An update for you on the Monster Mosin Project. This will continue to be a multi-part video of the progress made to modernize the Mosin Nagant. However, my initial direction to create a cost effective, efficient, sniper/hunting rifle, has been adjusted. With some new options that have been recently developed I have decided to take this project in a different direction and create “in my opinion” the ultimate Monster Mosin Nagant instead of the original plan to do a basic “budget” build. The Mosin Nagant is an extremely inexpensive Russian surplus rifle, but with the release of the new Archangel Mosin Nagant Stock a new design level has been made available. So even though the direction has changed, I still hope to achieve an inexpensive, reliable, and accurate rifle, that is easy to maintain, but is also fun and effective to shoot. The Archangel Stock has given me an opportunity to do so in a direction that will produce a rifle MUCH more appropriate to my tastes. This will require a bit more expense, (therefore its not so much a “budget” build anymore) but it will be what I want, they way I want it, the first time around.

In the video I refer to the “Timmens” trigger group. The “correct” name is Timney and you can find it here : http://www.timneytriggers.com/index.php?option=com_wrapper&view=wrapper&Itemid=45
I will be using a Max Shepard Bolt that you can find here : http://maxshepherdboltproducts.com/
Barrel Work, Site Removal, and Scope Mount installation will be handled by Roscoe World which can be found here : https://sites.google.com/site/roscoeworld/home/mosin-nagant-trigger
