$10's, $100's, or $1000's?

Okay back to the OP...

Shot the new one today, cycles like a brand new rifle and unlike my other 91/30 it does not shoot to the right. It does shoot about 4" high at 100 yds, but the rear sight cannot be lowered. I heard one way around this is to get electrical insulation and add a mm or 2 to the front blade. Either that, or put the bayonet on and then I can't really use the front site at all.

Picture is 5 shots at 25 yards, at 100 I hit paper 9/10 times. I have some getting used to when it comes to these sights. Probably would help if my eyes were better too!

You might need to file out the bayonet a bit to make an acceptable fit on the barrel. I think if you try to install it "as-is" you would have a really difficult time to remove it. Some suspect that once the bayonet was installed, it was never removed. When you slip it on and rotate it 90* it will not interfere with the front sight.

IIRC the Mosins were made to shoot a bit high @100 yds...

With one of mine, the bayo goes on and off easily, with another, it's a real PITA to get on and off...You can polish up the inside of the mount, that may help...

They were also made to be shot with the bayo mounted which improves the barrel harmonics, improving accuracy, try that next time...

JW is right, mounted properly, it won't interfere with the front sight...push it all the way down to the sight mount and rotate it counterclockwise until it sits in the notch. The bayo should sit to the right of the bbl. In the pic, it looks like you haven't seated it all the way on...

you are correct, it is too tight a fit and I do not want to force it. Outside of taking the occasional pic, I have no need for that added 10 feet of length

Rumor has it that for some reason they become more accurate with the bayonet on. I have yet to try though.
