    Remington Mosin Nagant. Gov. cut down cadet rifle? & My plans to un-sporterize it.

    I have an old Remington Mosin Nagant thats been cut down. From the bit of reading I've done on it, I think it might have been cut down by the government and used as a cadet training rifle. I don't know this for a fact but it measured about right as described and it has Izhevsk bolt and magazine. Apparently the firing pins were clipped and the followers removed from the Remington magazines to render them incapable of firing, along with the cut down barrel. My rear leaf spring sight has been removed, filled and ground flush to the barrel and my stock has been cut down and the cleaning rod hole filled and sanded down. A cheap old aluminum front sight was added to it and a dovetail was cut into the hex receiver and a pop up standard rear rifle sight driven in.

    My thoughts and potential plans with this rifle are to possibly retrofit M44 gear onto it seeing as it is already desecrated. I'd like to get an M44 stock with handguard, folding bayonet, chop off that awful front aluminum sight and replace with an M44 front sight, remove the rear sight and replace with a rear leaf spring sight.



    What do you all think?

    I doubt it's a cadet training rifle with an Izhevsk bolt and magazine. These were made by the US Government for US cadets due to the shortage of 03 Springfields. They were cut to Springfield length. All parts would be original Remington parts.

    Not that Bubba couldn't have gotten a hold of it and tried to make it functional with Russianicon parts.

    Sounds like an interesting project. Photos would be nice to see as you progress.

    My grandfather bought it at an estate auction with me when I was younger for 35 dollars. It fires and the bore is clean and in amazing shape as if it never saw use. I can't see why else someone would put an Izhevsk bolt and mag on it. As far as pictures of it, I can try to take a few. My phone takes awful pics though.
