    Default spare Mosin butchery suggestions solicited

    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!

    Look around, I just saw surplus stocks for something like $50.

    Also you said you have a 91/30, what you have here is an M44, so it's not the same. And these were selling for $80-100 early last year, there's not many left in the states and are going for 200 now. That's a decent jump in just a year.
    I say put it together, shoot it a few times, and if you still don't care for it then sell or trade it for something you want.

    I'm with Coils on this one. Put a nice carbine stock on it. The only accessory I'd add is a US GI grenade launcher spigot using some bayonet hardware adapted. That would deal with the occasional tank in the yard problem.

    If and when I modify one to .30-06, I'm going to use one of the dime-a-dozen Izzys. I'd say "restore" the carbine and sell it to fund another project

    If you are looking for a greater challenge build a drop-in Pedersen Device in 7.62x25mm for your carbine !!! It has been done before by the way. A Tokarev pistol mag may fit inside the MN magwell as a convienient placement. The result should resemble a semi-auto Delylse (SP) carbine !!!
