We are selling at random pick from the original crate the round recievers at the low price of $215. It’s the luck of the draw as to which manufacturer you will receive and date. Dates appear to range from 1939-1944+.
Your rifle will resemble similar condition to those in the stock photos. Some wear and a few dings, but overall very good condition for this type of rifle.
If you are interested in a Hex or other type of receiver/condition of a rifle. We will be pulling the Hex’s and other less common Mosin Nagant rifles and listing them individually on our website to give you the opportunity to know exactly what you are purchasing. However, these rifles will be listed at a higher price dependent upon their condition and markings.
Mosin Nagant rifles are required to ship to an FFL or C&R License.
Interested in modifying a Mosin Nagant? You can purchase one of these rifles (or ship your own), and then can purchase additional services through Bluegrass Gunworks to be completed on your Mosin before we ship it to you.
Commonly selected services:
- Rock Solid Industries scope mount & installation.
- Barrel shortened and given an 11° target crown.
- Standard barrel threading of 5/8 x 24 TPI
We will email you a second invoice (through Bluegrass Gunworks to process the export licensing) to cover the additional charges associated with your order. Shipping fees are based off of the address used with your order and we are required under ITAR to obtain an export license.
The majority of our international customers do not require an import license from their own countries to import a stock. However, please check your country and local regulations. Be aware that there may be duties and import taxes levied by your country even if there is no import license required.
We use the United States Postal Service-Priority Mail International- (fully insured) for international shipping purposes.
The export license generally takes 10 business days to process from the date submitted. The license fee is 5% of the value of your order. As example: Your complete order comes to $300. The license fee is $15 ($300 x 5%)
There is an additional $18 fee to help offset our annual ITAR registration fee and the time to complete the paperwork, customs, etc.
As part of the export license request under ITAR, on the second invoice containing the shipping charges, there is an additional statement included on the invoice.
“I, the above referenced purchaser, by my action of placing this purchase order with certify that I have complied with the import regulations of the government of my Country and that an Import Certificate is not required for me to import the items listed above and that they are for personal use on a civil use sporting firearm and that I will not divert, transship or re-export the items described herein without the prior approval of my Government.”
We will need you to print, sign, date and email us a copy (PDF, or JPEG) for inclusion with the export license request.
We are pushing to have inventory on hand that is finished to 80% complete. That way when your order comes in, we can add a custom barrel, or vents, do some light sanding, apply your selected finish and get it shipped out the door within 10 business days.
Right now we are running tactical mosin blanks and shipping out stocks for everyone who responded from the waiting list.
For mosin tactical stocks ordered on this website I expect to start shipping the tail end of the week of the 14th of August, with our target to ship future orders within two weeks of the customer order date.
K-31 stock blanks will be in the works by late August with orders starting to ship in early September.
Our customers biggest complaint has always been our delays in our shipping dates; our customers biggest compliment is that it was always well worth the wait.
We want to change that and get our reputation for shipping to rise to the same level as the excellent reputation our products have for quality, design and craftsmanship.
We are currently working with CK Composites to get an assortment of laminate panels in various color configurations to turn into stock blanks. By the time the panels arrive (September) we should have our production run programs for the light tactical and mountain stock ready to go as well.
Pricing- depending on the popularity and amount of laminate material we order, we hope to stay within a similar price point for walnut stocks.
Whether you are looking to just have your Rock Solid Industries scope mount installed properly, or needing other services tailored to the Mosin Nagant and K-31, we have the capabilities and competitive pricing structure to fit your needs. For our dealers, please see our catalog for the dealer pricing structure.
If you are using any of the Rock Solid Industries mounts other then the RSI Scout Mount, you will have to modify your bolt with a bent handle. Our bolt modification service can replace your existing straight handle with a bent round, teardrop or threaded bolt handle.
If you’re seeking to improve the accuracy of your rifle, the most economical action you can take is shortening your barrel and having it re-crowned with an 11 degree target crown. Every Mosin barrel is different, but as a rule of thumb we generally recommend shortening the barrel somewhere between 20″-22″ before adding the target crown.
Threading is a very popular option to the Mosin. The addition of a muzzle brake greatly reduces the recoil and if combined with an upgraded stock or the addition of a modern recoil pad, you can greatly reduce the “mule kick” that the 7.62 round is known for with the Mosin. There are some great flash suppressors on the market, but AAC makes one that tamed the Mosin flame and turned it into little more than sparks you would see struck from a Bic lighter.

Standard Threads: (email us for other threading options)
- 5/8″ x 24 TPI (industry standard)
- M14 x 1.0 L.H. Thread (used with the popular Tapco Ak-74 muzzle brake)
We create our rifle stocks out of Maple and Walnut hardwoods, and have created customs stocks out of rosewood and other materials.
The material arrives in 12-20 foot custom cut sections, often sourced from right here in Kentucky. It’s not uncommon to have lumber from Tennessee, Pennsylvania or even farther afield, and we have even looked at sourcing walnut overseas from places like Turkey. Anyone familiar with the lumber market and prices for walnut will understand why.
A vacuum kiln is utilized to remove the moisture from the lumber until we obtain the moisture content we require. This helps maintain the stability of the wood through temperature swings and reduces the likely hood of “shrinkage” that can stress joints and pre-existing checks in the wood. It also allows for a better bond with the binding agents we use with our cross laminated grip.
Each lumber board is hand sorted, marked for the highest yield while cutting around the knots, checks, fissures and other problematic wood grain structure. Even using this process, we’ll have almost a 10% rejection rate of stocks as they move through the production process and fail to meet our quality control inspections.
The stock blanks end up on our CNC routers. The routers assist in reproducing the hand-crafted design (utilizing the 3D scan CAD design of the hand crafted original), and each stock is still hand worked to get the curves and feel that we want-yet the CNC allows for precision fitting of the cross grain lamination in the grips, barrel channel and receiver/pillar cut out.
The catalyzed varnish we utilize performs very well at repelling moisture, dirt, and even offers UV protection. It allows the natural beauty of the wood grain to show through, while providing protection to the wood stock and minimizing expansion/contraction, and thus consistency at the range. Only use cleaning solvents rates for wood finish products.
Duracoat is a very popular finish. We started using it at the recommendation of numerous active duty and retired military service personnel. There’s lots of research on the forums from first hand users of the abuse that firearms with Duracoat have been put through. Just remember, it can take up to 30 days to get the complete cure! So watch out for those harsh chemicals until the cure is complete-but generally safe to shoot by the time you receive your stock.
The design of the stock itself is geared towards consistent accuracy in shooting, and greatly reducing the recoil that the Mosin is known for.
The use of the integrated pillars supports the rifles action on non-compressible “pillars” that are rigidly bedded in the stock to help eliminate accuracy problems stemming from faulty, action-stressing, metal-to-wood fitting.
All of our rear pillars are cut to accept the Timney trigger system. This allows you to obtain the trigger pull that best works for you, and the safety with the Timney is a nice addition.
The barrel channel is designed to free float the barrel. This keeps the wood stock from touching (warping) into the rifle barrel-changing harmonics, etc and also allows the barrel to expand as it heats up, and other benefits with free floated barrels.
Comfort was something we were looking for with the stock design. The cellular structure of wood itself, using bedded pillars, the full length stock, and utilizing the Remington Super Cell recoil pad greatly effects the recoil.
Customers have reported that their 10 & 12 year old children have sent dozens of shots down range in a short period of time with great enjoyment-instead of feeling like they were being kicked by a mule.
Our receiver cut is patterned off of the early 1900 hex receivers. They were the smallest we’ve found. As such, there is plenty of stock material and Devcon that can be removed by you to get the custom fit desired for your rifle.
You want to have your front lug and tang sit flat against the tops of the pillars.
I would expect to spend 10-15 minutes (but often less) “tweaking” to have your receiver fit properly. There is just too much variation with Mosin production to make a quality “drop in” stock.
Timney Trigger: The rear pillar has been cut to fit the Timney trigger. However, due to receiver variation you may need to further open the timney trigger cut (one side or the other) to get the proper clearance to ensure the
timney trigger does not touch.
Timney Safety: The safety can have a factory variation or “bend” and as such, you may need to further inlet the safety cut to allow proper movement of the Timney safety.
(see yellow arrow above)
Front Lug: Some can either be further forward or rear, you can enlarge/shave the front lug area to fit your receiver.
A very common issue is an “over clocked” barrel, that comes from an over tightened barrel. Instead of modifying the front lug area, try removing some wood/devcon in the tang area ( a little at a time) till the receiver/barrel fits properly. Shaving the tang will cause the barrel to adjust to the opposite side (shave the left side to adjust barrel to the right)
A higher front lug on your receiver will generally not be noticed, and may only make your barrel appear “riding high” in the barrel channel.
A lower front lug on your receiver could allow the barrel to touch the bottom of the channel. This is more rare, and is easily corrected with a small washer.
If your receiver screws do not thread properly, you can make an easy adjustment by enlarging (reaming) the rear pillar or adjusting the rear pillar angle.
The front lug screw should be left alone as much as possible.
If minor adjustments in the rear and the front lug, and the barrel is still touching the barrel channel, please email us. At this point you will be better served drilling out the front pillar and having us send you a replacement front pillar that you can install with J.B. Weld in order to have the proper fit to your receiver.
The addition of the monopod system to the butt of the stock is what turns a tactical mosin nagant stock into an SF tactical mosin nagant stock.
The monopod design originally allowed for only macro adjustment, accomplished by loosening the brass (we use brass to keep from marring the steel and creating “drag” points) knob and manually raising or lowering the monopod to help you achieve proper eye relief and a comfortable, consistent hold.
We have some great beta testers in the Phoenix area and at various military establishments around the country who have helped us develop this style of stock, including the monopod. One of the main adjustments to the monopod from their feedback was the addition of “micro” adjustment ability. We added a steel “foot” to the bottom of the monopod that allows for minimal incremental changes in elevation.

It may not seem like much, but for long range, consistent groupings, the additional 3/4″ micro adjustment allows the shooter to fine tune their hold.
With their feedback we also made the cross laminated grip design a standard feature on our rifle stocks. Normally one of the weakest areas of the rifle stock, the cross grain lamination greatly enhances the strength, and pound for pound, is stronger than steel.
These are the comments from the special forces shooters that we have the great privileged to have worked with in helping us develop this stock that allows those on a budget to still be able to afford a 1,000 yard rifle.
This is a response to the question of how did the gun assemble?
“Not too bad, just a few thousandths here and there. And, I drilled out the pillar beds a few thousandths for temp expansion between the aluminum pillars and steel allen bolts. You should have a smile from ear to ear. Your stock has all the guys approval. For comfort, moveability, “ease of transitioning”, build quality, and aesthetics.
They really love the look of it and the design. They can’t believe it’s a BETA. “
“The other question I keep getting is how soon can they buy one?”
Note: Despite the wind and snow, our stock was able to compete in the inter-agency function against rifles costing many thousands of dollars, and below follows the after action report.
“It was the best personally owned gun I’ve ever shot. A bit more recoil than an M4, but less than an AK. It was an absolute joy to fire. It was the least amount of recoil we had out. And had the most power, velocity and accuracy of any of the Government Issue. Everyone was absolutely blown away with the stock. “
