does anyone on /k/ actually have an obrez and would you cc it?
also is it worth the time and money to make or buy one?
Yes I have one.
No, I would not cc it because mine is not "legal" and also because it is still huge.
It was worth the time and money, because I paid $125 for a nugget and then just got drunk on vodka and sawed it up.
For the motherland.
Oh yeah dude. You can not hit shit with an obrez. Accuracy is non-existant. I wasn't going to saw mine off, but I neglected it for a few months, and it got all rusty. Also, like I said, vodka was involved.
Pretty short. Here's a screencap from a video of my buddy shooting it.
that's awesome but do you know how long of a barrel would make the accuracy ok but still keep it reasonably short?
The bullet literally starts to tumble after a few inches out the barrel.
You'd probably need at least double the barrel length of what most people chop It down at to maintain the bullets stability
what about this one?
I'm pretty interested in making an Obrez but I don't really want to have to pay the tax stamp. So my question is could I take the old receiver out, cut it with an Oxy/Acetylene torch and put in a new receiver after I cut the barrel?

In a completely dry perspective, I wouldn't obrez a nugget because it's bolt action and it seems like it would be pretty uncomfortable/difficult to cycle the bolt between rounds without shooting lefty.
Going off this, I'd imagine an obrez would make for a decent 'liberator' type gun, something to tuck in a wind breaker and blast a nork or ruskie in the back with it and explode the shit out of them, but even then any revolver would do the same job a lot better
I read somewhere that the minimum was 10" for the average 308/30 cal round to maintain 5moa but I can't find it for the life of me right now
The idea of it lighting shit on fire is cool, but in reality that huge fireball is gone in 1/100th of a second. It doesn't light anything on fire, and since I am shooting Russian surplus fmj out of it, it doesn't even leave a big hole in anything. The barrel is just too short to have much muzzle velocity. The only really impressive thing about it is the fucking volume of the sound. It shakes the window panes.
What's the point of turning it into an obrez if the bolt is on the right?
You have to be a left handed shooter to actually work the bolt comfortably without the hassle of doing it the other way.
Now if they start making mosin nagants with the bolt on the left then we can talk.
Back in the day when you could get a Mosin out of the crate for $80-90 it was just something fun to do. (Ignoring the $200 stamp if you just cut it down) Now since they're $190+ I think fewer people are willing to do it.

$5 for an AOW.
$200 for an SBR.
If you magically got a new Mosin receiver (none such exist - they'd have to be separated from the barrel and the stock before import and stamping) and then put a short barrel on it, with a pistol grip (with no stock), it'd be a legal pistol - no Tax Stamp.
If you had a pistol and put a forward grip on it, you've made an AOW (there a shit load of others, but this is the most common), $5 stamp.
If you cut down a rifle, it is an SBR, no matter if there's no stock or not. $200 Tax Stamp.
Once a raifu, always a raifu.
So, I like the A-10 as much as everyone else, but is there any advantage to using a gun like the GAU-8 over missiles or rockets for CAS?
