Wow man that looks pretty good. What kind of stock did you use and have you put a scope on it yet?

My page has changed, so I decided to group all of my Nagant Project posts into this post:

The ATI Monte Carlo Stock


The 1943 Mosin Nagant


The UTG LoPro BiPod I'm Using So Far


Nagant Disassembly


Test Fitting Parts


Mosin Nagant Reassembly


Final Assembly, A Problem With the ATI Stock, and Some Good Tips If You Have Feeding/Chambering Issues



This is what my OP should have looked like from the start. Hope this is helpful!

Looks just like mine, except the bipod. ATI makes a quality product. Have you shot it with the scope mounted yet? I think you're going to be disappointed with the accuracy, and man, that scope looks like overkill. I think you might find that it's set back too far to have your cheek on the stock properly, but i might be wrong. How does it feel? It honestly would have been a better Idea to spend the money on a Remington 770, as they come with a mounted scope for under $350 and out of the box most are under MOA accuracy. I think I'm gonna pull the scope and mount off and use it with Iron sights.

They are great guns for the price though. Tough as hell.

I bought one at Sears in 1963. It set me back $13.20 including tax and 50 rounds of military ammo... I called in the order and picked up at the mail order counter at the local store with none of the hassle that you get today and I was 13 years old at the time... Five years later I was being shot at by snipers equipped with the ChiCom carbine version.. It is a very simple weapon that is virtually impossible to jam... It was used by Russian Olympic Marksmen to win the 1000 meter competition at the 1960 Winter Olympics... There is no pressed steel parts on those rugged, dependable combat rifles.

I would also recommend that if you plan on using the safety, you cut a washer or better yet a chain link in half and weld it onto the rear of the bolt to make it easier to manipulate. I haven't done it to mine because I don't use the safety. I might do it later though.

I paid $105 for mine, came with the bayonet, ammo pouch, oil can and belt. Pretty sweet deal for a shootable rifle.

The tins of surplus ammo are an awesome deal, but beware as most are corrosive. And when you're zeroing in the scope, I'd suggest using some new quality lead core ammo, as the majority of the surplus stuff is steel core, and due to the manufacturing quality of it, some of the steel cores are not perfectly centered in the bullet. Good stuff for the price though.

I think it is one of the best buys out there.. I'm into war relics opposed to sporting type firearms because the government has a separate category for them and sees them more as collector pieces... I am considering getting a Henry lever action .44 magnum for use in the wooded area where I live... We have a lot of deer on the place when the wild hogs don't run them off... I'm old and have trouble getting around so I need something lighter and shorter than my Garand... The .44 magnum Henry would be the first new rifle I've ever bought that wasn't a .22. If I lived on the High Plains where you can see for miles a Mosin Nagant like the way yours is set up would be ideal.

What you have done looks great, I enjoy shooting my 1913 new england westinghouse mosin nagant. I would not blue the bolt, it may cause problems down the road..



Westinghouse... Very cool.

I had a Remmington many moons ago.

The cases of Russian ammo we had were ancient and said the round was effective
for antiaircraft fire out to 2300 meters.

The NRA was given the American made Mosin Nagants not shipped to the Czar to auction off I believe in the 1930s for $3.00 a piece for members... Owning one of those would be like owning a Canadian made Browning High Power made for the Chinese by John D. Englis during WW2... It's a cool pistol with a shoulder stock/ holster and rifle sights but is made on the inch scale instead of metric so the parts from the Belgium made High Powers won't interchange.
