Just thought I'd share one the projects I'm working on off and on.

She is made from two 91/30 receivers which were torch cut, ground to dimension and then re assembled with the use of a tig welder and a jig.

Her barrel is around 4.5 inches (less than 2 inches of riffling) and is threaded to AK specification.

Still quite a ways to go before she has her broomhandle grip etc. but she is to the point where we can use her to make some rather beautiful fireballs.

Are you assuming that the receiver(s) having been torch-cut gets past the issue of a <26" "firearm made from a rifle" problem?

Nice looking work, than you for sharing the pictures. I would love to see it fire!

For the sake of this concept, let's just not spoil this thread by turning it into a legal paperwork discussion. Assume that unless the OP specifically states otherwise that he has already completed whatever requirements there are. Perhaps move it to the NFA section and add a disclaimer at the bottom?

I just want to see where this thing goes and what it looks like when the OP gets it finished. :evil:

The receivers were de-milled Per BATFE spec, with 1/4 inch of material being removed with each pass of the oxy acetylene torch.

the remnants (now no longer a firearm) were cleaned up with grinder, and the overlapping segments of two receivers were welded back together on a jig.

Its 100% legal. same as any re-weld which conforms to the BATFE regulations on receiver destruction.

O'Brez; is that like an Irish thing? ;)

Looks sick. Lemme know if you need a good plastic surgeon after touching the first round off :D

It'd be cool if there was a way to get a "Thompson Contender" (for lack of a better term) pistol grip to help with the ergos. You could still have a foregrip, too. But I guess it wouldn't quite be an Obrez at that point...:(

It actually has zero recoil... Just massive concussion from the muzzleblast

Zero recoil? Must be one hell of a muzzlebreak you have on there.

The AMD65 muzzlebreak is the same type of brake I used in my FBP16 project

It works amazingly well on 7.62x54R guns.

I don't manufacture firearms for sale or do any custom gunsmithing.

the only 07FFL I know of that has a set of jigs to reweld mosins into pistols and the licencing nececary for comercial sale is PRKarms in Fresno. (their operations manager and I have a friendly rivalry with regard to sawed off mosin's)

Ajax do you live in the central valley? I would be happy to offer my services to test the recoil claims for our fellow highroaders.

That's some sick stuff right there. The muzzle blast fills the entire frame and moves the target in the next lane! LOL Sick stuff alright but cool...

I shoot a M/N shorty and I am amazed at the total lack of recoil compared to my carbine.

I have to ask,are you shooting full house loads ?.

Yep.... commercial Winchester ammo....

I've run heavy ball surplus through it... bigger flash/fireball.... still zero kick....

Would not want to be in the lane next to that flame thrower. the concussion alone must be uncomfortable to say the least.

what are the ballistics like? I know its a range toy but just curious with a short barrel how fast that projectile still scoots? I live in shotgun and pistol area for hunting and that looks like blast!

When buying barreled actions, mark pistol in the appropriate box on the bill of sale, then you can build pistols out of em.............

Hrm... Ajax and his Obrez are in California. Lots of wild fires in California...

Correlation or causation?

I've had keyholing using too long a bullet is some guns. Wonder if loading the 7.62X54r with a shorter pistol bullet , and maybe reducing the load a bit, might help it stabilize better?

Had a skinny aquaintence some time back who had a cut-down .30 cal Carbine inherited from his predecessor. Why the 'scope on a cut-down?

Okay, I'm totally splitting wood that way from now on! Probably do a couple at a time with that blunderbuss...
Hey, it doubles as a phase plasma pulse-rifle in the 40W range, too:D

LOL @ milk jug coup-de-grace (with soothing music in the background:D). You're really making me question my decision to rebarrel the Steyr M95 in 45-70 instead of 50 Alaskan...:uhoh:

What camera is that--first Youtube slo-mo I've seen in a while that actually looks good :)

Its a casio exlim ex-f1

Set up on an old oconner 50 fluid head and a heavy dury vintage tripod.

The camera is light, but the overall setup has a LOT of mass, so muzzleblast does not rock the camera
