Bolt relocation, bolt knob, 2 piece scope mount

Postby nasty_nagant » Wed May 10, 2017 7:37 pm

I did some work for my best friend in December. It was for Christmas. All I told him was that I was going to do something with the bolt handle. I had given him my old ATI handle years ago.

I started by notching the receiver behind the stripper clip guide. I then machined a piece of round stock with an OD to match the front of the receiver. I cut a piece and shaped and fit it to the area and welded it in. I had to notch the inside to clear the bolt. The scope mounts are actually two front Mouser mounts. I had to shorten and angle one then drill and counterbore it.

When I asked him what kind of bolt knob he wanted all he said was "big". It is 15/16" dia and 3" long.

Thank you,
My buddy has not put a scope on it yet. I will when he is here for a visit at the end of the month and will then test my work. He said he loves the bolt location and gets lots of comments every time he takes it to the range. I also did some work on the trigger and sear engagement which help greatly.

If I can ever get another Mosin worth modding I am doing this. I think its really worth while.

I have one that is ready for the move. How hard was it welding the bolt on?

I have a TIG welder so it was not hard at all. The tricky part is jigging it firmly in place for tacking. I used a 1/16" electrode and tacked it in place without filler then used filler to weld it up.
