    I have a Mosin-Nagant M44 and I was considering getting a scope for it and practicing my long range shooting. I need to get a bent bolt conversion kit, which I'm told comes with the bent bolt, drill and tap, and scope rings. My question is actually two-fold.

    Question 1: I want to have a gunsmith drill and tap my reciever because they would know what they are doing and I don't. Any ideas what this would cost me?

    Question 2: Anyone know any scopes that look like a WWII Mosin scope that I can get for a reasonable price?

    My smith just did a D&T for a Mossberg. $35. YOUR mileage may vary!

    Actually, there is a website the sells a scope mount for the M44 that does not require t&d. The mount sits in place of the rear sight and bolts to the same mount. I'll scrounge around and try to find it again if ya want.
