Yeah, the "compatible with AEG spring for upgrading power" pretty much sells it to me unless it's just stupidly expensive. So long as darklite's estimates are correct on the price though this looks like my gun for next year. The production photos do look very encouraging, hopefully this won't be some studpidly tiny production run that sells out in two hours, never to be seen again. Still, the number of bolts in the photos suggested it probably won't be too limited. So long money, it was nice knowing you....

anyone wanting a Simo Hayha loadout or similar will want the longer rifle

Mr. Hayha's emulators will have it hard no matter what. He didn't use a 91/30 but a M-28 or M-28/30, which is shorter than the long rifle but not as short as the M38 or M44 carbines. A man of 160cm would have had a hard time moving around a 130cm rifle (not that the M28 with its 119cm is "short" anyway).


I would have gone for the 91/30 by RS production numbers alone, but the carbine is a good choice that will please reenactors up to Vietnam... and cheaper to make.

Ack, that's looking like a ktw clone... I don't know what happened to the vsr internals plan, but they've *fruitcage*ed up.

Ah, good point. Modification time for them then! That's a shame on it not being VSR based, that said the two big issues with the KTW were the price and the crappy power, correct? So if it's not horribly expensive and you can swap out the spring for something not pathetic it should still be a nice, fairly skirmishable mosin. I guess it's a "wait and see" job.

Man, if this is even remotely decent I am selling my 10/22 to get one. Christ, it's like every time I wait and wait and finally get what I think is my perfect rifle, they come out and release something even cooler just out of the blue.

Personally I would prefer a Springfield or Arisaka, but really, any old school bolt action rifle that doesn't blow and is sanely priced is a guaranteed buy for me.

Don't forget your ushanka, comrade.


By the time I got my kit it was only the great coat or the ushanka, "One man has the great coat, when the man with the great coat is killed, the man without the great coat picks it up and stays warm!"

But if its not VSR based then I am out, too much hassle finding the upgrades.

Well the barrels for a lot of the ACM and HK airsoft guns seem to be better quality than a lot of the japanese and aftermarket barrels anyway. The spring is confirmed as an AEG spring that can be swapped out so the main thing I'm worried about is the hop, if it's decent anyway then even if it's proprietary it's not that much of an issue, if it's proprietary and ###### then we have a problem. If it's not proprietary then it doesn't matter too much what the qaulity is. What was the hop-mech on the KTW mosin nagant like?

######, limited edition.... I wonder how many units they'll actually make? Hopefully won't be some silly couple hundred world wide deal. This could come at a pretty anoying time for a lot of people, no money just after christmas and all.

tbf fair a couple hundred units is about all that'll shift now its not VSR internals, it'll be impossible to upgrade, just a wall hanger.. wait, you can get a REAL mosin for a wall hanger for less.

Hmm, not impossible to upgrade, the spring at least will be possible to swap out and without knowing about the quality of the rest of the internals we can't really say it won't be at all servisable as skirmish weapon... That said I am, like most everyone here, rathe baffled as to why they decided to not make it a VSR based gun and only do a limited run....

I so want one of these to do this to it


Just kidding, I think my other guns would grow legs and walk out of the house if I brought something like that home,
at the very least my m-4's would tease it unmercifully about it's looks!

I actually really like that fugly stick - it just needs a longer barrel IMO, with the scope mounted a little further back.

Looks like the price is set at $369... I wonder what the 91/30 and the sniper set will cost.

Floorplate detail is also interesting.

While it wouldn't be accurate to anything (within my knowledge) this would be fun to hack into a De Lisle carbine configuration.
