Thanks for clearing that up for me, was starting to think I should have bought 2. Should be getting a Nagant soon, but I'm picky. Has to be 1942 or previous.

Not sure yet, I kinda prefer the hex, but round will work too, the biggest thing that I like about them is that you can all but guarantee that any given Mosin (depending on the year of manufacture) was used in WWII.
