know what I mean . . .

Just working on my sporter/scout M44... yeah, it was a rustbucket when I bought it, so why not? And, yes, the trigger cost more than the gun.

Almost done with an m44. It was a rescue situation. The action barrel sights and bayo were pretty mint, but some tard took some steel straps, screws, two rolls of electrical tape and some three pieces of assorted stock wood.... well you get the picture.... I had to be revived. An nice original stock couldn't be found so its been dropped into an ATI. Post pics when I have afinished piece.

I don't have this anymore, but it was a beat rusty heap when I got it for $50.
Cut it down to 22" sandblasted it refinished it, and added open sights from a Rem 700.
Turned into a pretty nice shooter.

There's nothing wrong with the ATI stock, I like mine, it's more comfortable than the original and looks a thousand times better IMO.

Bubba1 with AK74 muzzle brake, 3 pound trigger, and home made stock.

Bubba2 with AK74 brake, ATI stock, 3 pound trigger, and bipod.
http://i40.photobucket.com/albums/e237/slomofo562/Guns/m44muzzlebrake.jpg


This one on the left is going to be Bubba 3, but right now it doesn't have a barrel attached to it:

All my bubbas are completely reversible and the first one is a matching numbers gun, but the others aren't.

I have one I won at Sacramento's

I don't have pictures of it and the rifle isn't with me but I'll get around to posting some sooner or later. They had an article on building it but surplusrifle's main site is down and now only the forum exists.

1944 Izzy no numbers matching. ATI stock free floated, 22" barrel sanded to remove chatter marks, shooters ridge bipod, tri-rail (most stable IMHO, not best looking), 2-7x LER scope, and painted with matte black ceramic flameproof paint.

Hide your eyes.......This almost hurts to look at.......But who ever was the torturer of this rifle did do a pretty good job. It was probably a gunsmith class project rifle. The brown and white butt stock length adjusters are really hideous.

I did. however I sold it a few months ago. The general consensuses is the "deer head" Mosin's are gunsmith school rifles where students were given an assignment to refinish, customize and engrave as a project.

When I bought it, it couldn't hit better than an 8" group @50yards (damaged sights). Now it shoots pretty darn good @100 (if you ignore that one little guy):

The "best" way? use a gunsmith. =D Second best way? A hacksaw and one of these: http://www.midwayusa.com/product/684575/ptg-11-degree-muzzle-crown-facing-tool-with-30-caliber-and-up-4-pilot-set-300-312-330-366

I used a hacksaw, a file and a right angle tool. 3 days with the file, sitting in front of the TV. file file file file test. file file file file test. file file file file test. Then use 100 grit+ sandpaper to take off the tool marks and a brass screw head in a power drill to complete the crown. So not the way you're supposed to do it, but it worked for me.

Nice. How long did it take you to finish the magazine project?Here's a project I just finished
My 10 round SHTF rifle.
It's a 1938 Tula Mosin Nagant retrofitted with an Archangel 10 round magazine.

Added a recoil pad and double ghost rings sights to my '38. A real fire-breather.

I know there are few out there!

Let's see some extreme Bubba Mosin Rifles!

Sadly, I don't have a Bubba'ed Mosin, but that is going to change.:43:

Kiddo!!!!!!!! Your back. I don't have pictures of it right now but. One of mine is in an Archangel stock. Good seeing you post.

Almost finished! Just gotta have a gunsmith thread and install my custom muzzle brake. I love my M9130!

Here's a picture of mine. I think it was probably done in the 1950's or so. It's the only picture I have of it, just trying to decide what to do with it. I'm not sure if the barrel was cut down or not and still have to see if it's ok to shoot. It's missing the original butt stock plate. It's a 1923 Tula and when they installed the rear "V" sight they drilled and taped right over the year marketing. Trying to figure out how to either mount an original rear sight or an aftermarket or I just might sell it and buy an all original one.

Dan if you end up in the Sac area I can check headspace on it for you. I was gifted a couple of sporters similar to yours. They were done in the sixties. One of them is a great shooter and an awesome truck gun. Looks like someone went the extra mile and put some nice irons on yours. Shoot it for groups, who knows it could be a diamond in the rough.

BTW it looks like the original sight base has been milled off. So you might be stuck with the sights you have now. I also have an extra buttplate you can have. Let me know if you can pay a visit.

Here's mine:

why keep the rear sight when there is no front sight? Have noticed this on a few of them, cut down barrel with rear sight still mounted.

I think some people just dont think about it. you can use it as a rudimentary aiming device if the optic should fail; it actually works quite well for that.

If you look at my pics above, mine is still on. I have since removed it and duracoated the bolt handle black....

Here is another one of mine. Some Finnish Bubba made it into a gun for the 1976 Olympics. Bubba did a REALLY GOOD JOB !! It can shoot quarter size groups @ 300 yards....and I suck.
