No. But standard 91-30s are far from Corvettes.

If you get it drilled and tapped for a scope mount you're going to have to bend the bolt too.

OK, 1969 step-side Chevy pickup then.

I tried to get satisified with a scope mount on my SKS, but it just wasn't designed for a scope, so i resigned myself to enjoying it as it was designed, mostly.

I will try and find an original scope even if it's not the one I use. Do you know the power on them? I think of the newer stuff Jmeck looks better by far but The Brass Stacker allows you to still use the iron sights as needed which is a big plus. Not sure what I'm going to do yet. Did they ever bipod those in WWII?

Thanks! How much extra do you think a clean Mosin like that is worth?

I'd pay up to $180-$200 for one that slick, assuming the bore is in as nice condition as the rest of it.

Either this one or this one are great if done right, and you can add a nice russian optic (Yes, the russians make good optics) and you even have the choice of a BP type mount with a top rail, then you can add your own railed optic. The rails are very reliable, as well as the mounts and scopes, I've never had a problem with any of them keeping a zero after taking one off and putting it back on the same way.
