The Official SOCAMO Modded Mosin Thread

Postby 0933 » Wed Jul 24, 2013 8:04 pm

OK guys, please post a picture or two of your rifles...

Let's not get out of hand, so I'll lay down a few rules.

I'd like this to be a collective thread, and not so much about one particular rifle. So one rifle per post please. If you have your build documented, please post a link to that thread... Feel free to include your rifles stats too.

Lets see 'em guys! 8-)
