    I have been using my mosin for hunting and take it sometimes on hikes. My question is..

    Does anyone know where i can find a folding stock for my mosin? It would be much easier to carry if it had a folding stock.

    In the spirit of cheap mosins... Cut the stock, buy some piano hinge and an eye hook latch, you're good to go! :approve:

    Having used folding stocks on my Rem 870 shotgun and SKS rifle, I find them uncomfortable (even painful!) to shoot, rather wobbly, and seem too flimsy to last long under heavy use. I'd pass.
    If you need a shorter handier weapon, think pistol caliber carbine, or a bullpup style stock.
    Of course, all options have their pros and cons.

    Honestly, a folding stock would be a waste of money for a Mosin. If your heart is set on it, then sure, but if you have a carbine, or even a 91/30, it only takes 2 screws to break it down. You can use a carbine, or the 91/30 in a carbine stock, sans handguard. Brake it down and store in a canvas rifle bag for the hike. Get to drop camp and in a few minutes its back to a usable rifle.

    I feel you should at least let people know this is illegal in the U.S. There are some who do not know the laws, and without a caveat, you may encourage them to make one. Folks.... you can not cut a rifle barrel down to below 16", and make a rifle into a pistol by shortening it.

    I'm sorry, but if you just blindly do anything you see on the internet without researching legality, my saying you ought not to do it probably won't influence you... People are responsible for making their own decisions. Just because you've seen something on the internet doesn't make it a bright idea.

    Problem is that people don't do the research, or have no idea what to look up.
    They see a photo like that and say. " I can do that!"
    and when people see it on the net, they think, well someone had it...must be OK. That is why it does not hurt to let people know, that guys, this is illegal in most areas!

    There is nothing illegal about that firearm and you CAN cut a rifle down below 16". You must register it as an SBR and pay an ATF tax beforehand though. I am pretty sure the fee is $200.

    As it pertains to the Federal Government...

    NOT ILLEGAL...Making weapons from a rifle or shotgun...NOT ILLEGAL

    ATF Form 5320.1, "Application to make and Register a Firearm"

    ATF Online - Firearms - Guides - Identification of Firearms

    Too expensive for my taste....
    A $100 Mosin and $200 NFA stamp to create massive fireballs?

    But a Mad Max Shotgun would be cool!

    I'fe always wanted to make the obrez..not practical. But different..I guess it would be classified as a nfa short barrel rifle. But I would have to find one with a damaged barrel or beater so I don't offend the purists :)

    Shot my 91/30 approaching dusk, huge fireball...

    Imagine the fireball!!! I'd definitely like to see it in action.

    Rifles are defined as a rifled barrel firearm designed to be fired from the shoulder, and this was a Mosin Nagant rifle.

    Since it is no longer a rifle and we all know Mosins are rifles...

    Is it now a Nagant?

    I had a cat with no legs once... It fell into a ditch, so I named it Phil.
