I did basically the same on a M44 I had a couple of years ago. I then wanted a custom made Mauser 8mm with turned bolt and lathe turned barrel with Redfield peep sights so I placed the M44 on Gunbroker.com and sold it. The person who bought said he bought it for the research company he was working for in Georgia. He would not give specifics but said his company did research for the military and they were assessing older cartridges going back to pre-WW2 for a possible new round to replace the .223! What the hell! In today's world anything is possible but sounded like bunk to me except I got a lot more than I thought I would for a gun I originally paid $85 for in new condition in 2002!

I want to add a sight to my newly acquired mosin nagant and can't decide wether to get a red dot to fit on the iron sights or go ahead and get the modified sniper bolt in order to mount a scope? Also I don't think I'll get too many chances to shoot over a 100 yards so would it be worth it to get the scope? Opinions will be greatly appreciated.

Just curious, what is the point?

When you get through with your project, you will still have a rifle that was obsolete 70 years ago. For the money you put into it, not counting the time, you could buy a modern, accurate rifle.

All dressed up and no where to go.....

they arent obsolete anymore than bows and arrows or shotguns or 1911s or revolvers are. its a good solid accurate bolt action. the only thing innaccurate about them is the cheap surplus ammo. run good quality hand loads or modern made factory stuff most will shoot 1-2moa sometimes sub moa.

I'm not going to spend a fortune on it. I know it's nothing special. I just want something besides iron sights.

Actually you want the ones made before 42, when they took time in making them. After that they pumped em out like crazy and didn't pay to much attention to detail.
