Dragunov PSL/SVD stock for my 91/30 Mosin Nagant......
« on: August 28, 2008, 12:57:43 AM »
....is what I want. Now, I know, there's no such thing commercially available. Are there any links out there that you can recommend that describes the steps in carving a custom designed stock from scratch? I've got a table saw, drills, belt sander and a router. What I'm looking at doing is designing and carving an SVD/PSL inspired stock in either oak, walnut or maple. I've already done the ATI scope mount/bent bolt conversion on the rifle. I've looked at the ATI black plastic stock and it really doesn't do much for me. I really like the idea of a bolt action Dragnov style rifle with a high quality, finely finished wood stock..... :grommit: :grommit:

Sounds pretty cool. Maybe get a dragnov stock of some kind and then fit it to a mosin stock?

Interesting idea.  I suppose you could try "skeletonizing" an existing 91/30 stock to look more moderm and add a contemporary buttpad/plate etc.
Grafting on an existing stock or using it as somewhat of a template may help.  Certainly a big difference in LOP between an AK and a 91/30 as this pic illustrates.
Sounds like a great project.  Good Luck. :lol:

If you want something like a PSL/Drag stock but without having to alter anything yourself then maybe one of these?







I am still seriously considering the second one down, its called the prone-culbertson. There are lots of different stock styles to choose from and they do inletting for Mosins/Mausers/etc.
