Since Mosin Nagant rifles are so cheap and plentiful, they often become the first project rifles of “garage gunsmiths”. As odd looking as this stock /chassis system is, I do have to praise the fact that it doesn’t modify the rifle permanently. You just remove the barreled action from the original stock and drop it into the custom. The cheek weld looks uncomfortable with that high scope mount. I’ve stated it before but I’m a purist for the most part when it comes to surplus stuff.
