Not finnished yet. Barrel needs to come down 3" and a different stock is in the new future plus the new bolt with either get welded in place or be replaced by something a bit longer and sturdier.

Howdy,
IIRC a retailer or member named Boltman makes welded bolts with handles that are designed for the ATI mount.

Hope it helps.

I'll have to check into that. I found someone else that sells the prefabbed bent bolts but he wants $70 for them. $55 sounds a bit more reasonable.

It would take longer but I believe he will put the handle on your bolt, thus keeping the proper headspace. Just to be safe IMO I'd have the rifle headspace checked with the new bolt. It's moderately easy to make the trigger pull much better.

Not nearly finnished. Need to adjust trigger, finnish the bolt, and deal with the sleeve on the end of the barrel.

Wait, if you were replacing the stock, why didn't you just remove the original and sell it? I'm assuming it was cut back, but I don't know anything about Mosins.

ATI stock from CTD. Think I got lucky. Mine wasn't warped at all.

Thank you captain obvious. Not trying to be a jerk but you DID boo my thread. If you don't like it move on and don't leave degrading comments.

how's it shoot? Not sure. I haven't shot it with the new parts yet.

He didn't, read the reply above his. He was responding to "abooboo". Doooh...
