    First you need a good mount.

    I've heard good things about the brass stacker but it needs a long eye relief scope(correct me if I'm wrong on the term)

    There isn't a good scope or sight for any specific rifle, unless its designed for that rifle.

    You are looking for a good mount, and I would recommend the JMECK.

    So find a good scope, as I don't know what you are looking for in a scope. I'm not trying to judge you, but based on their question, and the fact you are using a m91/30, (not a bad rifle) it sounds like you are a beginner. Again, excuse me if I am wrong.

    What date is your 91/30? It can affect accuracy.

    If its a 42,43,44, I would just recommend you get a scope at Walmart. If its a Russian, and another year, I still would just pick something up at a sporting goods store.

    If its Finnish, invest in something nice.

    Yeah pretty much new to a lot of this... I don't have the info on it yet... it was late and I bid on it before thinking to ask about dates and origin. I have a feeling it's Russian. Hopefully pre 42.

    As I said I am a bit new but could someone identify the scopes and mounts used in this pic... looks like they have 2-3 different scopes and mounts.

    Your looking at doing some work. If you want to mount a scope like the ones in the pic, first thing you need to do is google "the bolt man".

    A lot of those are JMECKs. Like I said, they are the best. You have to identify what you want in a scope yourself.

    Am i wrong for thinking that scoping a classic & clean MN rifle is like mounting airbags and Onstar in a '65 Corvette?

    I agree. I wouldn't hesitate to buy one that is already scoped but I cant bring myself to deface one myself.
