There's a name for a super-short Mosin I'm always forgetting. The partisans in East Europe used to use them as did the Russian mob. But isn't the one he's created there a Class III?

Look in the background on the stool/table and you'll see some copper-coated surplus ammo. Any bets it's corrosive? :evil:

Honestly....You buy a gun. It's your gun, you can do what you want to it, but it doesn't make it right.

I have a romanian m44 with the barrel at the muzzle end completely wrecked by cleaning wear. I could almost see doing something like that to it- however I just don't see myself spending $200 in taxes + jumping through endless hoops to make a $40 junker rifle marginally more shootable.

DMK
September 17, 2007, 05:40 PM
Though it may be illegal.maybe not. Mosin carbines have 20" barrels. This one might be a 16, which would look very short, especially if the camera angle exaggerates it.

That said, this is one fugly firearm that only a mad garage gunsmith could love. In fact, I'm a mad garage gunsmith and I don't even like it. :scrutiny:

elmerfudd
September 17, 2007, 05:58 PM
Just to be fair to the guy, this looks like something that could be cobbled together for next to nothing just for s--ts and giggles. If you had a no shooting POS MN lying around and a few extra AR parts, all you'd have to do is chop the barrel, solder on the muzzle brake, cut the front and rear of the stock off and screw on the AR stock and rails and then paint the whole thing black. You could do it in a couple of hours and it wouldn't really cost you anything since the AR parts could be removed and used later.

Without more info this rifle could be anything from a extra ugly bubba hackjob to an UBER cool integrally suppressed single shot 44magnum.

We should try to find out more before passing judgment.

I agree. I hate seeing a nice millitary rifle that was cut up to make it look like a generic hunting rifle. But this is so far generic that it's actually kind of cool. I mean come on, that thing is freaking hilarious! It's an assault weapon mosin! I bet if you showed that to Carolyn McCarthy the mosin nagant would be mentioned in the next AWB :neener:

Flashman, I think that Mosin is starting to bud off new Mosins. You need to plant it in some rich Russian soil and it should have fresh Mosin on it come spring.

Interesting, but I don't see the use. I could get it if he'd done it with an SMLE, but a Mosin just doesn't cycle very quickly. Plus it only holds five rounds. In order to be a truly tacticool Mosin, he'd have to give it a magazine extension of 20 rounds and insert a Mosin-compatible Pedersen-type device that would still work with 7.62x54R. I'll start working on that... :evil:
It's cool, but it's a very anachronistic weapon to me. You've basically gotten no extra capability from the weapon (probably less, actually), retained a significant portion of the original weight and gained little. But, then again, it was probably just a neato project. Which it does admirably. Really, guys. There's so many Mosins out there, he probably took one with a sucky stock and a worthwhile receiver and made it far cooler.

the pic: awesome! obvious time and effort, and its very cool. definitely one of a kind and id love to go on TV to show how that "asssault weapon" and the original m91 are actually the same rifle.

flashman: good GOD that thing is hideous.. I almost never say that about a gun but i looks like a mosin with serious tumors. still... kinda cool... i hope you have pins to help hold those grips in place though.

nolo: mosins cycle damn quick if you know what you are doing and the gun is in good shape. they only don't cycle quickly when they have sticky bolt, and sticky bolt is not supposed to happen. try a finnish m39 and you will see what i mean.

First of all, that's my pic - I know it is, because I took it.... ;)

Second of all, the "Mosin Tacti-Bubba" was built by an FFL/SOT with a great imagination, sense of humor and an afternoon with too much time on his hands - it was a joke. He mounted a CAR stock, pistol grip, an Aimpoint Comp M2, multi rail, vertical grip, AK muzzle brake and a tactical light. He called it a "Full Auto Bolt Action Mosin Nagant"....It's not a serious tool....

Third of all, it was fun as hell to shoot! It felt like it was sucking the air out of your lungs when you pulled the trigger and it was also pretty damned accurate as well. All I can say is, buckle up and hang on when you squeeze the trigger...It's got heap big boom boom.... :)

So lighten up purists - it was all in good fun. More pics available at NES, where you'll learn who the FFL/SOT is.... Have a nice night....

I detect some sort of Romeo and Juliet story here. It's like the illegitimate love-child of two rifles who can never be together because of forces outside their control. Kind of like the offspring of a dachshund and a St. Bernard. I hope it doesn't breed!

I'm a member of NEShooters, I was at this car shoot and actually fired that rifle. It was one fun gun to shoot. Never judge a book (gun) by it's covers. It belonged to a guy who showed up with a MA Duece 50 Cal that I also got to shoot. Don't bash it until you've tried it.

Go on the forum and check out the other great events of the day. Mosin Nagant volley, S&W 500 volley, M1 Garand Volley, several full auto firearms and lots and lots of shoot anything you got. Not to mention the Mosin and Garand bayonet charge. You can't tell by the pics but there is a Yankee's baseball cap hanging off the truck that got vaporized by the incoming rounds it took.

Seriously, after looking at this picture, why would you have a pistol grip and foregrip on a BOLT ACTION. Its creative, and as MassMark is saying, its only for fun. But its still quite a laugh :D

I was there and I shot it too. The muzzle blast was breathtaking.

This was not a case of a young person not respecting old rifles. He took what would have ended up as a hideously ugly wall hanger and made it a shooter again.

I was at that shoot also and got to shoot it. It is a fun gun to shoot, I thought it would have a big recole, but it had none. You feel it in your sinuis after it is fired. It is not what you expect, and man what a fireball you get from it. The gun is wrong on so many levels, but that's what makes it fun.

Hi Folks! I'm the guy who built this fine tacticool Mosin!

It was all done in fun, and I was just doing it to make fun of all the junk they make to bolt on to AR-15 type rifles.
It started life as a chopped up Remington Mosin from 1917, the stock had been chopped and the barrel was a sewer pipe.
I chopped it to 8 inches, installed an AK74 style brake (to enhance the flash) and bolted on all sorts of crap!

I thought it was funny.........
