I recently picked up a bubba'ed mosin. Seems some one wanted a sporter and chopped the stock on a mosin and rounded the fore-end and filed the cheek come back about a half an inch. Well good thing it was nothing extream value its a 1943 mix matched arsenal refinished rifle. I was thinking about restoring it but I already have a nice historically correct 91/30 and it would coast more in parts the the whole gun did. So, I refinished the butchered stock and smoothed out the file marks and am currently working on the bolt and removing the cosmoline and rough spots. I have decided to tidy the mosin up and turn it in to a truck gun type rifle. I will post pictures when I am finished of the cleaned up repurposed rifle.
