Mosin Nagant Scope Question
 
I just bought a mosin nagant m91/30 for cheap and decided to turn it into a hog rifle and i was curious about the type of scope mount to use. I was looking at knocking off the rear sight and putting these on it http://www.amazon.com/NcStar-RB27-1-Ring-3-Dovetail-High/dp/B000T3SO56/ref=sr_1_6?ie=UTF8&qid=1322361413&sr=8-6


is that a good way to go?

A lot of people use a side mount for standard scopes on the nagant, which requires the bolt handle be turned down in order to clear the scope. I have seen people use a forward mount which mounts on the rear sight (sight parts removed), and works well with scout and reflex optics. There are rail versions as well as the one pictured. There is also a mount which requires the front ring be drilled and tapped as well as the bolt handle modification. Cost of parts for these things is usually pretty low, I suggest getting a good gun smith to drill and tap and do the bolt modifications. Not getting the holes lined up and straight will make your scope crooked, and a poorly done bolt handle can break off.

Thanks wilder. I really didn't want to permanently do anything to the rifle but i was considering buying a new bolt assembly and getting it redone but I think for now I'm going to go with the scout style mount.

The entire rear sight comes off. There is a 3/8 dovetail mount underneath. If you knock the pins out the sight just taps forward off of the receiver. I mounted a pistol scope on mine like that. Then when you decide you want to go back it is no big deal.

I wouldnt do the scout mount i had one on my mosin nagant and it never kept a consistent shot group hell never hit paper waisted alot of money on it mainly ammo tryin to get it going after 200 rounds it is in the epic fail pile plus time was waisted, plus i had to get huge zip tie to keep it held down. Anything worth doing is worth doing right. Get er drilled n tap a classic P/U scope would look good or if ur finacialy tight the 3rd of his photos is an excelent choice to but ya scout mount no.

Could you use that bolt handle with the mount in wilder's 3rd picture. What type of mount is that?

I've never seen that prefab bolt body before either. looks like it would save you money on having a smith modify your existing bolt. You may need to remove wood (or plastic as the case may be) under the bolt handle so it can close all the way.

I took mine out the other day and hit three shots in a row at 100 yards with about a 7 inch spread. (We used a pumpkin). Open sights. I wouldn't change a thing. I love that gun.
