It is a Redfield Palma sight, micrometer adjustable, mounted on the rear receiver wall. The caliber is 50 Alaskan. It was a project I had started back in 2003.

Very nice job. That's a piece of pride you got there. Wood is spectacular. Did that wood cost an arm and a leg?

It was a presentation grade piece of claro walnut I got from Richard's Micro-Fit back in '03...a bit spendy at the time, but cheap now, considering.

it may just be me, but I think you butchered it. they look better with original wood stocks and that. its not bad if you put a scope on it, just don't D&T that rifle. im somewhat of a collector of MNs and it looks better with original everything. they are meant to be a piece of history.

This rifle was not a piece of history, it was a piece of scrap. It had a junk barrel, missing handguard, cracked buttstock, and one missing barrel band. It is not in the original caliber now, and is a completely different rifle now. If it was serviceable, I never would have used the action.

As for originals, I have M91's, dragoons, M91/30's, M91/59's, M44's, M38's...and that's just Russians. My real passion is for the rifles of my ancestral homeland, Finland.

Well, if you feel like putting $300-$400 (used barrel, gunsmith labor to install, used stock/handguard/barrel bands, etc.) or so into returning a $100 rifle (in good condition) into usable shape, be my guest. If it was a non-import marked M91 or something that they didn't make 25 MILLION RIFLES of, I would have been more interested in saving it.

BTW, there is nothing "bubba" about that rifle.

Default My Mosins

1934 Tula







1956 T53







I refinished both of the stocks, the 34 getting stripped, stained, and 3 coats of Tom's 1/3 wax. The T53 got a complete sanding, stain, 4 coats of tru-oil, and 2 coats of feed-n-wax, I hit the bolt with the buffing wheel and the rest of the metal got a good coat of oil. I haven't had an opportunity to fire the 34 yet but my 11 year old absolutely loves shooting the T53!

Thanks,

Cliff

so in the same aspect.. is redoing a chevelle the same thing? or an old firebird?

that is your opinion in which few share, and to admit i think i am biggest at what you call butchering, i call making something alot more fun to shoot,

if you never shot a BA rifle with a pistol grip.. well in my Opinion its right up there with my *****.

Madison, this is one of my favorite Centerfold pictures of the 91/30. Bravo !
I'm going to do the same thing with my 1938 Tula. I'll keep the 43 Izzy completely authentic for now.

Good for you ! Enjoy I hope it shoots well.

Here are my 3. They are nothing special but as the old saying goes, "There are many like them but these ones are mine!" I picked up all 3 from Calguns members and all of them were still packed in grease when I got them and came with all the accoutrements. One had been fired a few times by the original owner with a lot of cosmoline still on the gun (Not in the barrel or action though) and I was told it shot fine (Although I wouldn't do that!). The other 2 were caked and I spent hours degreasing them.

All 3 are 1942 - 1943 rounded receiver Izhevsks with matching# and great stocks (One has some arsenal repairs that I didn't even notice until I cleaned the gun up) The other two are perfect.

By the way, these guns are SHOOTERS! I underestimated how much FUN they are to shoot as well as being relatively easy on the wallet. And they are not ugly to me at all. I love the way they look and they shoulder and point very naturally.

My very first Mosin. I already know this will not be my last, already feeling the bug for more. It's a 1932 Tula Hex 91/30, she is called Oksana
Took about 3 weeks to refinish the stock. Started with denatured alcohol because I wanted to keep all the markings. Then finished with about 20+ coats of formby's tung oil finish low gloss.
This is how it looked when I first bought it.

The finished product

About $140 altogether when you add shipping to the equation. Still, for 880 rounds of 54R, that's a good price

Sprung this from the reeducation center today, Komrads. Went straight to P2K & put about 40 rounds through it. My shoulder has a couple of faint bruises already.

Very nice MJ! Is it a Tula or an Izhevsk? Button bands? I have a 1934 Finn capture Izhevsk with the transitional front sight and button bands. Dont see these often at all.

Default Photobombed SCW pic w/ cat

I got this SCW in a sporter stock about eight years ago for uber cheap. I'd since been searching for a 1936 stock for it. I found one.

Two things to note: first, the wretched cat (Lula) who worked her way into this long-exposure pic, and, second, the blade front sight on this. It has the Made in USSR stamp on the receiver. It's an Izhevsk 1936 with no import marks.
