CM-2 & Urals in action



Log in to see fewer ads
I found this video on Y-tube.
Look at the rifles they are all using.




I think thats what the surplus CM-2 & Urals for sale now in USA were used in Eastern Europe.....club rifles.
And looks too be still in use.

I am looking to see if my spare stock I have for my BB could be turned into a 3P stock
with out destroying it or just start over.
The BB would be a killer silly-wet rifle....for some one set up like this.
This Blaster stock is designed for the silly-wet standing position only, works great for that but nothing else.

I would like to use my BB as a prone match rifle.
This is probably the way to do it & maybe use my CM-2 stock as a guide.

How the heck did you find that vid? Who would think to combine ABBA and Queen? I'm glad to see some others having fun with their CM2s and Vostoks and also for the fact the shaky videographer wasn't shooting.

Thanks for the post!

Kind of by accident.
I searched people shooting prone on You-tube to see how there rifles were set up.
Its amazing how fast a person can get side tracked on You-tube.

I agree, a while back I went on there looking for reviews on Taurus and S&W .22 revolvers and ended up watching a bunch of videos of people ferreting, hunting rabbits with ferrets, somewhere in Spain, I believe. I don't remember about the reviews, but the ferreting looked pretty **** cool.

Hey Swiss,
I'm responding to your comment about making your BB a prone rifle. I'd suggest narrowing that thought down to a specific type of prone, i.e. light rifle or match rifle. As a dedicated prone competitor who doesn't like heavy rifles, I personally wouldn't want the BB to be a prone rifle if I had a CM-2. The single load issue alone is enough to thwart my interest. Conventional matches are 160 or 320 shots and any distraction caused by loading difficulty will hurt you eventually.
I am addicted to having an accessory rail and have given serious thought to installing one on my BB. Adjustable cheekpiece and buttplate are also worth the expense. Watch out, prone is habit forming. Hope you had a great Christmas!

Are you telling me the match's you shoot in with your CM-2 the rifles must be single loaded & no magazines.

I have looked on the E-net & there are prone match's here in MN.
I guess I should look into the rules....LOL

I am going to do this just for the fun of it & maybe compete in the prone match here on RFC.
Must have a "Winter Firearm project" We are having an old fashion winter here in MN.
I did a little work on the stock today. Dug out an adjustable Morgan butt pad, it's like 20 years old.


I think its going to work ??? Now I am going to find an forearm rail.
The rifle weighs 8.5 lbs. in the Blaster stock & the trigger pull is so low that my RCBS pull scale can't measure it & that would be below 8oz.
I did that by accident last sept. , but has been working fine with no problem.."O".
The BB has such a nice two stage trigger.

Yep, I'm the spoil sport. Did anyone notice the lack of hearing or eye protection ? Other than that great video. I just hate seeing kids shooting without ear and eye PPE, even Smallbore.

Nice seeing these rifles in use.
But they wouldn't be shooting at our gunclub without ear protection and safety glasses.
Did you notice the shooting position with the feet wide apart. They would do better with the off foot up againts the other knee.

Nothing wrong with a wide leg position. None the US shooters that won medals prone last year, Emmons, McPhail, Uptagrafft, or Hein use the old Scandinavian foot position. Come to think of it Segei Martynov is probably the only shooters to fit that description. He shoots with his right knee drawn up very high, and his left leg turn to the right. His whole body position looks strange, probably not recommended for beginners, but it clearly works for him.
