Target Rifle Out Of Mosin Nagant?

Recommended Posts

I have gotten a BAD case of Target rifle fever.

Has anyone here ever made a target rifle [with a heavy barrel,micrometer rear/front globe sights,target style stock] out of a Mosin Nagant receiver?

Greetings, mohctep-

 

Welcome to the forum.

 

If you ever get serious about a target rifle, try MT Guns.

 

I have it on good authority they're pretty knowledgeable on target rifles.

do a search on the finnish TKIV 85 sniper rifle & the finnish model 28-66 target rifle, there are also russian biathlon versions & army match versions. valmet made a adjustable trigger for the mosin nagant, i'm tring to locate one for my heavy barrel mosin project.

Holy Smokes!

You guys build some really AWESOME rifles around here! :D

Except for having target sights instead of a scope,that is pretty much what I would love to do someday.

First I will have to come up with the $$ to complete my target mauser project-but it never hurts to dream about future plans huh?

id like to see that trigger it might be the last bit of arm twisting i need to buy a couple mosins

they are very hard to find outside of finland. it took me at least 6 months to find out it was valmet that made them & i still haven't found one for sale or any idea of where to get one yet.

some of the romainian 91/30's also have a different trigger & sear that adjustable, i've had no luck locating one of those either.

for the safety i'm trying to find a picture of one a finn m27 that was modified to take a mauser safety so i can see how it was done. i'm also studying the greek ms 1903/14 safety to see if it can be adapted to a mosin because their bolts are very similar

The following images were taken from the old board. No idea who did the work.

 

The sear was modified, and it was also used as the bolt stop. That's supposed to be a no-no.
