    Ross M1910 Pump Action conversion

    I have bought this very unique conversion in Finlandicon. While not necessarily collectible, I liked it mainly for the unique craftsmanship involved. It may not be correct in calling it a bullpup since the trigger still sits behind the magazine, but it for sure has been shortened the way it was possible, and parts of the action are now covered by the stock.



    Whoever did the conversion, he was good in what he did, and every possible effort was taken to make it look great. The checkering is extremely nice cut, and the rod from the pump handle is even spring held at the bolt handle to make the repeating smoother.

    Barrel is made by Sako, caliber reads as 6.3x57, yet need to find out what this really is (necked down Germanicon 8x57?).

    This customization is amazing, and extreme. I 'm having difficulty imagining how a shooter would mount and fire this rifle, given such a short length of pull, and proximity of the trigger group. Regardless, this is definitely a find. I would love for you to post a picture of you mounting the rifle. Hope you have luck sourcing the ammunition.

    I have photos of a MkII Ross converted to a pump in a similar way.

    Unless this was built for a person with no neck, or fired from the standing position only, I conclude there is a section missing from the stock.

    Perhaps built for a "running deer" type competition?

    The scope mount is interesting: the extreme cantilever presumably intended to avoid contacting the barrel?

    A lot of work went into that. Another thing to consider is it appears to be chambered in a rimless cartridge which also means they had to modify the magazine to work with rimless ammunition.

    Comparing the magazine with a normal M1910 magazine it indeed appears to have been modified. I however can't see much of a difference on the bolt head when comparing it with a normal .303 from the M1910.

    Holding the rifle in standing position your cheek will anyway partially touch the original rear sight base, so therefore it fits. The scope rail has been moved forward anyway, so this would also not be a problem. Only my right hand feels too long to properly sit on the trigger. But since the cutout for the thumb is anyway too small for my thumb it is my feeling that this rifle was either made for someone of a very small size, a female or possibly even a child.

    I might also note that the buttplate is missing. This one could had also added some overall length too.

    Edit: re screw in the trigger guard: it avoids that the trigger resets too much forward. My best guess a primitive solution to shorten the trigger way.

    Built for a specific person for a specific reason. Small person considering the ergonomics and calibre. Possibly disabled.

    Calibre - Mauser used the 57 mm length cartridges just about for all calibres from 6 mm to 9 mm, so this is probably the 6 x 57 Mauser cartridge.

    I guess they would not mark it 6.3 x 57 on the barrel shank if the caliber was 6 x 57 instead..

    True. I would still think 6x57 based, might be a wildcat. Would be good to find out.
