a couple more projects for the work bench. both barrels are pictured on the same receiver right now, i'm going to order a couple more hex mosins next week.
this barrel came from a russian maxim machine gun.
the barrel is 25 1/2" long. the muzzel weight on the end of the barrel is 1" dia. and 3 1/2" long. after the muzzel weight the barrel drops down to .675 then tapers to 1.187 at the shank.
it will stay in 7.62x54r
i'm going to make a stock for it similar to this finn mosin 27-66 target rifle.
this one is from a madsen light machine gun.
the barrel is 20" long, .940 at the muzzel & 1.175" at the shank. it has a 7mm bore so i think i'll do a 7mmx54r wildcat with it. i'm not sure what i'm going to do with the stock for it .yet
