First you need a good mount.

I've heard good things about the brass stacker but it needs a long eye relief scope(correct me if I'm wrong on the term)

There isn't a good scope or sight for any specific rifle, unless its designed for that rifle.

You are looking for a good mount, and I would recommend the JMECK.

So find a good scope, as I don't know what you are looking for in a scope. I'm not trying to judge you, but based on their question, and the fact you are using a m91/30, (not a bad rifle) it sounds like you are a beginner. Again, excuse me if I am wrong.

What date is your 91/30? It can affect accuracy.

If its a 42,43,44, I would just recommend you get a scope at Walmart. If its a Russian, and another year, I still would just pick something up at a sporting goods store.

If its Finnish, invest in something nice.

Yeah pretty much new to a lot of this... I don't have the info on it yet... it was late and I bid on it before thinking to ask about dates and origin. I have a feeling it's Russian. Hopefully pre 42.

I'm actually looking to end up with something that looks a lot like this one with scope and bipod... he even has a nice butt pad on it... love it!
