STOCK HAS BEEN SOLD. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST.
Well, I was going to disassemble this thing and spray-paint it silver, since it needs to be painted something and I just wrapped up painting a shower rod (who in their right mind makes a shower rod out of a material that can rust?), but the thought struck me that there might be some folks out there who want the stock in its original white coloration.
This one is barely used and is actually a little upgraded from the original, and sports a COTS Picatinny rail on the carrying handle, rather than the milled-into-the-handle not-quite-Picatinny-rail that the stock originally came with. As you can see, it is one of the white models, it is cut out for the speedbolt modification, though I have not done that to mine yet, and it has the recoil-absorbing spring-loaded buttplate installed as well.
I would be willing to let it go for $275 OBO plus shipping (Mosin-Nagant, scope, scope mount, and ammo not included). The wait list for this one was somewhere in the "nine months" range, so you would certainly be saving yourself a lot of time…
Why am I selling it? Well, on the one hand, I am intrigued by CBRPS‘ newer models, and I think they may actually be what they were intended to be.
On the other hand, this current one comes off as being the alpha model for the current generation he is producing. When putting it together, the bolt holes did not line up, the original optic rail was nowhere near appropriate spec, the material used to make the white paneling is rough and porous on its cut edges (hence my desire to paint it, in order to seal that up), and the spring-loaded buttstock does not work so well with my bony-arsed shoulders. Yeah, I know, hell of a thing to say about something you want to sell, right? However, various people have put about 20 rounds through it, and all agree that the balance and handling is better, the recoil is lessened, and the muzzle rise is lower than your "normal" M-N 91/30.
It is a fun toy, but this particular one has annoyed me enough that it is time to move on.
