Mosin Magic Part 6 - The Saga Continues

Time marches on, and so do innovations of technology. The SHOT show is one of those gatherings of goodness for those who love firearms. Unfortunately I was not in attendance, but many who were posted videos online allowing us some idea of what was there.

One of those innovations is the Archangel Mosin-Nagant stock.
Here it is on the M44.

Now that is nice! I look forward to reading some reviews on it once it is released for sale.

It seems that I overlooked the bolt when discussing modifications to install a scope. eBay yields up several bolt bending services which will benefit you even if you do not add a scope, both moving the bolt closer in proximity to the stock and adding leverage by lengthening the bolt handle. In addition to having your bolt modified, you can also have a "Safety Ring" added which will allow you to more easily engage the cumbersome safety should you choose not to go with a Timney Trigger. All this work can be done for $38.00!!!! Here is the listing.

 Here is a YouTube video showcasing some of his work.

Now while searching on eBay for "Stuff", I came across this new scope mount. It is so new that it has no catchy name given to it yet. It replaces the rear sight base and affords 8 mounting locations. It is a Weaver style with a machined in non-adjustable open sight for 100 yards. Compared to it's competition, it seems reasonably priced at $45.00 including shipping.

Now, since we have mentioned modifying the safety, lets look at the other option which I readily found. It is much more expensive, but it is not a permanent mod. I am talking about the Brass Stacker Cocking Knob Safety Pull Ring. At $48.00 it is a much more expensive option than the eBay offering, but I like its design better. It comes in black or polished finish.

I am glad to see all these new products for the Mosin, helping these inexpensive war-horses live yet a longer life amongst the appreciative Gun owners of America.
