    Rifle – main weapon of infrantry to destroy enemy with fire, bayonet and buttstock.

    Instruction for Infantry, Rifle 1891-30, 1944


    ... and now you know why your capitalist shoulder hurts.

    At first you thought that making a Chinese sniper went something like this

    [​IMG]

    but is not quiet true.

    After WWII, Soviets figuered out how to make buttload of most glorious three line rifles of Mosin. In fact Izhmash was cranking out 12 thousand a day ... Henry Ford would shit hammer and a sickle, would he known. However, new rifles like SKS and AK (be praised its name) were already in the works.

    Meanwhile in China, Mao calls uncle Joe

    Mao : "Hey broseph, listen, I got this guy from Arkansas keep calling me, telling me Americans want to buy beads and mirrors in exchange for gold. WTF, no one is that dumb. I need some ****ing rifles to defend fatherland."

    Joe: "Ha ha, yeah, what's next, they make a battle rifle out of aluminum? Ha, ha. Yeah, so I got a few of Mosins and I can give you the technology to make them too."

    Mao: "Dude, don't you have something in full auto ... at least semi auto?"

    Joe: "I'll make you a deal you can't refuse: each rifle comes with one free potato masher ... "

    ... well, we all know how that went ...

    [​IMG]


    Comrades ... I give you blueprints of communism and Mosin rifles ...

    [​IMG]


    If you think that T53 – Chinese produced copy of Soviet Mosin rifle is boring and is less traveled ... think again. In fact, if penguins decided to rebel against their capitalist overlords, it would be supplied to all 5 continents. Not only it saw action in the whole of south east Asia, but buttloads of them were shipped to Africa, Latin America and some other places where people yearn for freedom and goat sex.

    [​IMG]

    Manual says: point rifle, receive money

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    These T53s come lightly coated in cosmoline, nothing a man with dirt under his fingernails can't handle. In better cases the cosmoline is 3/4 way turning into amber.

    [​IMG]

    Here is one with a Russian mag plate

    [​IMG]



    ... and some carving that appears to say "Berham" on top and something indescript on the bottom

    [​IMG]

    Once pull the hardware out of the stock, there be more cosmoline

    [​IMG]


    I'm planning on putting a scope on this rifle, and repro side mount + repro scope mount can be had for 120-140 bucks. Unlike capitalist AR monstrosities of "scout" scope mounts, you still have the iron sites to use when your shitty scope breaks.

    The side mount comes with even the drill and tap

    [​IMG]

    slapping it on the side is pretty painless

    [​IMG]

    The stock needs a reliefe carved out. I did mine with a box knife.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    And then we put this ****er together

    [​IMG]

    Is look good

    [​IMG]

    Bolt looks rough out of the box. I guarantee that it will not match any numbers found anywhere else on rifle.

    [​IMG]

    But with little pron and gentle stroking, it cleans nice.

    I "bent" the bolt by cutting handle in half and welding a piece of drill bit handle to make it look 90 degree. Then grind and more porn and sandpaper.

    [​IMG]


    bayonet ... a vital part of this glorious rifle is important. You may find it loose when folded. How the **** are you gonna sneak on some capitalist pig with a rattling bayonet to puncture his ass??? It's easily fixed by dropping a weld on the rubbing surface. You can fix bayonet in under a second by just flicking it out.

    [​IMG]


    Now about ammo. I slugged my T53s and all of them came out to .310 (land) I had some PPU which actually worked out very decent accuracy wise. There are also lighter loads that could be had with 123gr bullets.

    Unfortunately my very expensive, technologically advanced, "lab-rated" Ohaus scale shit the bed after being used only once a year ago.

    [​IMG]

    So I ended up using this scale instead, which despite it being covered in unidentified crap of various stickiness and smell was actually more accurate than the famed Ohaus scales ... just because it worked. The loads were +/- quarter of powder teaspoon.

    [​IMG]


    And this is the reason why your gAyRs will always suck.

    [​IMG]


    I attach cheap scope from China to the mount and find a sling.

    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]


    Is good. Capitalist pig is dead.

    [​IMG]

    Fist bump, bro!

    [​IMG]


    And now mandatory cat pron

    [​IMG]



    if you get offended by communism and anti-American crap coming from the country making iPhones, sneakers and American flags ... report to your commissar for re-education classes in Alaska.

    [​IMG]

    This is your future ... minus the crack pipe

    nicely done! This is the kind of cheap-er project I could use right now. Them German gun builds take consume gobs of time and money.

    Well written as usual, even without the vodka bottle somewhere in the background.
    If Boris did a thread on changing the toilet paper roll, I would subscribe.

    I've got one of these sitting on my bench right now:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/Soviet-Russ...77&rk=2&rkt=10&sd=371092736898#ht_1585wt_1043

    I'm going to install it on one of my $99 91/30s. I sent the bolt away to this guy to have it bent:

    http://www.ebay.com/itm/25154194704...2649&ssPageName=STRK:MEBIDX:IT#ht_1263wt_1281

    It was back to me within a couple of days, and it looks great.

    Once I get the mount installed, I will decide which one of my scopes to throw on it. I have a Leupold on my 30-30 that looks kind of ridiculous, so I might take that off and use it. It will also look ridiculous on a Mosin, but I can live with that.

    I'll take some pictures when I get working on it.

    I won't clog up Boris' thread with a ton of pictures, but here are a couple shots of my hackage. The scope is a Simmons 4X that I believe I paid about $16 for. It probably won't be the permanent solution.

    Very cool. But, is your cheek even touching the stock with that super high scope?

    It is pretty damn high. The side of my chin touches the stock.

    Well done Boris. I am glad to see that you took the advice of many long range shooters and spent more on the scope than the rifle.
