Default Mosin Sniper

well i picked up a mosin nagant sniper model today. rguns over in carpenertville il. had a few left and i went down picked through the lot looking for one that lined up decently with the sights and the scope over the bore. unfortunately the crappiest stock was the best functional that i could determine without shooting. the shiny bit on the scope is not metal its some sort of packing material that is pretty gummy and cleaned off easily.

numbers on the rifle all match including the turned down bolt which is not a reweld or melted one lending credence to its authenticity. it has the extra "C" style stamp next to the arsenal stamp.

the scope shows that this particular rifle was re-arsenaled at some point which is common for these rifles.

thats what i figured it meant. re-arsenaled in 64 and some point after that or at the time mated to the rifle. the bore and sights line up with a laser as does the scope. everything seems centered.

this isnt me, but it shows what these old rifles are capable of with handloads:

That young man did some fine shooting! 850 yards in a twenty MPH wind..... his 'wind doping skills' are pretty good. The Mosin Nagant rifle can really strut her stuff with good loads and a good rifleman!
