Mosin Nagant 7.62x54R, Bolt Action, CBRPS aluminum chassis and side panels, Base Price $270
"Due to our philosophy of providing a state of the art stock system for excellent older barrelled actions, we could not ignore the time proven Mosin-Nagant. Our current Mosin Nagant has a bipod notch as an integral part of the chassis (see above), eliminating the need to attach one to the barrel as shown in the adjacent picture (though some swear that accuracy is actually better). The chassis and side panels are aluminum, so it's a bit beefy.
The Mosin Nagant, firing the robust 7.62x54R cartridge, due to the 31-1/2" barrel and phenomenal ballistics characteristics of the cartridge provide an excellent long range rifle well suited for the CBRPS. The stock design utilized to accommodate the long action is reminiscent of anti-tank rifles of WWII and was required to provide the premium length of pull for the trigger hand while nesting the bolt action safely above the shoulder. The overall length is 40" and fits well in a 42" tactical bag. The rifle can be balanced easily with one hand with the CBRPS.
Due to the significant recoil of the 7.62x54R cartridge, our aluminum trunnion is solid, eliminating the standard thumb safety and utilizing our own "drop-safety" system. In the event the rifle is dropped, the actuator rod is barred from engagement by a spring loaded trigger bar. We strongly suggest firing using military posture (elbow perpendicular to the torso so the deltoid muscle engages the butt, not just the shoulder bone) to mollify the recoil.
And for those who perhaps want to do what the Russian Military did in 1938, that is cut 10" inches off the long tapered barrel to produce the carbine version with a 20" barrel, the surprising mid-range accuracy they experienced could be conceivably due to the reduced barrel whip due to relational mass differentials.
Suggested modifications would be to eventually acquire or machine a turned down bolt so that the shooter would be able to keep their eye on target during bolt manipulation. See the unit by JHRobert@charter.net - excellent work. The receiver cover still lifts for stripper clips, but during extraction allows the shooter to stay at rest and on target, which is not available for the straight bolt in it's factory configuration.
With the full floating barrel design inherent in our system, the Limbsaver barrel resonance reducer (www.limbsaver.com) helps limit the amount of barrel whip that the long barrel of the MN is prone to."
Mosin Nagant Rail kits
Base Price $270
"Our next production run will accomodate a picatinny rail option for the MN due to requests from customers, supplying iron to iron sight base connections (see Standard and Spike, below).
Have been watching this company for a while, really want one of their shotgun AK kits and the mosin one just looks cool. They said something to the effect of working the bolt lifts that hinge just enough for it to ride under if using their flat bolt handle.
We will steal the show, Jolly Rogers go. We are wolves of the sea.
My concern is one of fuctionality, that stock from its appearance puts the barrel's line of recoil ABOVE the shoulder this is gonna cause that gun to climb hard and fast on every shot. The whole point of a bull-pup design is to shorten the firearm and make it more stable therefore allowing you to stay on target better. I watched the vid for this thing and checked out their site and to me this thing needs A LOT of work including lowering the barrel, and action, down into line with the shoulder which will help with recoil and in my opinion it will help with sight line for optics and such. I may be way off on this just my thoughts.

actually, if you look at the height of the action compared to standard stock on the carbine or rifle it's at the same height, and more parallel then the military stock witch would help keep recoil MORE in line with your shoulder, not transitioned to your shoulder by the angle of the drop of the stock, witch causes more muzzle rise. this with the fact that center of the mass of the rifle will be moved almost directly to your shoulder should cut muzzle rise a bit, as it does in some rear action .50 BMG turnbolts.
that said, i think i'd sooner lag bolt 9 1919 rails to front of my mosin's and attach a coffee maker, popeye night light, and under barrel batman approved grappling hook launcher then be caught at the range with one of these kits. i blame the survival forums for making people want to turn a perfectly good rifle into something it's not by giving it a cosmetic makeover. i also kinda think that full floating a full length slim rifle barrel would hurt harmonics more then help it, long skinny barrels need to be bedded IMHO............
H-BAR not sure your right about that if you go the site and look at it better you can see that the upper curved back portion is supposed to, according to them rest over the shoulder placing the rear of the action on top of your shoulder instead of into it. I may be wrong on that but that appears to be contoured for the top of the shoulder.

I think they could have done without the hinge check piece. It would have probably been better to just have an opening in it for the arm of the bolt to slide back and forth. It would just be a little harder to load it. Still, I kinda like it and at only that price, it isn't a bad modification if you are into modifying your Mosin. You also don't have to drill and tap anything for a scope or cut up the original rifle OR need to get a bent bolt for a "sniper" scope setup. If I had all the other guns I wanted right now, I would probably get one just to play with it and see how it worked.

Maybe it's just me, but it seems like most of the bad things, that can happen, occur in the area of the receiver and the chamber. I don't think I want to shoot a rifle, that has the receiver positioned next to my head. Therefore, I have very little interest in the bullpup types of modded rifles. Some of the construction is interesting though.
tactical Mosin?? Never thought I hear that in the same sentence. I cant believe that there is company out there that is developing accessories for a 60+ year old russian bolt action rifle that you can buy for 79 dollars at Big 5. If this kit cost less than 60 bucks I guess I would entertain buying one but part of the appeal of the MN's is that you hack it all up doing your own mods an not feel bad about it if you destroy it in process because you only spent 80 bucks to begin.
