    I would like the gun if the triggerguard was "normal" and it didn't have that thing for a buttplate. Also, it would have been nice if they could have not put in the studs and blued the new metal to match.

    In other words - just a normal springfield with the capability to use a BAR mag

    I'd take it...and fix it. The mag is kind of neat. I wonder if that works?

    Funny thing is, that danged thing will probably still run. They might not be refined, but you gotta respect the Soviet weapon systems......

    These rifles were notorious for needing repairs often due to the fact that after firing a magazine, the shooter had to take the rifle by the muzzle, and with a screaming leap, smash it on the ground and proceed to bodysurf into the crowd of onlookers

    PRD wins the kewpie doll. A Ross rifle. Since everyone loved it so much, I am posting more pictures from the auction site. Be quick - the bidding is up to $5.50.

    The wood to metal fit is.... creative.

    The close-ups of the very poor wood finishing job, badly marred barrel, and rusty action are mildly nauseating.

    At least it's probably chambered in the ever popular .303

    Not only that...

    but, from the photo of the left side of the rifle, it appears that the stock must have been originally intended for a Krag.
    All it really lacks for the Red Green touch is .... duct tape.

    I like it. It's the perfect home defense rifle...one look at it would send even the most hardened, heartless serial killer on the planet down the street at a dead run, screaming like a cat being fed into a wood chipper.

    That rifle does in fact work. The receiver is made from a shovel.

    I think it is an ak that a guy made from a shovel. I saw a write up of this done by the builder/owner a while back. Took the shovel and beat it flat, folded it up to build the receiver, used the handle as the stock. May be a different gun patterned off of that one. It was an amusing write up.

    what someone (a Canuck, I hope) did to a Ross military rifle. Probably one of Red Green's fellow lodge members, under the influence of 'strange brew'.
    'I am a man, but I can change, if I have to, I guess.' NO DUCT TAPE defenatly not red green it would have been duck tape together

    In the absence of duct tape there would at least have to be bailing wire or re-purposed fence wire as an indicator of the "Red Green" influence. Or - if the stock were made from a canoe paddle.

    One of us should buy that thing and lovingly restore it to its former glory.
    Wouldn't that be satisfying?

    I love it! Simpy because it's such a departure from the norm; I think it's awesome :)

    I was amazed - this "thing" sold for $130 in the auction.
