Default Type 53 Nagant

Just bought a chinese type 53, ditching the wood stock for ATI black synthetic, my question is do i need the barrel bands and if so how do i get them off, if i don't need them i'll to cut them. Can i put a scope on somehow if I remove the leaf sights?

Hopefully this video will answer some of your questions.

But for the barrel band, on my M91/30 I can take off the rear one but the front one is too small to fit over the front sight, I'm not sure how that is for the T53's, but I've seen scope tapped and put behind the rear sight and sometimes on the chamber wall

You should be able to drill and tap where the sights were, but I would ask a gunsmith just to be safe.
