Getting a Mosin Nagant 91-30 and want some optics... suggestions?
First you need a good mount.
PEM or PU......
Depends on how you wanna mount it.
ok, what's a good mount and scope?
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.
I'm actually looking to end up with something that looks a lot like this one with scope and bipod... he even has a nice butt pad on it... love it!
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.
The date is stamped on the receiver
Examples of 91/30 receiver:
Crap man, that's a damn nice Mosin.
For some reason, my photos aren't posting...
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".
That is a sexy monster. However, doesn't top mine.
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.
