To all those arseholes who whinge about other people spending those other people’s money to have fun building their own rifles, I have only this to say: 

Bite me.

still for sale: cbrps white standard mosin-nagant stock


Since neither person who was supposedly interested in the White Standard CBRPS Mosin-Nagant stock I have for sale ever bothered to respond to emails, the stock is still for sale, and still at $275 OBO.

If you are interested, leave a comment here, or email me at "linoge (at) wallsofthecity (dot) net".

I know you know someone for whom this would make an awesome […]

the mobile infantry version of the zip gun

I do not really know what it is. I do not have a clue what I would use it for (though I do know I would not spend $200 for a tax stamp on a $200 gun… probably). And I genuinely have no idea what market they are aiming at.

But good Lord I want one:

No, the video is not all that useful, and, yes, the whole "operators, welcome" tagline is… […]

for sale: cbrps white standard mosin-nagant stock


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. […]

they’re (almost) heeeeere

You have seen me write about this… well… a lot, but the time may be finally upon us – supposedly all of the parts and necessary materials have arrived at the shop, and supposedly my CBRPS Mosin Nagant Stock is entering its final stage of production.

However, if you want one for yourself, they have opened a new ordering period, probably until the 5th of December, and possibly until the 15th of January (hard […]

here for the duration

I tell you what – bullpup firearms may be a questionable idea with dubious ergonomics (or not, depending on your perspectives), but they are definitely catching on.

Aside from the Kel-Tec KSG (which is not a conversion kit) and the Neostead (which is also not a conversion kit, and was pumped "backwards"), this is one of the few bullpup-configuration pump-action shotguns still produced, kit or otherwise, and it offers a few intriguing features, including […]

polishing a… something

Regular readers might recall that I put in my order for my CBRPS Mosin-Nagant bullpup kit back in March, and according to the webpage, it might be being assembled in the very near future*.

Well, since then, I have been discovering some very interesting things… First, courtesy of Erin, I found that those 10-round Mosin-Nagant magazines I wrote about a while back might be nearing production. Or, at least, the concept works, he now […]

grabbing the bullpup by the horns

Just a helpful reminder for any other twisted individuals who would be interested in such things: the ordering period for the Mosin-Nagant CBRPS bullpup kit has opened, and Mr. Rolfe now has two variants available for your consumption, along with the options for setting up the stock to accept a speed bolt (warning: the turnaround on those bolts is 10 to 12 weeks), and installing a “coil spring loaded sensed recoil reducing butt” (not exactly […]

just a few differences

So maybe I am not completely insane…

Next month, I plan on purchasing a 91/30 Mosin-Nagant from the usual source (though if anyone has any better suppliers, feel free to speak up).

The following month, I plan on purchasing a Center Balanced Rifle Platform System kit for said M-N 91/30, assuming it is still offered (there is some question as to how the company is going to proceed).

A few months after […]

get your bullpup on

For those folks out there who, like me, have a very sudden and deep infatuation with Center Balanced Rifle Platform Systems‘ bullpup configurations of various rifles (including Saiga 12s, Remington 597s, Mossberg 702s, Mosin Nagant 91/30s, SKS, and AK-47 clones), you had better get your bank account sorted out – you will be able to order the AK-47 Standard and Saiga 12 Shotgun Spike models form November 1-15, and the Remington 597 model from January […]

just too cool

A bullpup Mosin Nagant? I irrationally want one in ways that are probably illegal in some states.

‘Course, there is a great deal to be said for a full-length, bullpup-ed Saiga shotgun as well… but something about taking a 119-year-old design and slapping it in a brand-spanking-new aluminium body, especially when that body is a bullpup design for a bolt-action, integral-magazine rifle… yeah, that appeals to just about every single firearm-related quirk I have.
