If you know anything at all about Erin Palette, it is probably that she has a Mosin Nagant rifle that she has slowly and surely been customizing in a way that is sure to make purists all manner of… shall we say ‘annoyed’. Most recently, she has gone and shoved a 10-round magazine into it, because ten rounds is better than five. Obviously.
However, whilst teasing us with the prospect of her upcoming review, [...]
Alright, I am officially not a fan of North Carolina. Since moving to this state…
- My DSLR has broken (refuses to auto-focus). – My printer has died (printer head went kaput, and those cost more than printers). – My new-to-me Land Rover Defender’s engine detonated for no apparent reason. – My desktop’s video cards are exhibiting all the classic symptoms of spontaneously combusting in the near future (no, I do not overclock, and yes, [...]
STOCK HAS BEEN SOLD. THANK YOU FOR YOUR INTEREST.
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 [...]
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. [...]
… to help out a little sister. Sorry, that pun was just sitting there, and no one else seemed to want to use it…
Anywise, Erin is… well… interesting, and proudly so. She is an unapologetic goth, a freelance writer, a lover of My Little Pony (which I had no idea still existed until I started reading her), a diehard paper-and-pencil RPG player… oh, and she shoots Mosin-Nagants in her spare time and bitchslaps [...]
The first because it would be funny to show up to an indoor, pistol-only range with a Mosin-Nagant (though something tells me the resulting explanation might take a while), and the second, well, just because (though I understand there are concerns over the pressures in the heavily-loaded 7.62×25 round … welding … the insert into the chamber). I wonder how hard it would be to get the latter machined out [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
I will admit – my desires to turn my Mosin-Nagant into something that looks like a prop out of Star Wars is a little out there (and the kit is probably being built right now, after only a few months of waiting… of course I am not impatient!); however, no matter what I do to my Ruskie boomstick, it will never be as awesome as this.
Go on. Click through. Sure, it has been [...]
Personally, if it came time to defend my property from an unruly, violent, and destructive mob of thugs, I would probably reach for something a bit more… capable… than a bolt-action rifle with all of five rounds in the magazine, but it obviously worked:
Roger MacBride says that he’s used to looking out for trouble in his old Northeast neighborhood. But usually the problems involve prostitutes or drug addicts, and he says that he [...]
What I plan on doing to my Mosin-Nagant could be politely described as "bastardization" (though, to my credit, it makes no permanent alterations to the firearm).
What these two mad gunsmiths are doing to their Mosin-Nagants could only be described as "pure genius":
Over the last week, after collecting the required parts and tooling we began our attempt to convert a Mosin-Nagant action to fire .45-70 Govt cartridges. Eventually this will be made into [...]
No daily photography today… too busy setting this up, taking it, and editing it. Certainly not Oleg Volk quality, but I like it…
Considering the other dastardly things I am planning on doing to my defender of the motherland, this should surprise no one – if Datamancer ever starts producing his now-patent-pending-pending 10-round Mosin-Nagant magazines on any scale that makes them borderline affordable, I am totally snagging one. Hey, if you are going to assemble a positively ludicrous firearm, you might as well go all-out, right?
And, yes, it does work.

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 [...]
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 [...]
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 [...]
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.
