Not good photos, but here's the BYF45 made Mauser that my Grandfather owned. Not sure where my Granddad picked this up (he was in WWII in Europe) but I don't think he brought home the original rifle. My dad did say my Granddad fitted the stock and adjustable rear sight.

Do what you want. I dont have any problem sporterizing a Mosin from Big5.

Here is my French MAS 36 Golden State Arms Santa Fe Model 49 (Cal. 7.5x54mm). These were imported by Golden State Arms of Pasadena in the 50's and 60's and sporterised by them. I bought it because I just thought it was a good looking rifle. Golden State Arms had an interesting local history and here is more info for those interested: http://www.m1carbinesinc.com/carbine_santafe.html

I particularly liked the part about how one of the owners of GSA, Seymour Ziebert (a Jew), was killed in a hunting accident in Spain, under suspicious circumstances, and that it was suggested that Ziebert may have met his end because he had sold guns to countries that had enemies. In particular, he sold guns to Egypt, which had been enemies of Israel.

Started out as a $33 cracked stock M-44 from Century, I've got a total of around $50 in the whole shebang, but a priceless experience. A "poor man's hog gun" and perfect for loaning out to the brother-in-law or throwing behind the seat or in the trunk of the car and not worrying about scratches or dents My most basic advice: make sure you have a good, accurate shooter before you start spending money or cutting and hacking.

Few military rifles are rare or exceptional in there original form, They were made by the tens of millions, the surviving examples frequently have lost there historic provenance. Some of the finest sports ever were built by British and German craftsmen on military foundations. I believe in saving pristine or rifles with real historical provenance but of the tens of millions that have been built a small fraction meet that criteria. Rifles that actually saw front line action are usually in horrible shape, They were tools and used for whatever the task called for, seldom cared for or coddled. Great sporting rifles are very rare in comparison and when you have the means and opportunity custom make one into the likeness you prefer I see no sin. There projects are not inexpensive for the most part. A good Remington 700 costs less, But it will never compare to my Pre WW1 Oberndorf Mauser 98 with set triggers, a 1/2 octagonal barrel and fine stock. I do not care for hack jobs either, but a fine sporter on a military foundation can be a thing to behold.

I look at it the other way....
To me, a torn up battlefield pickup is worth more than an armory-mint "safe queen".
Many of these old guns have a story, and "trench art" or carvings on the furniture help to tell that story for the person willing to do some research.

ShadyJeff just found a Nazi penny under the action of his Mauser.
One of the guys on the AK forum had a magazine that had an entire paragraph scratched into the paint. He was looking to have it translated, and IIRC, it was a poem/love letter to his girlfriend.
Many AK's are engraved with the Serbian Cross and the soldier's name.
Of course, the "notches" indicating kills are a real thing.

I agree, That is called Provenance........and I did make exceptions for that. Few weapons have it.

I have a sporterized g98 in the original caliber, the barrel is from sauer&sohne and it is a no1 contour the rifle originally had the chopped military stock which i replaced wit a AAA grade fancy english walnut monte carlo stock, I use ivory salvaged from piano keys and ebony from my local exotic store to make butt, grip, and forend cap laminates, on the round gripcap laminate I attatched a sterling silver stags head that I butchered a necklace pendant for. the stock is a hand rubbed oil finish done by myself and I had the metal reblued to a nice luster. I engraved the mag and the trigger guard in typical bavarian style along with the safety. the bolt is jewelled and it retains the original tilden scope mount and rigs from the original sporterization done in the 30's. sporterized rifles are not always "Bubba'd".

Do it. My first sporterize attempt, was an Arisaka type 38 bring back from WWll, given to me by my uncle. Sling, bayo & scabard, with the bayo on it was taller than me. Like's been said, milsurp in the '60s they were literaly a dime a dozen. Of course I regret ever touching it now. If you must, 98 Mausers are proven, but maybe try something different, like a tack driver K31 carbine. The SKSs are the nuevo donors these days.

thank you argonaut for speaking like a reasonable adult, rather than most of the rest here, barely disguising insults as acceptance. "sure it's your gun, but you're a complete f%$*(^% for doing that to it" this kind of thinking smacks of the lefty hardliners who don't want anyone to have certain kinds of guns. if you have an assault rifle, you must be a terrorist, if you have a milsurp sporter, you must be an ignorant redneck. i just can't understand the elitism. many of us starting buying these things because they were cheap and fun to shoot. if you got an ugly one, you spruce it up a bit. as it stands, i'm not endorsing taking a perfect gun and chopping it all to bits, but if you have something that isn't special, in great shape, or likely to drastically rise in value, you're not an a-hole for fixing it up to make it a better shooter. like i said, i've only "butchered" one rifle myself, which was not even a rifle but an ugly, mismatched mosin barreled action, worth about as much as a pack of smokes. when it's done, it'll likely not be worth much more, but it'll sure as hell shoot well, and that's all i'm concerned with. i haven't bought a single gun as a financial investment, but a personal investment. i don't care if anyone is impressed as long as they work for me. while we'd all like to think our opinion should carry more weight than the next for whatever reason, free-thinking is what made this country great, and god-willing, it will again someday.

My absolute favorite stick in my vast collection: K98 rechambered in 270 weatherby mag, Bought for $225 at a pawn shop and shoots better than my 700 with over a grand already invested.

intresting muzzle break you have on that m44. You should market those for Yugo SKS!

I am in the process actually to reverse a sporting job on a 1917 SMLE No1 Mk3, so to each there own.

For all the Purist guys that hate when people cut up mil-surp rifles, here you go.

Started out as one of the cleanest 91/30's I've ever seen. Drilled and tapped for the scope mount, cut barrel to 22", cut stock, added pistol grip and recoil pad. Gonna thread the barrel and turn out a muzzle break next.

Didnt know how I wanted to paint the stock. My 10yr old girl was painting some xmas decorations white at the time and said "you should paint it white". I said "white?", then thought about it and decided to try the snow camo.

A clean complete 03-A3 didn't always cost $800-$1000. Before the '68 GCA, you could mail order a SVT-40 sniper with scope for about $120.
I run across vet bringback K98's that have been "bubba'ed", so it could be used to put meat on the table. Those are the ones you use to sporterize, the ones with no collector value. Every complete rifle that gets a bubba treatment, just makes the value go up on the ones that don't.
Either restore one, that hasn't been permanently altered, or go all the way and make a nice custom out of it. Taking a $100 rifle, putting $100 into it, to make a $50 rifle doesn't make much sense if you plan to sell it.
Taking a $100 rifle, putting $500 into it to make it a family heirloom, is priceless. There's "bubba" and there's "custom".
This is a "custom" '03 in .264WinMag converted to left hand for a good friend of mine that could never find a LH action bolt gun that he liked, or fit him. You won't find a factory rifle built anything like it.

Should have let the 10 year old paint it. Maybe it wouldn't have turned out so fugly.

Hey bud, don't let those guys get to you. Historical pieces will always have a home in a museum. Leave history to the REAL historians. Those "collectors" can go ahead and horde their collection only to have it pass down to their children, if they have any, and be sold later anyways. Leave the collecting to them, it's they're hobby.

I'm guessing your a shooter and not much of a collector. If that's the case, your gun is a weapon that fits your needs. If it doesn't meet them all, make it fit you. Just do it right. Like I learned with scopes, don't cheap out on it or it'll just take away from the potential of your weapon. Some of those comments about resale does make sense, but if you have a respectable job, does it really matter? So you loose what you put into it, hell with that mentality everyone should just eat McDonald's. You just crap it out anyways. Why waste money? I'm sure they could start collecting burgers too. I hear they don't rot, or rot very slowly.

I know that their are better guns to be had for a cheaper price, but those guns just don't fit me. I've shot Savages (10series), Remingtons (p series and others), Winchesters (70 and others 70 would have been my second choice.) and other various makers, but in the end I always went back to the Mosin.

Here's my boy. He's got a nice cheek rest to get a good weld and a custom length of pull to fit me. The thumb hole with finger grooves I sanded to contour to my hand. I pillered, bedded, and free floated it myself. Oh the cheek piece on the stock had to be altered a bit so the bolt could go all the way back, so I made a sweet little channel recently. You can see it on the picture because these are older. I can't find my camera cord so I can't upload any new ones as of yet. I also got action screws from rock solid ind., since it was a bare barreled reviver when i first got it, a rock solid ind. scope mount on it as well. I had bent bolt from the boltman. The scope mount is as the name says, rock solid, and the bolt has made my action so smooth... It reminds me of a fat frat boy on a oil filled slip and slide :*).

At the range, it was able to shoot about 1 MOA with a cheap 9x scope from tasco (borrowed from another friend till I could afford my Vortex), cheap yugo using only a bipod. I'm sure It could go sub moa if I used a bench rest and a sand bag, but I don't feel I gain any practice with that. I'll shoot out further once I start reloading this caliber~

The begining


The middle


The end soon to come~

You can grab what ever stock you like and refinish it to your ideal~ Then hump it over and over until your satisfied. I mean really, no one picked it up for over 4 months and the priced got reduced to what I could afford. I'm sure there are plenty more out there you can afford.

I know I don't post a lot on the boards, but i almost shot my soup out my mouth here.

I love history.

I would suggest taking an old action and building a sportinized rifle from the ground up. THAT would be interesting to me. Taking a old useless, discarded un barreled receiver and turn it into something like that Fin Rifle is what I don’t have a problem with. Taking a military rifle that has history…well its like if I went to U.S. Navy to let me have the USS Missouri over in Pearl Harbor strip it down and make it into a large yacht for a Russian Billionaire, I mean....History be dammed!

If it's a basket case project car? Sure... it'll never have any real value, or at least it'll never have value even close to the cost it would take to restore it, so in the case, have at it. Chop it, slam it, bag it, and blow it.

My M44 and my Yugo SKS that i built for small game / camping / hunting guns.

My M44 started out as a cheap beat up pos i picked up for 40 bucks that most people would have been embarrassed to admit they owned. I removed the bayo and touched up the bluing here and there, added an Advanced Technology's stock and for less than a hundred bucks i have a nice shooter.

I got the SKS (Yugo) in a trade several years so i figure it cost me about $100. I added an Advanced Technology's stock, bayo and muzzle break removed, recrowned the barrel and made it 922r compliant. Stock and 922r parts were about $190. Cutting and recrowning the barrel was about $30. For a little over $300 i have a good small game rifle that i can toss in the back of my buddy's jeep while 4 wheelin', not have to worry about scratching up on rocks or brush, and still use it in a defensive situation.

Yea, it's an AK with a bunch of AR parts welded/stuck onto it. Quite a monstrosity, indeed!
