Well guys, finally got a few extra dollars to spend. I've been waiting on this purchase for a while and I just clicked on the buy now button. I'd like to hear your guys impressions of the sights if you've used them, how the sighting in process works, how the 100-600 yard adjustments work, etc. I will be making a product review video detailing the install process and the afore-mentioned subjects. Looking forward to seeing how well this and Josh Smith's corking process improves the accuracy on my 91/30. This is the next purchase in line unless Datamancer comes out with his invention first.

I have thought about those sights as well. Looking forward to your video review. I bought the Prairie stock from Boyd's like Gunney has. I love it. I ended up cutting the barrel down to 24 inches and put a LER scope on my mosin. My next one is going to stay true to it's original form except maybe a sight change. I am hoping for a M39 someday but will probably get another 91/30 first. My budget is a little stretched. In the last year I caught a Milsurp bug and have purchased a K31, Mosin, and am currently saving up for a CMP trip for a Garand. Let us know when the review is up.

I have these on 2 M39's and a 91/30. I really like them. It improved my groups on all three rifles. I have the rear and the front aperture on all three. I also like the sight picture they give my crappy eyes. Very easy to install too.

Not knocking them, but I like to have my peep closer to my eye. Cant do a lyman because the bolt and split bridge.

If someone made one of these I would buy one. Im sure with the cocking piece moving a but side to side it may not be x ring accurate, but sure it will suffice for big game hunting.

I have had a coupla the Mojo sights they work just fine. The truth is on. M44 or 91-30 the sights are crude. The front posts are way to thick for my Mark I eyeball. A Mojo can help some but I know I can no longer shoot with Iron sights. The way I once could.
Changeing the sights won't help much.

So here's what the sights look like installed:

The installation was a breeze, too easy if you ask me, the fit and finish is amazing, these sights are well designed, look beautiful and are very light. I went to the range today to sight it in but, unfortunately, I ran into a snag, I had lowered the elevation as much as possible, but even at 200 yards, I was hitting 20 feet above the target. If I tried lowering the sights any more, the adjustment screw would obscure the aperture. Now I suspect this is my fault as prior to installation, I corked the barrel, as described by Josh Smith, and I suspect that the upward pressure is causing the issue with the bullet hitting so high. I'd appreciate any advice or info the community may have. Thanks.

And if still shooting high, try Josh's front sight system - raising the front post will lower the point of impact.

Back out the set screw in the middle of the elevation knob and remove the cork. My mojo's work great.
When I was trying to sight it in, I had backed out that set screw so far it was obstructing the aperture and I was still shooting 20 ft high. I've already taken out the cork, just have to wait till I can get to the range again, hopefully sometime next month.

Installing the Mojo MicroClick Snapsights

Here's the install video I made, as you can see, it's something anyone can do easily with basic tools, it's a great low weight alternative to having a scope on your rifle and allows you to see what you're shooting at:

The mojo i bought made my rifle shoot 8" high at 100 yards and the screw would obstruct the sights
