You can always take the rear sights off tgere is a 3/8 rail under it. Leapers sales a one piece kit with rings on it. Put a long eye relief scope and use it in a scout rifle configuration.

The sniper was a Finnish soldier. The Finns were at war with the Soviets, the Brits and the French, and worked with the Germans. So it was Mosin-Nagant bearing Finns against Mosin-Nagant bearing Soviets. The Finns did take a lot more effort in accurizing their rifles; the Russians paid for that.

Be careful with Leapers mounts. I have had a couple in the past and the quality goes with the price.

Another thing I found out is that with the Range Finder, the highest level on it is 20, and so after calculating, I came around 65 meters between each level, 32.5 for each sub-level. But still, numbers aren't a strength of mine. especially when it comes to measuring distance. Anyone got any ideas on that???
1300 meters in ww2???????????? wtf?you read very wrong my freind, most snipers never shot over 400 yrds in ww2 with springfeilds and w/e else they could scope all were scrambling for sniper rifles at the time,1300 meters? no way not in ww2 europe, whoever wrote that book has no clue my uncle and father fought in ww2 1300 meter,s?You watching too much tv man srry.
