took a while to clean it up
also, since it had no collectors value, being a armory refurb, I went through all my Mosin parts and found a pre-war stock, original WW 2 sling and a tall post front sight off a Mosin ex-sniper. This will allow me to shoot at 100 yds without under hold.
you will note the "Russian Splice" on the forend of this pre-war stock. I understand these are rare. The buttstock also is one piece, no toe splice as in the War stocks.
as indicative of the Dragoon, the barrel is 1/2" longer than a 91/30
have only fired it for function in my field, don't know about accuracy yet.

this is the oldest of my Mosins and still functions like the day it was issued in Izhevsk in 1924!!

Wait isn't that a Finnish stock? It's been spliced like one?

Mark, no, it's a pre-war Soviet Mosin 91/30 stock, with a "Russian Splice" and screwed in sling escutcheons.
it was not common for these spliced stocks to have survived the post war armory rebuild program.
the Finns used a different splice pattern.
I have a Finn M39 with a Finn splice also.

That indeed is a cool rig, I've always wanted to find a potbelly stock to build a Mosin on but they are few and far between. I like it a lot.

I saw a 91/30 with one of these pre-war spliced stocks go for $900 on Gun Broker. I think I paid $180 at Big 5 for the original rifle/stock.
the original action (a 1932 Hex) is now in a beautiful laminate stock I purchased from a member of this forum.

I expect to get this trigger project finished this week.
also now have a reproduction PE scope to mount instead of the Vortex.

Mark, my pre-war Mosin 91/30 stock is not what I would call a pot-belly stock, like the Finn stock, but I never noticed before, the belly on the pre-war stocks is deeper than the war stock or post war 91/30 stock. I guess it was to use a smaller stock blank to save on wood. The same reason they toe spliced the Butt on the later stocks. I only have this one pre-war 91/30 stock in my modest collection.

  Hmmmm maybe we should dub those mid life crisis stocks..  


Hehehe That's what sort of threw me off was the depth of the "belly" good observation on yours by the way.
