I found a definite contender just now:



Yeah, that's a pistol based on the Mosin Nagant rifle..

Here's a video of a similar weapon:

Mosin Nagant 91/30 (NFA, SBR) (External Embedding Disabled)

I'm actually surprised how manageable that looks, I was expecting the gun to fly all over the place.. rifle rounds in a pistol and all that..

With that short of barrel I suspect that the bullets leave the gun at close to pistol velocities anyway so It should be manageable.  Cool gun, personally I'm saving up for a .44 mag Mare's leg pistol to go with my .44 revolver.

Time to dust off the Class III SBR forms and save up the tax stamp money again...  Dognabit, why did you have to post that?!?!? 

And on a  side note, that gun is TOTALLY steampunk, it's basically a short Mosin Nagant M1891 (the 91/30 is the same rifle, just a little lighter, and the magazine spring is attached to the base of the mag.).

The actual design is historical as well, russin trench fighters would chop their 91/30s short like that, called an Obrez.  Great for putting a 6 inch hole in your target's chest, AND setting them on fire!  Granted, it may break your finger...

Still, I'm a huge fan of the classic "Mare's Leg" Winchester 92 SBR.  Great thing is, Rossi is now making one called the "Ranch Hand," same thing that Steve McQueen carried in "Wanted: Dead or Alive!"  Needless to say, I'm quite stoked...

 I think I'm going to be thinking this over long and hard...   ...I'm done thinking. I'm going to get another 1891 to butcher unless it's better than my current one. I bet it would look really nice with the bayonet mounted to the muzzle. I'd have to save the "good" ammo for the pistol though. The cheap surplus Bulgarian rounds I have are the devil to cycle!

$200 in tax, approval from BATF, and Big Brother can come knocking any time and say "It says you have THIS serial numbered SBR, SHOW us."

AND you have to keep your papers WITH the gun, and take them WITH you when you shoot.

In the end, is it really worth it?

Yeah, it would be a short-barreled rifle.. now if only you could get blank receivers that haven't been made into a rifle yet - based on that, the exact same thing would be classified as a pistol. Same exact trick the mare's leg builders use.. or the 'pistol' variants of the AK47-clones..

 Not as much trouble, where's the fun in that!?

Edit: (Besides, do a cost comparison before you go hack'n em up!)

Cutting a Garand's barrel back to the end of the gas system would get you about an inch and a half. Major re-engineering to shorten the gas system. Too bad.

I think the gov't, any gov't of any nation has no buusiness stopping people from self-defense.

There really aren't any laws in most states that limit actual every-day self defense,  they just limit doing fun things with guns Smiley  A .38 revolver could solve 99% of self defense problems but wouldn't be very much fun to own and useless for the actually purposes of the second amendment.

The real problem is that most gun laws have nothing to do with self defense, either pro or con. SBR is good example.  Cutting down a gun you already own is illegal without at tax, buying a gun with the exact same spec's is fine, probably because the Gov. is knows it gets paid taxes on those or because fifty years ago someone thought that sawed off rifles where somehow more dangerous than a handgun.

Anyway, I like my guns too much to hack them up. I'm just going to buy one of those Rossi "handguns"

That Mosing Nagant "pistol" look very interesting. It also reminds me of this silly air rifle modification from my teen years.  Roll Eyes

break-barrel airgun? Must be a pig to cock with that short barrel. Not a whole lot of leverage there.. Unless it's a pretty weak gun to start with - my only airgun experience is with 1000fps Gamo guns..

Yeah.. That's why I put the bayonet thing for giving it more leverage.

It's modified from some cheap Chinese air rifle and I used it mainly for shooting rats very close ranges in our barn house. Last time was almost ten years ago.

Grabbing a knife by the blade doesn't seem like a very safe way to cock a gun.. Grin

There was an Aussie film recently about an underground battle between German and British/Aussie miners on the Western Front during WW1 (Beneath Hill 60) That had the Aussie miners taking sawn-off Enfields with them down the mines.  Great little Indy flick if you like your military history.

Anyway...
These little relics were apparently found near that particular battlefield.

this?




I have had one of these "kits" from Dixie Gun Works for years.  Since you need to actually drill/bore the barrel out mine might never shoot.  A couple pounds of brass key is probably more effective as a club that a small caliber matchlock any way.   I do not think that I can recommend this to anyone unless you can get it really cheap.
