Here are the only markings I can see. Although I haven't taken the scope off of it.

Heres the thread that Jonm started, pics of his rifle and mine are there...

http://www.firearmstalk.com/forums/f37/mosin-sniper-42492/

I would check out a ex-sniper carefully, many are ex-snipers because they have been shot so much that they are no longer as accurate..

I actually got lucky, I came across a actual 1942 scope and found a 1942 rifle with all the sniper acceptance marks but was never made into one... Mine was meant to be a sniper, just a little late...

You said that you wanted one like enemy at the gates... I believe that one was a earlier PEM, not the PU you mostly see... The earlier ones used the hex receivers and the scope was mounted further forward than the later PU

I don't know, while I love the Mosin, it seems like "snipering" one at this

point would almost be an exercise in futility except for the most

aesthetically determined.

There is, after all, the SVD, where Mother Russia has already done

all the work for you. Personally, I would consider just getting a

Dragonuv and calling it a day. My M44s and 91/30 have a special

place in my heart and collection, and as old school shooters, I

may always love them best...

The reason I want to do mine is mostly for aesthetics. But I figure if I can hit cans at 100 yards, then a scope is a feasible addition.

Mine MUST be of the original sniper style though, our I simply won't be satisfied.

Why do you think it would be an exercise in futility? Just wondering if there are things I would be overlooking about how to get it back to a sniper-esque form.I have the tools available to do most work I could think of and I think I am very capable of performing it,it was a breeze for me to convert my saiga and that involves replacing the fire control group,fitting another trigger guard on installing a pistol grip and ace stock,And drilling and tapping the front trunnion for a bullet guide and installing it. So I don't think I'd be completely over my head,but part of me doing this is because I actually Want to do it myself,not just fir the cheapest way to a good ex sniper reproduction

I'm in the process of making a sniper repro. The last thing in my checklist is the pu scope and stock fitting. Mitchel's is way to expensive. Especially for how much you can buy the mosin for at dunham's in michigan.

If you're determined to do it, this is the best way...

jstrong, personally, I don't see the point.

For me, it would be turning an inexpensive and fun shooter into

an expensive mediocre LR rifle, and by virtue of the late date of the

work the historic significance would be lost.

But it's all personal, and if you want to do it, IMO you should do it

right.

I think I've seen a pic of something like that on google images, but I think a bullpup bolt rifle is not only impractical, but to me would be a total PITA.
