    This post will make little Vasili cry, but how hard would it be to bed a Mosin action in a nice composite stock?

    I wonder if it would be cheaper than getting a Remy 700. :naughty:

    It can be done but it's not cheap unless you go with the monte carlo stock.

    The one my roommate built for me he did completely custom.

    New bolt, scope mount, match grade trigger, custom made stock.
    He did it just to do it though, like the 10/22. He enjoyed building guns.

    If you want a scope, you'll still need a scope mount that you have to drill and tap into the receiver and also a turned down bolt but both are available online.

    avoid the scout scope mount. It's crap. Had one on my other nagant and it didn't hold up for shit.

    Mosins are not the easiest things to scope. I would recommend letting a gunsmith drill and tap the receiver if you plan on getting a standard scope mount installed. The turned down bolt handles are available though. I wouldn't use one of the cheap-o ATI drill and tap ones if you can avoid it, even if it comes with your scope mount base.

    that's actually REALLY hot.
     
  8. Cheaper, maybe. More accurate/versatile/ full of potential, no way.

    Thats what I was thinking. So you save like $300 on the gun. You lose a huge aftermarket, have a bore that probably won't compare to a bore on a new 700, and lose the ability to walk into any sports store in the country and pick up high quality accurate hunting or defensive ammunition. I'd save up a little more.

    When you can build some better for not much more, why would you choose a Mosin?

    the PU optic, cant use it without both a bent bolt because the scope lies right over the receiver, and you need to have the receiver drilled and tapped. I'm in the process of aquiring both but they cost more than the rifle itself. :hs:

    You can put a scope on them pretty easily - just buy yourself a dovetail -> weaver scope mount and put it on the rear sight base mount. You may have to un-solder the rear sight and beat it loose with a hammer but it's pretty easy and very solid. I did it on mine with a mount I found on ebay, it's held up fine and i've got about 200 rounds on it so far. You have to use a long eye relief (pistol style) scope, but it's plenty accurate for me.

    All you have to do is take the stock off (completely) and heat up the rear sight base with a torch (small propane one worked for me, took a few minutes to heat up though). I set the muzzle on a piece of wood and took a short 2x4 and rested it on the sight and hit it a few times with a large hammer and it fell right off. The sight is soldered to the barrel on a dovetail mount just like on a BB gun.

    IT may be polishing a turd but it can be done, I saw a frankin-mosin that had been cut down to 14 inches witha 2 inch muzzle brake welded on. Practically no recoil.
