If you are not interested in spending $200 to mount a scope on a $100 rifle there is another alternative. Beneath the standard Mosin rear sight there is a 3/8 dovetail base. Remove the old rear sight and mount your scope. You may need a pistol scope with enough eye relief due to the distance.
"The whole of the Bill (of Rights) is a declaration of the right of the people at large or considered as individuals.... It establishes some rights of the individual as unalienable and which consequently, no majority has a right to deprive them of." (Albert Gallatin of the New York Historical Society, October 7, 1789)
