The first 3 shots were from adjusting red dot, then I covered them up after a cease fire.

It eventually went onto my son's airsoft. Lesson learned. I'm sure with the right mount as suggested and a better optic, a mosin can be made to a meat getter, but I can shoot iron sights much better now anyway. It does take more time to line up the shot though. It was only worth the time I took to learn that what I was doing was a waste of time and something I did not want to repeat for various reasons.

I saw a guy with a cut down 91/30 (cut 2" off the muzzle and crowned) and a dovetail mounted scout scope at the range once. It was doing about 2-3" groups at 100 yards and he had to take about 2-4 minutes between shots.

I saw this someplace (I can not remember where)


If I remember the story guy painted it blue for his kid, so she would shoot.
(Or something like that)

I think that I have never seen,
A really cool Bubba-ed Mosin,
To strip it bare and change its stock,
To plastic crap--that's just a crock!
Poems are made by fools like me,
But bigger fools spoil history!

JB is a Bubba builders best friend. There is also a JB-Kwik with a 4 minute set time.
Don't use the Kiwk weld, it fails much easier than the regular weld.

I'm a huge proponent of JB weld. I've used it to fill in the safety holes on two of my Tokarevs. One was a Romanian that the safety was missing when I bought it, the second was a M57 where the thing was bent. I mixed it with black magnetite as a pigment to match the color of the bluing, and it came out beautiful in both cases.

I'm a huge fan of JB weld, it just has it's limits, and they are much easier to reach when using the kwik weld.

I've also found that the 600 degree temp range is INCREDIBLY conservative. If you use a 65-70% resin to 35-30% hardener mix, it will take longer to cure, but will be even more heat resistant.

I repaired a lower handguard on a VZ-2008 I had that had a long crack in it. The crack was not something making the thing non-functional, I just did not want it spreading, so I wiggled some JB weld in there, and then lined the inside of the handguard just to give it some extra rigidity.

So as anyone who owns one knows, the lower handguard on VZ-58 pattern rifles has no metal heat shield in it, and gets HOT HOT HOT after about 50 fairly rapid shots, although it also sheds heat very quickly- ANYWAYS, the Weld held great, but also had the unintended consequence of acting as a heat shield. I guess the steel really does make a difference. My point was that that handguard gets as hot as the bejesus, and the weld has not failed yet. It's been about four years since I applied it, and after driving out the roll pin to remove the handguard for cleaning purposes, I found no cracking, no chipping, no deformation of any kind. The only trouble spot is that a tiny lip of weld on the bottom left corner seemed to have separated from the handguard material. But if I remember correctly I believe I did not degrease any of that area of the ballistol I condition all my polymer and wood with, so when looked at that way it's really quite something. Just to be safe I sanded off the lip, degreased and cleaned, and applied a touch up bead overtop. If it can withstand all the heat of lo these many many MANY rounds, I think it's fine in your muzzle brake.

JB weld almost never lets me down, and when it does it's usually the PAINT behind it that uncouples from the surface, rather than the weld.

That Kwik Weld, though... Pain in the ass. Not as strong by half as much. It's marked as having a tensile strength about half as high as original JB weld, but in practice I find it does not like to stick to many surfaces.

The way I'm setting JB weld these days is to mix about a 60/40 ratio resin/hardener and then apply to the piece, then put it in front of a space heater on medium heat. This practice speeds up curing time to about 2 1/2 hours to handleable, and the overall strength of the bond is increased due to the heat kind of melting the weld while still in it's liquid state, allowing it to creep into the pores of the material while in this thinner consistency, then quickly sets up.

I love the stuff. Just thought that 8mm gas pressure might rip the muzzle brake off. Then again, if it's applied the entire length of the brake around the entire circumference...

Who can take a rifle ...
Pull off all the wood ...
Put it into plastic,
Make it like it's from the 'hood?

The Bubba man ...

The Bubba man can!

The Bubba man can,
'Cuz he changes all the parts,
And screws it up real good!


Who can chop a barrel ...
Bolt on Walmart sights ...
Pretend that it's tactical,
And great for firefights?

The Bubba man ...

The Bubba man can!

The Bubba man can,
'Cuz he doesn't give a damn,
'Bout what that gun's withstood.


The Bubba man fakes,
Mags and muzzle brakes,
Tripods, stocks, and then he wishes,
He could shoot guys just like fishes,
Tryin' to hide the fact--he swishes!


Who can take Pop's old gun ...
Make it look real kewl ...
Thinks that he's a genius,
But he's really just a fool?

The Bubba man ...

The Bubba man can!

The Bubba man can,
'Cuz he'd rather do that than,
Just keep it all old-school!

The Bubba man can cuzz he uses JBWeld to make it all stick good.

I love the: "Who can chop a barrel" part. That's good stuff.

YEP! I told you I'd give you ST for doing this!
