Wow that's pretty neat, tahuna. Bullpup style and everything.

Wait a second... I'm pretty sure I saw that gun on RoboCop....

I didn't say I didn't like them in general... just that one. it fell way short of expectations and in the end it was better in it's original state. this config improves in some areas, creates more issues in others. overall it's a good step up from bubba'd sporter but not something that I would buy again.

the biggest gripe I have with it is that the trapdoor cheek piece flops around so it's not exactly stealthy. I'm thinking about D&T the hinge and body and fashioning a spring to hold it shut when not in use.

Nice M38 Unspoken, I need to pick one of those up eventually to go with my M44. I also see its sitting in a wooden bed... what classic truck is it riding in?

@Mossy500, looks like you did do a good job on it. I like it

@Unspoken, the m38 looks very red. It looks sweet. Just a different red stain? Or is it just the lighting?

Judging by the bed strips and wheel wells, my guess is a 67-72 Chevy/GMC pickup.

Nathan knows his classics! That's a '69 Custom10.
The M38 really is that stunningly deep mahogany red, I've never seen one quite like it. It's also a chopped down 91/30 (no, it's not a 91/59). When you disassemble the stock, on the underside of the receiver, you can see the original serial number of the donor 91/30. Very handy and fun little carbine.

This is a MN that a friend gave to me a few years ago. It has a 1943 date on the barrel along with the 'hammer and sickle' commie stamp. It is arsenal refinished as new with a perfect bore. I think it is a M38- I'm not very familiar with the MN variants.

Yep- looks to be an M38 carbine (first issued 1938). They were fornon-front line troops that (presumably) didn't need a bayonet.

My Mosin

I apologize in advance for the screw heads; they were taken apart literally hundreds of times. I've since replaced them and found a proper bit for my torque wrench that will not cause damage to the new ones, even over the long-term!





Front view of the prototype that started my business...


... and the rear.

The action is shimmed and the barrel corked:



I also made some cool things like a two-stage Finn M39-style trigger. Instead of pins, it has bearings

You can barely see a couple bearings under the sear.



This rifle is capable of this (or rather, I'm capable of doing this, with my 20/55 sight; I'm sure the rifle's much better):



I had to work for that group, but as long as I have a target I can see, I can do about that. I take coyotes at 200 yards. That's about as far as I can see, uncorrected.

I know what these rifles can do and I love to see folks wring them out. Heck, a Finnish M39 had to have at least a 1.3MOA capability to be accepted into service!

sounds fair and good. the groupings are good and its not an issue, a few people have to get "replacement" parts on their mosin to function correctly. (screws, stock ect)

it looks in good condition, i personally like the 9130's look more than the m44.they look more streamlined and do not have the mechanism for the bayonet on the side. the longer barrel dose make them heavy but that can be good for balistics

Picked this 1915 PTG a few weeks back at the local pawn shop. Haven't shot it yet but plan to here shortly. I've since got a handguard for it.
