Ever See a Mosin-Nagant Rifle Rechambered to .45/70?

Did you even know it was possible to rechamber a Mosin-Nagant to the fat .45/70 cartridge?

This video shows it is entirely possible with the help of master gunsmith Jim Green of downeastgunworks.

Watch this video and see how this incredible feat was made a reality.

Jim Green has quite the weapon for the Mosin-Nagant fan. It is a converted military rifle rechambered for the thick old classic .45/70 cartridge.

For states that only allow straight walled cartridges for deer hunting (such as Ohio), this rifle just may be the ticket for a perfect deer rifle.

How does Jim do this? This video shows you in great detail the hard work that goes into one of these remarkable big bore converted rifles.
