Interesting Sam, and i stand corrected, i thought the big tok was the russian version of our M1, can see by the magizine the troops got his L hand on that its much more like a BAR, and guessing with the balistics being close it was a hell of an early squad automatic weapon. Eastern front must have been a very bad tour of duty.
The Russkis built the Tok lightweight only 8.6 lbs. BBL was no good if you did a 50 round burst, metal was so thin. 2x20 rounds was max.
Trying to dig out old pictures of our BAR (mod 1918 i think but better check) as i post this to see if mr B's had fins or not. the weight savings is huge in comparison, interesting that both had same cap mags. gona have to get off and make a trip over to check more on the evolution of this piece.
didnt the soviets use the 7.62x54r, and i thought the 7.62x51 wasnt available til the 50's
you have to be careful with those calibers,if you know what i mean.Lot's of variety
yeha i was just joking with snake last night that i was gonna use a .308 on my mosin lol.
Yup I know your not that dumb......I hope LOL!!!!
hahaha, if i had the money to buy another mosin i would sooooo do it.
Raffy dont bust a gun over trying a bullet not designed for it. If your gonna bust a gun make sure its a gun still in production not a classic WWII gun.
He should use the shells with the brass casings not the bi-metal. The brass hardly ever jam in that weapon but once the gun gets warm the bi-metal casings jam constantly.
btw keep an eye out for me for the m38 or m44, i want a carbine mosin.
I want a mosin myself anyone will do. Got any extras for sale? Or trade?
i bought some at ammotogo.com, steel core and all, and snake, impactguns,com has mosins for slae and cheap, but no carbine lengths, only ex snipers.
