Howling Raven Mosin magazines ready to ship

The much expected Howling Raven 10 round magazine extension for the Mosin Nagant is finally here for order, not pre-order but actual order. I am already starting to see satisfied customers posting images of their magazines installed on their rifles on my Facebook news feed. The final price for the magazine is $69.99, while the website lists a price of $65.99. I assume that the lower price is because you are buying it directly from the manufacture as opposed to purchasing it from a secondary source or dealer. There also seems to be a product code that will get you that lower price as well, if I’m not mistaken.

  • Made out of a glass filled nylon polymer
  • No permanent rifle alterations or gunsmithing necessary
  • Connects to the bottom of the existing magwell
  • 100% Made in Texas
  • Package includes the extension box, ladder spring and a small wedge material piece

At first I was curious as to why the magazine appears to be almost three times the length of the original Mosin internal magazine. But now I assume that this has to do with the additional spring pressure/space that is required for the additional five rounds of 7.62x54R. The magazine extension is made out of a sort of glass filled nylon polymer, and attaches to the Mosin Nagant rifle without any additional work being completed on it. The company also went to some lengths to ensure that it worked with the majority of Nagant variants out there. And if you have a Nagant that this doesn’t fit, the company will work with you on getting you a refund and the magazine back. Their commercial for it isn’t half bad!

  • iksnilol

    Reminds me of the extended hunting rifle mags in Fallout 4: very long for the amount of rounds.

    • Dracon1201

      I was hoping for more like 10 in the .50 instead of the huge 7rd.

  • Arie Heath

    I see a new addition to my deer rifle in the near future.

    • gusto

      why do you need a 15round magazine on a hunting rifle?

      • Dracon1201


      • Laserbait

        What’s this “need” thing you speak of?

  • Hudson

    It’s time for a run and gun!

    • DB

      You’d “Run with your Gun” right past all the targets by the time you beat the second round into battery!

  • Tyler McCommon

    Nyet Comrade. Rifle is fine.

    MY JANK-O-MATIC 6000 is finally complete.

    I like how the second video says “smoothly fire 10 rounds out of any Mosin.” I can’t see how you can smoothly shoot 3 rounds out of any Mosin (including mine). They are fun rifles, but they sure aren’t smooth.

    • Bob

      Mine isn’t so bad. I can shoot without having to beat on the bolt with the palm of my hand, but my father’s can require some… “Encouragement” from time to time.


      The Finnish Moist Nuggets have pretty smooth bolts, I’d argue just about as good as a Gewehr 98.

      • Nathan Harris

        I’ve only handled a couple of the Finnish rifles, but they feel better than your average Mosin. Still, the “pretty smooth” is kind of telling.

    • Southpaw89

      I can smoothly fire ten rounds, its the next then that start to get difficult.

    • Rhino

      I have a Hex receiver Moist Nugget from 1929 that is surprisingly smooth, I shot about 30 rounds in a short succession (till the cosmo started steaming off the upper fore grip) and the action was still running smoothly. My friends on the other hand was a 1943 round receiver and it needed a mallet, a few choice words and Stalin’s guiding hands to even get the bolt open after just 3 rounds. I got lucky no doubt with mine.

    • Ira

      Maybe I just lucked out, but my Mosin is awesome. The bolt is smooth and easy to manipulate quickly. The trigger, though very very long and mushy, has zero grit and a predictable breaking point. I agree that the fact that it doesn’t automatically eject stripper clips could be annoying if you didn’t know about it and you were used to rifles that auto eject them, but i’ve never really had a problem with speedy 5rd reloads. Moist Nugget gets five red stars from me.

    • White Knight Leo

      I have no problems with mine. Sounds like you haven’t got all of the preservative fluild out of it.

      • Nathan Harris

        You would be incorrect; I cleaned all of the cosmoline out. Mosins just aren’t the smoothest of guns. A hundred dollar gun doesn’t have to be though.

  • Bigbigpoopi

    10 round Obrez.

  • kbroughton77

    A $70 magazine extension for my rifle I paid $115? Sign me up!
    Not really, think I’ll just stick to surplus stripper clips for my mosin

    • Nimrod

      I paid $39 for one my Mosins, $80 for the other.

      • mosinman

        $90 here

        • Ira

          Mine was free.

      • Drunk Possum

        $75 for me

        • White Knight Leo

          Numbers-matching pristine 1943 model: $170 for me.

    • DB

      Does anyone know if that price includes a mallet to assist in “smooth” firing of the Moist Nugget pole?

    • Jesus Marquez

      havent you heard mosins go for like 250-300 now

  • Billy bob

    Would have been nice to have when the ammo was still cheap.

  • DwnRange

    now if they only make a “taller” scope mount………

  • Major Tom

    What part of “Nyet! Rifle is fine!” don’t you understand aftermarket people?!?!?!?

    • Laserbait

      Da! Rifle is better with 10 rounds now!

      • mosinman

        5 more fascisti yuo put in grave tovarish

    • Pete Sheppard


  • Kelly Jackson

    It really isn’t any worse looking than the ideas being produced back when these bolt actions were new.

  • SirOliverHumperdink

    Now make a semi auto conversion kit like the Pederson device- with a phone charger and flashlight.

    • Southpaw89

      Naw, need to go full Snabb conversion, full powered 54 baby, no wimpy little pistol sized cartridges.

  • Kinda want that $$$cope mount.

  • Spencerhut

    Garbage stick upgrade? WTF?

  • Bob

    This is way more tacticool. Just think how you can do the mag hold now instead of that boring traditional rifle hold on the forearm like some fud. Just need a laser, light, and pistol grip, along with the scope and bent bolt conversion in the video.

    • Ira

      Should probably jungle tape another $70 5rd extension on there for good measure.

  • StraightshooterJeff

    Just buy a Lee Enfield.

  • mazkact

    Nothing to do with the magazine, that scope mount looks like a nightmare waiting to happen. If you just must mount a scope on a Mosin..Rocksolid IND or a scout mount from Sk mount is the right answer.

  • derfelcadarn

    Very nice , but great would I vklve remove le box mags.

  • Ira

    This plus a scout mount/scope plus a monte carlo stock would make a cheap effective scout rifle.

  • steveday72

    If it was for a sub-MOA rifle then a $70 magazine would be worth it, but not a crappy relic.

    It’s clever what they’ve done and I hope they make some money to have made the research & investment worthwhile, but it’s not really cost-effective for consumers.

  • Ben Pottinger

    I got tired of having to pound the bolt open after every shot and sold mine. I bought it because it was cheap and I was on a Russian kick (I also had an SVT-40, Russian “garand” which was fun). I figured I already had enough surplus rifles with my Garand, K98, Enfield, K31 Swiss and SKS. The Enfield, K98 and K31 are in a totally different league then the Mosin.

    I know people with 4-5 of them. I guess I just never got the Mosin “bug”.

  • RickOAA .

    Now the most tacticool moist nougat garbage rod can be made.

  • Jamie Clemons

    Dang I got to get me one of these. Way cheaper than an archangel stock.

  • midnitelamp

    shoulda spent time on 20 round mags for svd, svt, and psl. I know all three are different but I imagine they would sell a whole lot more than this mosin mag.

  • Mike Lashewitz

    Smooth is not a word I would use. Effective maybe but not smooth…

  • Cottersay

    The extended mag is a great idea, but why are the shooters in this video dismounting the rifle from their shoulders every time they work the bolt???

    • Leigh Rich

      The Mosin bolt is a rough one to operate.

      • Cottersay

        No wonder why millions of poor Russians were slaughtered in WW2 (not to mention their incompetent Generals.) I’d take a Kar98k any day!

  • Leigh Rich

    $70 on the mag for a $90 base rifle. Kind of like putting lipstick on a pig.

  • Scott N. Gala

    I’ve bought a 20 rifle crate..every rifle has a smooth action on the bolts and some feel like they have had trigger work… Mine is awesome and right on at 200 yards…
