    THE GUNS ARE AGOOD CHEAP PLATFORM TO PLAY WITH. BUT IF YOUR GOING TO REALLY GET INTO IT MUCH I STILL FELL THE FEW HUNDRED DOLLARS SAVED INITALY IS LONG GONE BY THE TIME YOU GET ONE DONE RIGHT VS REWRKING A MORE TRADITIONAL MAUSER OR OTHER RECIVER. THAT GUY COULD HAVE HAD A MUCH MORE VALUBALE GUN FOR LESS WHEN DONE IF HE HAD STARTED WITH A MAUSER. IF YOUR GOING TO STICK A $1000 INTO A CUSTOM SPORTER ID NOT USE THE MOSIN.

    NOW IF YOU LIKE THE 7.62X54 AND THE BARREL IS GOOD AN YOU JUST WANT A GOOD RIFLE TO KILL A FEW DEER THEN THERE GREAT. CHOP THE BARREL A LITTLE REWORK THE BOLT CLEAN UP THE TRIGGER SOME HOW AND FIGURE OUT A SCOPE MOUNT, ADD A STOCK IF YOU FEEL THE NEED AND YOU WILL HAVE A GOOD HUNTING RIFLE FOR AROUND $200.

    I NOW HAVE A FEW OF THEM AN IM THINKING I MIGHT WELD UP THE BRIDGE MOVE THE BOLT HANDEL BACK AN DRILL AN TAP THE WELDED RECIVER FOR A SCOPE RAIL.
    WAS THINKING A HEX RECIVER WITH A HALF HEX BARREL IN 45-70 OR A 6.5X54r WOULD BE COOL. THERE ARE SOME GOOD STOCKS OUT THERE. I WOULD NOT ENTERTAIN ANY OF THIS IF I DIDNT HAVE A LATHE, MILL, TIG AND ALL THE OTHER STUFF NEEDED. IT WOULD BE A FUN CHEAP PROJECT IF I HAVE NOTHING ELSE TO DO. OTHER WISE ID JUST BUY A MAUSER OR REM 700 AND DO THE BOLT ON ROUTE.


    A GUY WOULD BE SMART TO BUY A FEW OF THESE TO STASH AWAY WHILE THERE STILL CHEAP AS WELL AS THE AMMO TO GO WITH THEM. I HAVE A ROUGH M44 THAT I MIGHT CUT DOWN EVEN MORE AN MAKE A 16" BARRELD OPEN SIGHT BRUSH/TRUNK GUN. THE EXISTING BARREL IS ROUGH AT THE MUZZEL END THE BAYONET IS MISSING AND THE NUMBERS DONT MATCH. MAYBE ADD A FOLDER TO THE MIX FOR GIGGLES AN A AMD 65 BRAKE OR SOMETHING FUNKY . THE GUN IS WORTH ABOUT $60 AS IS IN PARTS. I WAS ORIGINAL GOING TO CUT IT UP AN REWELD IT AS A VIRGIN RECIVER FOR A PISTOL BUILD BUT IM NOT SURE IM COMFORTABLE WITH THE LEGALITYS OFDOING IT. AN IM NOT SURE ITS WORTH THE EFFORT.

    Hello 1biggun,
    Why not build your M-91 into a Russian "Urban Jungle Carbine" with a G-3 flash hider ??? A 16 inch barrel should make it a handy trunk gun.

    Im not sure what to do with it. its a m44 but its really rough I havent shot it but the barrel is not great. ..

    A skeleton folder with a red dot and a break of some sort would be cool I have some g3 flash hiders. I was thinking the amd 65 brake would work better. maybe one of those spiked breaks. I have alot of better stuff on the plate before this.

    maybe a SBR with a folder an a 14" barrel LOL

    If you cant hit them you cpould blind them with the fire ball. or cook hot dogs with it .

    I have had the wild idea of making the bolt lug the primary lug in a pistol caliber build.

    410/45LC would be interesting also, though getting it to feed would be interesting also...

    mauser 98's are getting very scarce,exept for yugos,which is fine if you want to stick with a cartridge about the same length as 8mm mauser.I'm building an african safari rifle, 458 win mag, from a 1909 arg mauser, but I fear it may be the last one i get to build in a magnum caliber. Mosins are fairly cheap, and i would like to build a 95 mauser look alike, with butterknife handle, shanabel fore arm etc. But of course 98 mauser is best to build, just wish I could find vz24 for 80 bucks like I did years ago.
