Hi, new guy here, thought that I would give you a look at one of my Mosins.
It is a 1932 Tula hex in a Tapco T-6 SKS stock, Choate AK pistol grip, Choate SKS scope mount, Bushnell 6x24 Banner scope, Finn style sear spring work, turned down bolt handle, CAA cheek rest and a Smith and Wesson I-Bolt recoil reducer in the buttstock tube.
This rifle shoots well and groups nicely, I really enjoy shooting this rifle.

How much did you need to mod that stock to get it to work? That's an awesome job..

I filled part of the mag well, machined the rear for the tang and to let the bolt pass over. The action is pillar bedded on steel pillars and the barrel is floated. Not a super hard conversion, any one could do it if they wanted to. CMD

[This is my 1941 Izhevsk/Izhmash with a round receiver. After shooting it a few times I found that a few changes were needed. I removed to forward upper hand stock, cut the stock down, removed the front sight, and replaced the rear sight with a scope mount that worked with the 3/8 dovetail that is cut into the barrel. I then carved a wood pistol grip and attached it with dowel pins in the stock. I am thinking that more changes are in the future as this one maybe not done yet.

Sorry I tried to get the Pics in and failed will work on it

I have the pics.. Thanks Mr. Elkhunter

I have tried to keep this as close to stock as possible. Still have all the pieces and can convert it right back. It's a Darrell Scout Scope mount which is tight as they come. No constant re zeroing needed. Kept all the rear sight parts I needed to remove to put in the mount. A BSA red dot scope and somebody bought a plastic ATI stock for their Mosin and sold me that beautiful blond laminated stockstock. Pretty much does everything I expected, ease of acquisition and reacquisition of target.

It's a repro. I can send you a link if you like. I recommend getting one of there latest ones. They have higher quality MOA nobs.
