Brass Stacker will release a number of new Mosin-Nagant parts and accessories in 2014 according the company’s website. Â Among them are:
- 10 round magazine,
- recoil absorbing butt pad,
- flash hider for shortened and threaded barrels,
- peep sights, and
- steel targets that can handle steel core surplus ammo.
While maintaining a surplus gun in original condition is best for historical preservation, the fact is a lot of people like to sporterize mil-surp guns. Â I do not have a problem with that, but would hope that anyone who starts customizing a gun takes a few minutes to make sure they don’t have anything special or rare. Â For help in identifying what kind of M-N rifle you have, consider picking up the The Mosin-Nagant Rifle, an excellent book on the guns. (Read my review on the book here.)
If you have an interest in doing some customizing work on your Mosin-Nagant, I’d recommend checking out Iraqveteran8888’s channel on YouTube. Â Eric has some great videos on improving and customizing a M-N rifle. Â I’m including a couple of his videos here so you can get an idea of what he is doing.
This is how to do a relatively easy trigger job:
