    I have no idea how I missed this post earlier.

    That is some really nice Shade-Tree Gunsmithing! This is the kind of work that just gets me all kinds of excited!!!

    I really liked the earlier tigger-stripes. The latter paint was nice as well. I won't ask about accuracy because it is obvious that this is Minute of Buck capable....

    Really nice job, and very inventive! I am in awe of the finished product.

    If you do decide to go with a removable mag setup, go with a centerfeed or single stack mag and build to suit the mag that you choose. The narrow top-end of the mag will drastically reduce the amount of meat you will need to remove (and the amount of inherent strength of the receiver). I have done this kind of mod to a Mauser in the past using M-14 and FN-FAL mags, and the result compromises the weapon IMHO. Using an AI style mag was a vast improvement in both reliability and in the weapon remaining sound and safe in operation.....

    Mosin's are nice rifles, but they do depend on that fixed mag for some of their inherent strength.

    Just my $0.02.

    If you do decide to do that mod, POST A LOT OF PICS!!!!

    Please.

    BTW: This trigger has been recommended to me in the past. I have not tried one yet, but I figured I would pass it on...

    And then there is Timney:

    belson my brother in law came to get my kid and asked if we had the scope zeroed. i said yes. he asked, and i quote, "so are you grouping a paper plate at 50?" his jaw dropped when it told him that my kid was about 1/4th that at a 100. conner consistently shoots this rifle with a 2-3" spread off of sandbags.

    my grafted stock did come apart 3 days before he went out. we made one last range trip and the spline joint at the receiver/butt failed. overnited an ati monte carlo stock and had him ready to shoot the next day.


    coils funny you said war paint. my brother in law is a hardcore fsu seminole and thats exactly what he said.

    The high stressed areas could be thinned of wood and beefed up with fiberglass... I have done this with WW-II Jap rifle stocks and chicom SKS stocks made of soft jungle junkwood.

    VD i used a spline joint and "thought" it was stout enough. i think it was 1/4" wide x 1/2" long but only went a bit over 1/4" deep. it snapped. i will most likely hog it out and use a piece of aluminum bar stock. in hind sight i should had mortised the joint.
