After reading Thomas berkey’s “world war 2 rifle stock refinish ” , he did such a nice job that I was motivated to take a few pictures of the one I sporterized.
I made a cherry stock, wenge fore tip, made and welded a new bolt, manufactured a scope mount, fashioned a more hunter friendly safety, sling mounts and shortened the barrel.
The stock was all cut by hand, and checkered by hand as well.
Its a 7.62×54 Russian Mosin Nagant from 1955.
