all pu snipers are round receivered with steel mounts. do not loosen the rings to "level" the scope it is canted in order to line up the reticle and bore in the verticle when the rifle is canted to level the reticle when looking through it. loosening the rings to level the rifle and level the scope is a huge mistake and if you do it the thing will never track true when using the bdc.

mine loves winchester white box 180grain. commonly groups less than an inch at 100.

i dont run surplus through it. ive got beater mosins for that junk.

the strike through nmbers are done at time of rearsenal when the soviets refurbed and new numbers are reissued this can be done in stampings or electro pencil and is called force matching. after the rearsenal they were packed away and didnt see day light until you got one.

on top of each dial are a couple of screws two are small and hold the bdc and windage drums tight. zero your rifle with the chosen load then loosen the screws not removing them and the bdc and windage can be set to zero and 100. the range is in meters i zeroed mine for 100yds its close enough. seems to track true enough from 100 to 300yds.

i really like the pu scope. when you learn to hold it with the same eye relief and use the tippy tip of the reticle its amazingly accurate

A rifle as long as the 91/30 must hit the POA at 100 unless maybe it is a smooth bore musket. Sober up fellows. There's no magic to the Mosin. Don't make too much of the double stamp either. The soviets were not as thoughtful and consistent in reissuing this rifle than the starry eyed American enthusiast wants to believe. The PU scope reticle is not centered, so moving it as you watch feels like a revelation. It was indeed a great tool in the field. The rifle was already obsolete when WW2 began. It remained in service not because it was exceptional, but because it was simple rugged and plentiful. I hope not to step on any toes but if I have forgive me for I am a friend of the Mosin not a foe.

Cept no one fielded a fundamentally better sniper rifle scope combo till the mid 1980's. In vietnam we cobbled together hunting rifles and hunting scopes. Not even the vaunted svd was a truly better system. The 03a4 garand m1d british enfield snipers all suffered from shoddy mounts optics or both.

The ruskies churned those things out purpose built in the tens of thousands and they flat out worked for the intended purpose. The worlds greatest ssuper power couldn't figure it out for another 60 years and honestly we couldn't produce sniper rifles enmass today like the russians did and have them combat rugged.

These are fun rifles with a lot of history. I have a post war Hungarian version that shoots suprisingly well for the technology. Every military collector should own one of these.

Keep an eye on AIM and Classic. Hoping they still have some to sell when you get your tax return, they are well worth the money.
