The Official C&R Bubbafication Porn Thread

You asked for it. So here goes.

I thought it would be fun to post any and all Curio and Relic Bubba rifles here.

As we all know, some surplus firearms are total POS and are worth less than what you actually paid for them and they will never be anything other than a toss around beaters.

Many of us built Bubba's from just barreled actions and not complete rifles.

So don't be ascairt. Let's see those cobbled together Frankenrifles.

And remember, if God didn't want us to build Bubba guns, he wouldn't have given us JB-Weld and Camo in a can.


Turkish Model 38.

8mm Mauser. 18-1/2 inch barrel. 39 inch OAL

Homemade muzzle brake. Slip fitted on to the barrel and secured with JB-Weld of course.

Rustoleum rattle camo.

I'll admit to my mistakes, its what makes us better.
I like this thread from a prospective to teach others by our own mistakes. that's how I'm going to take this post:

My second Mosin, The mount sucked and the red dot sucked. More trouble than it was worth. I hope to take my lessen and convince other not to follow the same path. It was far easier to aim, but did not shoot any better. The produced as much pattern disbursement as just using the iron sights. It was easier to adjust the sights though.
This was about a year ago. The red dot was off the next week I and sold the Mosin to a friend yesterday.

The rear sight base optics adapter is always a classic.

Stevens Springfield Model 56, .22 cal, I bought it in a pawn shop for $60 with a bulged barrel. I cut the barrel to barely legal length, recarved the stock, checkered, added ebony and heart pine butt and grip cap, and added a Millet Red Dot Sight. Bubba? Yeah, guilty.

I'm eager to see where this goes.

I have a few to post here as well, gotta dig out the camera.

Man, those rear iron sight sight bases usually SUCK unless you do one of two things:

drill holes in the mount corresponding to the holes in the dovetail, and use either the original pins, or roll pins from home depot. The great thing about roll pins is that you have some wiggle room as far as diameter goes, and the spring pressure will keep that thing in there ROCK SOLID.

The second option is good old JB weld under the base with a bead of weld on the dovetail in front and in back of the sight base to give it extra protection from sliding forward and backwards under recoil.

There are also some MUCH better rear sight replacement kits. My favorite of which actually has a rear iron sight built into the picatinny rail at the rear, giving you a longer sight radius. Mounting requires drilling and tapping the receiver behind the chamber mouth, as well as the the rear sight base. When fully mounted it is completely rock solid.

As for the muzzle brake secured with JB weld, how much have you shot the thing? Do you think it will come loose? How much does it help with recoil?

I'm glad everyone here can be open minded... I'm a member of a forum where even cleaning a stock with anything other than lemon oil will get you scolded, and advocating the refinishing of a milsurp will get your post deleted and yourself banned (though they do have a bubba section).

I did, however, cringe at the Mosin with the BSA on it.

Jeez, did you have to re-zero the red dot after every shot?

That muzzle brake is rock solid. It's called jb WELD for a very good reason. And it has a temperature range in the 600 degree area.

Yes, it works and very loud too. Noise goes sideways and not straight forward. My idea was to keep the scope from whiting out when hunting in low light conditions.

JB is a Bubba builders best friend. There is also a JB-Kwik with a 4 minute set time.


Smoothbore,

Excellent craftsmanship on that stock. I worked with Ebony ONCE. The very definition of hardwood.

I'd be more interested to know how far away he was shooting to get that group posted above
