I have wanted to build a medium bore Mosin sporter like the Finns use for some time now.  I wanted a 9.3X53R but that proved nearly impossible so I started down the path of doing 375/444 (375 JDJ).  As I collected parts and asked questions, a guy on one of the local forums offered me a complete 45 70.  I bit and payed way to much for a rifle i cant get to feed properly.  What's interesting, is it appears to have been converted in Russia.

I am in the process of modifying a standard Mosin Magazine to see if I can get it to feed rounds.

Anyone ever heard of 45 70 sporters coming from Russia?  here's some pics:

I never heard of Russian conversions to 45/70 but it's a fascinating idea.  Nice looking rifle for a starting point as well.

Be sure to post results of your work.

affraid  WOW! Totally kewl. Nope, never heard of such a thing. But I have heard the Mosin Nagant has been changed into nearly every conceivable configuration over the years, over there. Lots of records still stand using these actions.

Check your ejector assembly and see it its hitting the interior of your stock, causing the rounds to not feed correctly. Just a thought.

Have you fired this thing?
What are the markings on the receiver, and barrel?

Just noticed this thread, and doesn't surprise me it doesn't work. The "convertor" probably didn't spend the time or money on checking the small things to make it work properly.

A quick check would be to make sure the rim thickness is the same on both cartridges, not to mention the diameter of the cartridge rim is good to go. This will be affected within the extractor dimensions needed for proper function, not to mention the feeding properties from the magazine, interrupter, ect.

Whats the status? Did you get any where on the feeding issue?

If not, where exactly is the hang up occurring? Down in the well, before the ramp, at the ramp...etc
