UPDATE: Looks like the above photo is a photoshop. Thanks to JM for finding the original. These obrez pistols do exist and the bottom photo does appear authentic.
Wow! Just when you think you have seen it all, you see a photo of a Mosin Nagant pistol!

Go read about it at Real Gun Guys.

UPDATE: AB posted a link in the comments to this photo of one that appears have been cut down to only a few inches of barrel!

    You can do a title 1 (non NFA) Mosin Nagant Pistol build in the USA by taking a rifle receiver (or two) and de-milling them to BATFE spec, and then welding them back together... creating a new virgin receiver.

    That is how I was able to build mine out here in California.. (we can't do SBR's)

    Holly Crap! I bet that thing kicks like a stuck mule!

    I own a M44 Carbine and that thing'll leave some mean bruises on your shoulder. Can't even image what this'll do to your hand.
