Prelim inlet complete in mockup position... I really like the look... but have trepidation in drilling into that handle to reinforce it even if I epoxy the heck out of then.. ... hmmmm

Anybody done a one shot Mosin before and modified the stock to make it work well? Ideas would be appreciated! I like the way it looks with this trigger guard and if its going to be my match target shooter.. and a mag popping out of the bottom kinda cramps the look... maybe I could try my hand at a 3 round mag conversion.. and fit it in.... am I nuts.. a mad hatter? lol

Here is a project that Pat over on SRF did with a Mosin/Suhl stock. If you look further down the page you can see what he did... scrapped the magazine entirely and used the rear action screw upside-down through the sear screw hole.

Good luck on your project, I'm looking forward to seeing it come together!! :thumbup:

Mark,
Thanks for the link.. I do remember seeing that once.. but at the time.. didn't grasp that change in the action screw locations.. something to consider.

as for the stock if that is what you are asking that guy from GA is still selling a few of the Suhl stocks on Ebay.. I think there is one or two listed out there now.

Farmboy,
I actually just stripped the stock this week so the project is thawing from the cold finally. I have a few changes I plan to do to the stock and add a mosin crossbolt for strength. I only hope I can maker look as beautiful as she was.. she has some nice looking grain features and I plan to try a pine tar type finish after I rebuild the interior with epoxy for a proper inlet job. I will start out with a single shot rifle but I think I might be able to construct some small internal mag to hold a few rounds, the tricky think would making a spring work or building a small mag box. That is where I am at the moment.. too many projects...
