Why on Earth would you need that kind of porting for a 54R?

I can't say I don't like it. It's certainly a great "bubba" job, one of the better ones I've seen. Though there is one downside - its too short to grab the other end of the stock and use it as a baseball bat if you run out of ammo & need to swing at an attacker from 35 feet away.

So someone spent a decent amount of money making that thing, presumably, more accurate than gave it the sight radius of a pistol.

I looked at a Marlin, brand new bolt action rifle with a weatherproof stock and it cost only $299 at Dick's. Micro-grooved barrel and an adjustable trigger too boot. Darned nice rifle.

My question is why would you go to that much effort to make a rifle when $299 will build you a rifle that is undoubtedly better and has features no available on the Mosin conversion. I bet the builder has more than that in the Mosin since he has done a really nice job.

You have to have a "why" for such work and that much trouble to make a rifle when new ones can be had for such low prices.

Why? Why would anyone buy reloading equipment and components when there is plenty(was and will be again) of ammo ready made? True reloaded ammo will be cheaper after enough rounds have been loaded to pay for the initial cash layout. Truth is there is nothing like building your own. Cost doesn't play much of part in it.

I like it. That SKS safety is a nice touch. I wonder how good those mounts are.

Because you can is good enough.
Other good reason...

1. Time spent away from wife
2. Money not spent in bars
3. Only one like it factor
4. Working with tools
5. The same reason we played with Lego's as a kid.

The exact reason I messed around with my Rem. 700!! :)

...or the same reason people spend the same price building up a 1911, AR, etc. when they could've bought one for the same price they invested in it.

It's a project. Not everyone has the intention of modifying a gun that much, but once you modify it once, you modify it again...and then you end up with a modified gun that could've been had for the price you put into it.

Easier to take it one step at a time than try to save up (which is sometimes quite hard to do).

My 1952 factory 11 Polish carbine shoots fine in stock condition. The Soviets were practical, if it worked well most of the time and they could make millions in a month, it got adopted. The Polish and Romanian M44 carbines seem a bit better in fit and finish. Accuracy at100 yds is 3-4 inches with whatever ammo is on sale. But when you see them in a wood barrel labelled "your choice $65.00", they all have to come out onto the shop floor for closer examination.;)

Nice work. And as far as the guys over at www.7.62x54r.net they can be downright rude. I have dumped more then the cost of my 10/22 into it making mods and it is fun.

i sure wish i would have read that before ordering a 6.5 vostok reamer & a 28" shilen barrel for my shot out remingtom m91.
i could have just bought a $299 marlin & saved a lot of money.
i guess i'll throw away all my mauser parts too
