made in 1942 unissued Mosin Nagant M91/30 Izhevsk is ready for hunting, shoots MOA, at 100 yards, and I'll be confident to shoot at a deer out to 300 yards or more. this vid is all shooting NO talking, mostly hits with a couple misses because of shooting at targets, that were already down. note all hits on that steel plate(which weighs around 31 lbs) are dead center, you can see the dark holes in it as it swings. distance is 102 yards verified by rangefinder. I now have a MOA shooter that would cost 700 to 1000 dollars to buy if it was a modern sporter. Here is what I have in it.
cost of rifle in original battle form: has a mirror bright, shiny bore. rifling grooves and lands are as new, 110 bucks OTD.
dumped the original stock for a Boyds Walnut Prairie Hunter, cost: 40 bucks. local gun shop got stuck with it, it was unfinished.sandpaper, stain, stock sealer and Tru-oil I had on hand, lets say 20 bucks for a total of 60 bucks for a stock that if checkered could put a Browning or Remington stock to shame.
Scope is a Ultimate Arms Gear 2-7x32mm Long Eye Relief scout scope, cost was 60 bucks shipped from ebay.
mount is a 100mm Leapers Accu-shot, with 3 screws in the clamp, came with the rings which have 4 screws in each ring. its rock solid, hasn't moved after 650+ rounds, of stout ammo. cost 19 bucks shipped from Opticsplanet.com.
Finnish Sear and trigger Slack Spring from C&R Surplus Spring LLC: 22 bucks.
hunting deer with a rifle intended to be a Nazi Killer: PRICELESS.
a huge thank you to all the guys at G&G that helped me do it right. I am grateful.
