I have a spare Mosin carbine action. 1950s made, short barrel, sidefolder bayonet, absolutely perfect metal, has everything except the wood parts and stock screws.
I could buy a stock and screws and have a nice rifle, but face it, I already have a primo Mosin 91/30, and there were eleventy zillion Mosins made, most of them still original, so there's no real incentive to "restore" this one.
So... what to do? I already have an Enfield .45-70 project, and a bolt action target rifle.
The Voices are muttering about an underfolder stock, 20-round Lahti magazine, and a PPsh-style vented metal handguard with the sidefolder bayonet. Maybe a pistol grip.
And some kind of tacti-cool flash hider or muzzle brake...
I think the Voices as a bunch of wimps. Surely you guys can come up with more bling than that!
