I removed the rear sight ramp. was a pain to do. placed a new scope back that locks on to the dove tail.

fitted the to new stock and rifle together.

now just have to figure out a forearm cap for the new stock, refinish, and do any other mods I need to.

I have been really busy lately. my wife has been keeping busy. finally got a chance to get to work on my nagant stock.

first the nose piece.
glued and nailed three small pieces of wood to the end of the cut area of the stock

I cheated, I used a hand sander (has a

pressure gauge) and 60grit, and carefully shaped the three pieces. added two more to the end of the whole thing, cut a barrel channel (doing a sports rifle conversion to my nagant Icon_eek) only a inch but looks good.

start of the cheek piece. lot of shaping to go on it.

I am going to use wood putty on the whole nose pieces and doing a little more shaping too. going to try my handed at laminating the stock. either could not find wait I wanted or find something that I wanted to use locally so I ordered some.

little update.

used bondo on the end cap to help smooth it out. also bedded the action, waiting for some 10mil tape to come in to bed the barrel.  going laminate the stock. so no refinishing the stock.

I love the mosin, such a solid rifle and cheap to shoot and own. Mounting a scope the right way however can get a little costly.

I modded my scope mount and a little of the dove tail to make my mount more solid. have not got it out to shot yet. wanting to finish these stock.

the mod
cut a slot in the bottom of the mount to allow a screw to run thru the dove tail.
made a divot where the locking screw for the base goes. nothing really too hard.

I love my Mosin. Some day I would love to convert one over to an Arch Angel stock. I always thought it was a respectful and effective rebuild.
