if your AK does that, then what can my mosin nagant do?
on foot: (weight is an issue)
Marlin 925r .22lr rifle on a homemade custom bullpup stock (I love customizing my guns), uh, probably a suppressor I'd obtain after
the fall of government (and laws banning such things), and my centerpoint 4-16x40mm mil dot scope. scope zeroed for 25 yards. built-in bi pod. approx 9.5 lbs (yeah, that's a heavy .22)
my magazines- 1x7rd, 9x10rd
350 rounds spare ammunition: 150 rounds high velocity solid point, 100 rounds Remington subsonic, 50 rounds Remington ceebee (for hunting use), 50 rounds CCI CB Long
magazines: 50 rounds high velocity solid point, 47 rounds Remington subsonic.
Hi Point C9, magazine safety removed (its stupid), drop safety neutralized (it makes the gun rattle), feed ramp polished, cheap Fobus paddle holster (I think this is the only
holster there is anyway), internals greased with lithium grease (which is waterproof and rarely ever needs to be reapplied)
6x8rd magazines, 5x10rd magazines that would be in the backpack.
150 rounds FMJ RN 124gr +P handloads, 200 rounds FMJ FP 124gr handloads: 48 rounds FP ammunition in the 8rd magazines, 50 rounds RN ammunition in the 10rd magazines. rest is loose, in two separate bags. I've found my handloads to be more accurate than my regular factory ammo at the same time way cheaper. (huh?)
this combination is intended for long range, the .22lr is quiet and very accurate. the 9mm backs me up in case I stumble into a close-range situation or I have to go indoors, to salvage
traveling mostly by vehicle:
Izhevsk Dragoon Mosin Nagant & bayonet & sling
15 clips (75 rounds) ussr 80's mil surp (mild) steel core light ball, 5 clips (25 rounds) ussr steel core AP ball
this is my regular primary. it's quite a rifle. to those who are new to the mosin nagant, it can shoot thru an entire house, punch a hole in a engine block, and probably shoot thru 4 people. i can hit the barn from 2 counties over, the sight goes up to "3200" and I've actually tried it. i can spear a zombie from 5 feet, if out of ammo it make a supreme war club, and the muzzle blast is known to set nearby things on fire. all the typical properties of a mosin nagant. (better than an AK in most cases)
Norinco MAK-90 & bayonet (even though it wouldn't really mount due to lack of bayonet lug) & sling
6x30rd magazines wolf military classic, additional 120 rounds loose: 90 rounds wolf military classic, 30 rounds yugo incidenrary tracer (never know when you might wanna set something on fire).
this is my other primary if in an urban area or place where I would shoot at under 200 yards. or i just don't feel like waking up the whole neighborhood when i shoot.
Hi Point C9 (as seen in above)
except all FP 124gr handloads. i like those best and they're most accurate. loose ammunition- 100 rounds.
