I'd like to see if some of you Mosin owners could give me some sweet ideas that I can do to my Mosin Nagant. I plan on hunting when I get back from Iraq, and I'm wanting to make my Mosin a little more "tactical" so to speak. Post some pictures of custom Mosins that you all have! I'll post mine, or at least the most current picture since my friend, DystruktoBoi1 (on this site) is basically adding everything I buy to the weapon. I currently have a Tula manufactured, Russian 1942 Mosin Nagant resting in an ATI stock, a scope I got for $100.00 that has 36 or something like that, different crosshair colors you can choose from, it has a sweet cartridge holder (holds 9 I believe) on the buttstock, a nice extendable bipod, and an ATI scope mount. I plan on having the entire barrel re-blued as well as the bolt. I plan on having the bolt turned down so it can cooperate with the scope mount. Also, I plan on having a nice safety pull-ring added to the end of my bolt to make it easier to place my bolt in the safe position. I'll try to post pictures of my Mosin as well as ideas that I'm going off of currently to mod my Mosin. The more ideas, the better!

This is my Mosin as of now. My friend is holding up the scope since I have to have the mount drilled and tapped. Work in progress.

This is the bolt idea I'm going with. The safety pull-ring as well as the turned down bolt handle. Except, I want my all black.

This is the magazine I would LOVE to add, if only it would be produced. Necromancer (the guy making it) is still testing it.

And FINALLY, this is what I'm AIMING to get my rifle to look like. I absolutely love the way it looks. I saw it on Armslist for sale for about $550 I believe. If I lived near him, or if my buddy did, this would have been mine.

Anyways, post what you guys have! I'd love to see some fellow Mosins as well as some modification ideas! If you have any Mosins for sale, PLEASE let me know. I am in the market for another! Thank you!

Firearms i think the barrel these guys have is what hes talking about. I've never ordered from the before so i cant speak on their customer service.
Thanks! I looked and I think having a barrel that big (almost looking like a shotgun) looks a little weird, lol.

That's my baby so far. Needs a little more done to it though. Waiting on my friend to send out the bolt to get the handle reworked and the entire bolt blued. :)

Personally I would have left a beautiful russian piece of history in original condition, but to each his own. In your case, for sure if you are putting a scope ontop of it, opt for the PU sniper turned down bolt if you can find one. My Russian PU sniper bolt is as smooth as a Krag Jorgensen bolt. Also, if possible to add onto a mosin, a Dragunov SVD flash hider would top it off. Good luck with her, very nice rifles.
Yeah, I know what you mean about leaving history alone, but, I plan on buying another one to keep original. I'm looking into buying a 1934 Tula Arms Mosin-Nagant with a hex receiver and matching bayonet. I am only modding this because my friend got the luck of buying one with all matching parts to include the bayonet. So I'm in search of a 100% matching to keep in a box and leave alone. Lol. But yeah, I've got bolt work being done and the FLASH HIDER is an AMAZING Idea that I didn't think about. That's going on my to-do list. Thanks!

Id like to have 2 of them, one to "accessorize", and the other in origional condition. Lucky for me these things are cheap enough to own 3 or 4 or 5 or 6.
You are on the same road I'm walkng on!

i just wanted to show of my collection.



and this gun i did all the mods myself. The 91/30 i bought as is from some guy.



some of the mods you guys posted are wicked. Demerson, are you a machinist?
Sweet friggin collection! I've got only one, but I'll damn sure get a couple more! I want one that I don't want to touch at all (100% matching parts), the one I have now is my deer hunter rifle, and I want one to just shoot for fun, corrosive ammo/bulk/surplus, whatever. Lol. Ya know, gotta cover cheap fun and have serious fun :)

How are you guys making all of your pictures so big anyway? I keep getting tiny pics when I upload from my computer!

Start an account at Image hosting, free photo sharing & video sharing at Photobucket then upload your pictures. After you upload them you hover over the pictures and a little window pops up, then you click on the img window and it will save it to your memory then in the window on this website right click and select paste. You will see an html code pop up. It will post the picurea nice and big for you!

Also im glad you enjoyed my collection, I enjoy these guns a lot! I think I have about $350 into the most moded M44. I did the mamachining myself. ;)
Sweet! Thanks for the tutorial on picture posting, lol. But yeah, I do love your collection, I'm into the Nagants as well. I went on leave during August during mid-tour and my buddy ordered one to his FFL, the lady there decided to order a few since they were cheap. I picked one up just for the sake of going shooting with my buddy. It created my Mosin addiction as well as firearms in general. I love them. lol. But I've been looking into buying another one, or two. Saw a couple on GunBroker, one had an ATI on it already. I think I've invested a total of $430 in my Mosin if you include buying the gun itself too. Well worth it in my opinion. Works the same as any other deer rifle, accurate and powerful. Cheaper for what it can do though! And you did the bolt work yourself? Might have to see if I can send one your way if I get another rifle... lol

If you are looking for an investment nagant to leave alone, look for a rare variant. A hex Tula is not that rare, and the prices are not a whole lot more than the lessers. If you are seriously looking into collecting nagants and have the coin, look for a Finnish nagant, or a WWI era, or odd manufacturer like remington, westinghouse, chatellerault, spanish civi war, etc. Go to guide is 7.62x54R.net if you want to collect mosins. Beautiful guns, tough as an AK, and light on the pocket to collect. Good luck to ya.
Just wanted to thank you for your post, the site you listed is a big help, so now I'm looking into Finnish Nagants! haha

Noodles, you have some serious builds there.nice..I love my 91/30 izhevsk all matching # but am also working on a build.have been waiting a year for my center balance system stock from Bernie.just google or go to cbrps dot com.this will give my mosin a new age look without having to do too many mods to it.
Yeah those CBRPS people have some sweet stuff. I was just looking at them. I watched some videos though, looked like you have to load one round at a time... not sure I like the single shot/reload type deal. Hopefully that was a prototype if anything.

My great grandpas spirit spoke to me tonight. He said to kick each end every one of you ****ers for ruining a good rifle!
Dosvidanya!
A lot of people say that, but hey, we are just making a good rifle, better. At least it's still being used rather than sitting in a closet or gun cabinet being neglected :)

Do not bubba**** a mosin! That is what an sks is for *hands syxtnyne a tapco catalog*
An SKS isn't bolt action... Therefore, for my bolt action modding, I must use a Mosin-Nagant :)

If modding a rifle is what gives you enjoyment out of it, then I say mod the thing until it cant be modified any more! Heck its a mosin nagant its not a collectors item and probably never will be especially with the huge amount of people collecting them hoping they will go up in value.
I agree with the modding! There are plenty more Mosins to go around lol. But, I do think eventually in value they can go up... Like the Finnish models, I did some research on their value as well as the PU Scoped (original) Mosins. :)

If you have the coin, get an authentic Vasily Zaytsev type PU sniper mosin. They are a thing of beauty.
Dude you aren't kidding. Lol. I saw one when I was doing some research and I loved it. EXPENSIVE as hell, but amazing.
