sitting here late night looking for a marlin 30-30 lever action , i had the bright idea that i need to run across yall to see if feasable. here in FL there are a few land places to go hog hunting. and i have been invited to one of them. well was looking thru my safe for a high power rifle to take, and non of them i really want to take into the brush to get used and abused. so pops into my mind is to take a mosin nagant, well the only one that i have in my safe is a 91/30 hex reciever. whats the feasability of picking up a M44 (the carbine length mosin) and somehow putting a scope on it and using it as a cheap high power rifle since the caliber is 7.62x54r . i would be looking at around 80-100 for the rifle and then not sure for a scope and mounting brackets. good idea or keep looking for another rifle?
