ATI Mosin-Nagant Monte Carlo Stock

A Warm Greeting to all you Blog Readers

I’ve decided that this month will be “Stock” month, so I’m going to review a few of the Great Stocks that ATI put out and today’s one is the Famous (or infamous depending on whether you were a Russian or a German) Russian Mosin-Nagant Rifle Stock ~ Y12. Now you will have all heard about the Great Russian “Tractor”  – the one piece of equipment that will keep operating in all kinds of weather and temperatures, from the mud & slush through to the sand & grit, built like “Brick Sh*t House” (Have Nice Day!!!)
The sort of machine that you could throw anything in the breech and the damm thing would fire it………………(sounds like “Enemy at the Gate”) What we are talking about here is the Wonderfully Simple, Tough as Nails, Easy to Operate, Great Russian Mosin-Nagant Rifle – of course. – (It’s easy to tell, I like Russian Guns, isn’t it?)

The Mosin-Nagant Rifle was a joint effort between Sergei Ivanovich Mosin (a Captain in the Imperial Army) and Leon and Emile Nagant (Belgian Firearms Manufactures) and it is over 120 years old, having been adopted into the Russian Army in 1891, and has been used in as many conflicts around the world, from the “Boxer Rebellion” in 1898, through to the present day war in Afghanistan – 2013. That sure is the mark of one “Hell-of-a-Good Rifle” There have only been 4 different Models of the Long Rifles and 4 different Models of the Carbines, which is totally typical of the Russians in that – If something works well…………….Why the Hell Change it!!!!! and with the total of approx. 37 million having been produced from Russia alone, that’s a Sh*t load of Mosin’s around the place.

Anyway……………..Enough “Mosin Around” and on with the Blog. The Good Folks at ATI have come up with a fine looking “Great Russian Tractor” of a stock to dress up your aging Mosin-Nagant. Check out the picture below and tell me…………….Who would have thought your Mosin could look so good!!! Seriously though, if there is one thing I really like about this stock (I already like the rifle) it is ………..COMFORTABLE!!! Who would have thought that the “Great Russian Tractor” could be…………. COMFORTABLE??? Let me expound on this a little more as I can see the disbelief on your faces.

For a start – The stock is made from DuPont Extreme Temperature Glass Reinforced Polymer, which not only is it pretty much indestructible, but it has a certain warmth to the touch = (Comfortable) Then we have the Monte Carlo style stock with a Soft Touch, Raised, Cheekrest Pad = (More Comfort) as well as the Scorpion Recoil Buttpad = (Lot’s More Comfort) to soak up the Harsh Recoil of the 7.62 x 54 Rimmed (Shoulder Bashing) Cartridge. Those Russian Soldiers must have been built like “Tractors” as well. The Stock also has a better defined Pistol Grip for a more (Comfortable) Grip.

The 1 piece stock has got Checkering on the Forend and on the Pistol Grip for more (You guessed it…..Comfort) and comes with 2 x Sling Swivel Studs to fit your Rifle Sling to. It is so easy to fit these stocks to your Mosin as they are designed for a “Drop-In” installation, taking no time at all,(leaves more time for Vodka) and last but not least, is that they come in 2 colours – “Rasputin Black” and the new “Ural Dark Earth Brown”

These stocks will fit all the 91/30 Mosin Long Rifles, the M38 and the M44 Carbines, and most of the Mosin-Nagant 7.62x54R variants, which is a bonus, because whatever you think about the Mosin-Nagant Rifle, the fact remains that it still is a great rifle to shoot and hunt with. So my Comrades…………Till we meet again.

Dosvadanya!!!!! – Have Nice Day!!!!!……………………………………….The “Quartermaster”
