    I'm thinking of sporterizing my m44 and am looking for ideas. So lets see your upgraded/sporterized/bubba'd mosins.

    My Babba'd Mosin! Home brew adjustable trigger, threaded and installed AK-74 style muzzle brake (you make some and loose some friends at the range with a muzzle-brake!), scout scope mount (soon to be replaced by better mount) with excellent NcStar 2-7x32 IR Long Eye Releif Scope, ATI synthetic stock with Krylon TAN paint job.

    Is the muzzle break useful at all or is it more for looks? That kinda what i'm going for, it seems more useful in a more modern configuration. I'm not sayin the mosins are not fine as is but......I like to tinker.

    Also when I remove the bayonet do I need to scope it to retain accuracy? 100 yards is about all I need.

    The muzzle brake is extremly effective at making this rifle soft to the shoulder with little muzzle jump but the tradeoff is it's loud to the ears (and people beside you FEEL it). Faster powders optimized for the shorter bbl would cut down on this Mil surp ball ammo has a good 5 gal size fireball / muzzle flash that's pretty impressive when you split it 3 ways!

    Here's my Dad shooting it for the first time...notice the sticky bolt from steel case surplus ammo: http://s124.photobucket.com/albums/p38/jpwilly/?action=view&current=Picture001.flv
