While I believe that if its yours you should be able to do what you want with it, I am also one who believes that a person should have respect for the history of a firearm. Now that being said, it's not like he took an original, matching numbers WWII Luger and bubba'd it. It's just a Mosin. Personally I think it's the coolest MN I have ever seen. But I agree that it needs better glass. Just fantastic work man. I would be proud to own that weapon.
