So I have seen videos and I know the arch angel stock lets you use a detached magazine but is there one in production that converts a Mosin Nagant easily yet?

Oh come on someone has at least converted a mag to work where should I start?

It is not easy to convert a fixed magazine rifle into one with a detachable magazine. If it were, you would see 10 and 20 round mags hanging out of every Mauser 98, Mosin and Springfield.

Detachable magazines have been made for both Mausers and Springfields. During WW1, the Germans made one for the Mauser to better adapt the rifle to trench warfare and the US made one for the Springfield for use in planes or balloons. I believe reproductions of both are or were available. As far as a Mosin goes, remember that the magazine and trigger guard are essentially one piece so it is a bit more involved.

The archangel stock uses detachable mags, fitting is required but it is not difficult.

Someone announced at SHOT that they were about ready to market a 10-rd detachable box mag for the Mosin, but I forget who it was. I also saw where someone was proposing to market a 3D printed 10-rd mag; not sure if they're one and the same or not.

The problem is making a box magazine work with rimmed cartridges; it's problematical, at best. Yeah, the Russians and the Brits both did it - although the Brits were arguably more successful. Mosins are very sensitive to the method used to load the mag (or stripper clip); Enfields are less so.

Some company is now making the mags commercially for these stocks and conversions. I seen a few for sale in the package at a gun show this past Saturday. Kind of pricey at $89 each. There is a local gunshop here doing the Archangel conversions here in Easton, Pa.. Easton Refinishing. The completed guns go for around $1500 each. They have a website for those interested.

That's insane $1500 to do what mount a scope and bolt a trigger in and transfer the Mosin parts? They had better be doing a lot more I guess I am interested in what they are doing for $1500

A real artist had one built up and almost ready for production. Unfortunately he died a few months ago..really talented guy. Some other big mosin nagant fan said his work is being continued. ..I never heard it would be 100$. See link below
