    Default Just finished Camo job on M44 Mosin Nagant

    Just finished the camo job on my M44 Mosin Nagant hunting rifle. Not too bad for my first camo job I must say. Just thought I'd share her.

    I see you left the bayonett mount on the muzzle, so you can easily restore it to Military condition.

    Now go Hunt, return and post, well be waiting for your results

    If you can't Kill it with a 30-06, you should Hide.

    On the end of the muzzle is the bayo/front sight lug that the bayo connector "ears" have been machine lathed off of. This one won't be going back to military condition, I'm going down to WA next month and hope to find a near mint MN to keep in military condition. I just don't know which MN model I'll go for. Sweet rifles and cheap as dirt. And first kill with it y'all will know about.

    I used Khaki, Olive Green, Brown camo spray paint from Walmart; Blue painter tape; and corn husk broom bristles cut off and taped into small bundles. Got the idea from this website: http://www.predatorwild.com/topic/47...it-look-great/

    Want to make it vanish in the bush? A few burlap strips will do that, but don't set it down, you may not be able to find it again.

    Tell you a story: I have an FN-Fal, all black STG-58 with the bipod. Was out berry picking with the wife, four (!) girls and MIL. Set the rifle down to work over a spot and then couldn't find the darned thing. Had to call all the women back to help me find it. It was right where I left it sitting on a hummock only 50-feet from me. Amazing.

    As a coonhunter I learned a long time ago to put a piece of reflective tape on both guns and GPS.
