Haven't seen this anywhere so a soliciting advice, am planning on testing the theory of whether Mosins were designed to be shot with or without bayonets extended. 1 Should I sight in the Mosin first or fire with the factory setting? 2 Does anyone know whether the Mosin was fired for accuracy with bayonet attached by the factory to set the sights? 3 Will fire Mosin with and without Bayonet to determine shift in point of impact and note any differences in group size either reduction or spread. 4 Will conduct same experiment with M44 that I also don't own.
