    That's...that's a lot of money to spend customizing a $100.00 rifle.

    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.

    Whats wrong with corrosive, other than it needs to be cleaned more extensivly?

    Actually, I don't hate it. It's speaking to me on some level. It doesn't rile me up nearly as much as efforts to Remchesterize surplus rifles. At least this is really something different and interesting, as crazy as it seems. Though it may be illegal.

    Stupid. An insult to the wood and original design of the rifle. Oh well glad its his, not mine.

    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.

    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:

    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.

    Umm, I kinda like it. If I was doing a movie and I needed to give the bad guy's henchman a super-freaky weapon I might just go with the Mosin-Noir.

    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:

    You would need to add "the thing that goes up" to really scare her with it though.

    Should, but based on the information I have, I still don't like the idea of it or the look of it.
