I have not done anything that can not be undone. I also have a Russian SKS with a Tapco stock and all the accessories. But I still have all the original stuff to go back on if I ever wanted to.

It is also important to remember that the Mosin Nagant can be purchased for under $100. If someone wanted to do some home gunsmithing just to "get their feet wet" I would think this would be an ideal gun to play with.

I agree Rick, I bought one just to play with. Not worth anything, never will be. Look at my post on down the page...

well I gave $70.00 just to play with. Had I wanted to collect or keep, I would not had done what I did. BUT I have enjoyed playing and when I get done I'll have a million dollars worth of fun....

Is the scope mounted on the bolt?

How is there enough space for the bolt? Scope Looks to far back.

First: Gardex the scope is not on the bolt. The scope swings to the left like they used to do with tope eject rifles or to use the sights if needed. This is mostly shot from bench, so no hurry.

Now jjfuller1, the bolt handle has plenty of room.I could take a better pic afterwhile. Believe me, had the rifle been worth something, I would have kept it as is.

Thanks for that. It looks pretty sweet by the way.

I put a scope on mine (eyes don't do open sites very well anymore). It worked out well because my youngest is a "purist" and the Mosin I got him was missing the front sight but other wise in great shape. Knocked the sight off mine, put on his and two happy Mosin owners. I wouldn't hesitate to take a shot at a whitetail out to 250 yards. Best $69 I ever spent.

As one gets older his eyes are not as sharp as before. At my age I need all the help I can get just to see the target. Optics seem to be the only way for me. I have an assorted collection of mil-surps (15) all in original condition but am considering optics on some of them for tired, old eyes. If you can't see it, you can't hit it!
