View Full Version : My Frankenstein Bubb'ed Mosin

Disclaimer: No valuable Mosin was destroyed creating this Frankenstein bubba Mosin.
This was a Mosin in bad condition, the bore was a sewer pipe from the muzzle down 8" or so. Mis-matched everything. Headspace is good, and the remaining bore has strong riflings and a frosted bore. All and all, nothing lost value wise.

I had everything on hand except the steel tubing. $16 + tax.
All joints and butted pieces welded.

I have shot this, and it put 10 shots on a paper plate @ 200 yds.
I've decided to use this on my coyote hunts.

I wanted to do something different with this Mosin, and here is what I did.

- The 'stock' is made from 1/2" steel tubing.
- The butt stock is an AK Romy.
- The forward grip is an AMD-65, the rear is a TAPCO SAW AK grip.
- Bipod made from same tubing and part of an AR detachable rear sight. Bipod swivels 30 degrees.
- 1/2" tubing was used for the full length scope rail, the front sight is adjustable for elevation. (Vertical tubing w/3/8" solid steel stock slides inside the 1/2" tubing and welded to Mosin f. sight and set screw)
- Weaver bases and Weaver double rings
- 16.5" barrel cut, and crowned and threaded 14-1 LH.
- AMD-65 muzzle break.
- Turned down bolt handle made from an AK gas piston.
- Rear sight leaf was moved rearward for scope bell clearance using the Mosin leaf.
- Trigger and sear polished. Set screw used to relieve trigger pull and reduce trigger travel.
- Tasco 3x9 scope.
- Krylon flat camo paint

Scope removed to use open sights.

I have no words to describe this. It's like a mother looking at her new born baby and seeing it's the most ugly baby she's ever seen. I'm disgusted, but at the same time, I love it. I don't know how to feel... I think I might need counseling.

Meh. It ain't a bubba job if you are saving it from the trash heap. No harm, no foul in my book. It looks... interesting... I like the camo job too. :)

Did you really build it in 2000 or is the date wrong on your camera?

It is interesting, I admire your creative vision.

The solution to that is not to click on any posts that have 'bubba' in the header.

Looks like a very well spent $100 lots of fun. Any pics of your trigger set screws locations?

btw, the Mosin was $40 OTD 4 years ago.
All the other stuff was just laying around.

Here's a pic of the set screw location.

Cheek weld looks like it leave something to be desired. But then again, you might not want that thing touching your face.

In all seriousness, I'm impressed. Especially if it shoots

You've never shot a rifle with a wood butt stock? Cheek weld on the stock is perfect for me. That's what matters, correct?

Thanks for the positive comment. And yes, it shoots very well.

It was never my intention to make this pretty. Ugly, yes it is.
Opinions other than mine do not phase me in the least. Everyone has one.

I made it to use in the field coyote hunting. For that purpose, it fills my needs.

Thanks to those who like it.

I will have to say that it is one of the most interesting bubba's I have seen to date, but never the less still a crying shame to screw up a Mosin like that.

You're funny. I mean that it hardly looks like you are getting your head down on that gun for a solid lock up. If you can do it heads up, then that's cool.

The looks aren't for me, but that doesn't matter!

I like it because you did it yourself and it works for you. That's what matters. I'm impressed:thumbsup:

I didn't mean to come off as a smart a**, but it's a perfect, solid cheek weld for me. That was the most important aspect. I've shot a few scoped guns that a check weld was impossible to obtain.

I have to disagree with the comments made about ruining a perfectly good, historical Mosin. The gun was trashed, zero matching #s, broken stock, and no way to enjoy or shoot it in the condition it was in. I wanted a shooter that I could enjoy and use.
The trash heap was the only other alternative. No way that was going to happen as long as I could make it usable and shootable.

As long as it shoots good - that's all that matters. I think it's ugly yet cool at the same time.

Just want to point out, whether or not the numbers are matching isn't a huge concern among M/N collectors. There are so few original matching M/Ns out there that mis matched numbers aren't anywhere near as big of a deal to a M/N collector as it would be to a collector of virtually any other surplus rifle. Of course, if you do happen to stumble across an orginal matching M/N, it's worth some money, but they are like finding a needle in a haystack.

i think it's neat, kudos for not only the creativity, but the ability to put it all together. my gunsmithing skills don't go nearly as far. i'm slowly building a mosin sporter off a trashed barrelled action i got. it won't look like this but i'm going for sinister. nicely done sir.
