Note that this is legally registered per the 1934 NFA.

This is my SBR'd MN 91/30 with a 7" barrel. I finally got to take some video today of a friend shooting it and I thought I'd share. :D

Dont care what you do to your rifles, BUT I must ask why?

I am on dial up, so I will have to wait to see the video.:(

I wanted a copy of what has been recovered from Jewish resistance fighters in WWII and what certain Russians had used earlier than that. $70 rifle (non matching numbers, beat up already) and $200 tax stamp. To me, a fun toy. :D

Also, the video is only 11 seconds long, it doesn't take long to download even on dial-up.

From what I've heard, russian peasants made very similar SBR's for themselves in the early 1900's.

I think you cut off too much of the pistol grip there.

I thought about doing the same thing.

That doesn't look as painful as I imagined. I'm unfamiliar with the NFA rules, but could you drop that barreled receiver in another unmodified stock without any additional paperwork?

I made it how I wanted it. :)

As it's registered as a short barreled rifle, I could put a full stock on it, yes.

As an SBR, yes he could.

Awkward, you mean? :D

How heavy is it? Is it hard to fire one-handed?

I made mine to look much like the few photographed recoveries from WWII that the Jews used against the Nazis. I haven't weighed it, nor have I tried to fire it one handed. The way it is, firing one handed would put both the triggerguard and the cocking knob into your hand. No thanks! :D

If you're ever in Colorado, contact me and you can be the first to fire it one handed.

If I'm ever out that way, I'll take you up on that.

I'll be sure to wear some gloves though. :)

I'd be interested how far out that thing is accuracy wise... does a round even get a full twist down the barrel? Can't remember the rifling specs on a MN...

Actually, what you want is to do some gelatin testing on this thing at short range, see how well the round actually does out of such a short tube.
I saw pictures of the Israeli Mosins, never thought I'd see someone actually do that themselves, thank you. One peice of history into another.
