    Mosin Nagant to Pro Mag Archangel

    As much as I wanted to like my Mosin Nagant, I had to modernize it.




    Much of the work was just removing the internals of the Mosin, and removing the pins from the leaf sights. Everything else was pretty much a drop in evolution.

    Pro Mag Archangel body, Texas Precision Muzzle Break, Timney trigger, Brass Stacker Rail, and a long eye relief UTG scope with lighted reticle.

    The muzzle break takes the bite out of the recoil.

    The Timney trigger makes a world of difference in feel of the trigger.

    The Brass Stacker doesn't require a rifle to be drilled and tapped, nor does it require a bent bolt.

    I needed about 9-10" of eye relief given the forward position of the scope.

    Finally completed. I have a bipod coming in tomorrow.

    Interested to hear how well it functions. I read some bad reviews about feeding problems with the mags supplied for those stocks and decided to just get a traditional type composite sporter stock from ATI.

    I've got 3 of them and I'm going to have the barrel cut down to 18" and threaded for a muzzle brake/comp for a scout rifle type setup with one of them.

    Very Nice! Seen them at the range all the time but never modernized. Best of luck with it and good shooting!
