I'm shoping for a new rifle... show us how you can mod a Mosin.
I did purchase above trigger but have yet to install it. I also put shrink wrap on the front post to make it wider for my weak eyes.
$ 77.00 for a trigger? thats about what i paid for any of my mosins. ive got 5 of em. but to each his own, good luck and happy shooting!
My friend has the 91-30. At 50yds. its easy to stay in the ten ring. I want to see what they are capible of at 100 to 150yds. im thinking mil-surplus mounts, tapped and drilled reciever, curved bolt handle, and maybe a 2x mil-surp scope...Id probably keep the front sight to keep it more original. good or bad idea?
If you want a versitile old mil-surp that you can turn into a tackdriver I suggest a K31. They come stock with light 2 stage trigger, and most of the ammo out there for it is pretty decent. Also, it is easy to scope it with a scout mount or a reciever clamp mount and twice as accurate as any Mosin.
This guy has all the stuff you want. Great site and best prices

i do have a m44 with a scout scope mount on and it is quite accurrate i was suprised .i would take this rifle hunting in a heartbeat!it.http://i98.photobucket.com/albums/l272/billhedges/messyguns237.jpg if i can get under 1 in. @100yds. with a 65 yrear old $45 rifle who knows what YOU can do?
I'll tell yah, at first I wasn't sure about the scout mounts but now I am sold. They seem to be the best way to scope any older type rifle. I had one on my SKS and it was rock solid.
it doesnt seem like they would work very well ,but im convinced. the proofs on the paper! BTW that group was from a bench rested ,locked down rifle . that was the firearm not me. gotta keep myself honest..
I stopped shooting from the bench for that reason. I want to get better in sutuations that actually may happen and if you need to shoot I don't think there will be a bench at your side at that very moment. From now on, I stand or go prone. I also started shooting in the early morning before the sun comes up and when it sets to get a feel for different lighting and temperatures.
Yes, I am a nut case!!
I sit and stand unsuported. However if I get to excited i like to use a rest
Sandbag, .50cal ammo can covered in leather...but i never use a sled rest
that was when i was sighting that rifle in. just seeing how well the rifle shot. i didnt want any input from the operator,except a finger on the trigger ,and i wouldve removed that variable if i could.
no flak intended...do you know how to find an original mount that is mounted on the left and over the bolt?
Classic arms may well have the original scope mounts for the M91/30. I think they still have a couple of the Ex-Snipers left.
I scoped my M91/30 with a mount from Advanced Technologies. I had it installed by a competent gunsmith and have not had anything loosen up at all.
Midway USA has them, and I believe Cheaper Than Dirt has them also.
There are also black synthetic Monte Carl stocks for the nagants. I had a M91/30 in one for a while, but didn't like it.
100 yards off of bags. Mil surp ammo and first time I shot this M44. Just under 2".
Of course I'm sure it'd be a tighter group with a nice 3-9x40 scope on it..:34:
Oh, and I paid $66 for that gun, shipped, from Southern Ohio Gun.
There are replica mounts out there
Even a lot of "snipers" sold with original-type scopes have the replica mounts. I haven't gone looking because I only have one scoped Mosin (scout setup on a 91/30), but I don't think they're hard to find. You might start with makarov.com.
I'm a firm believer in scout mounts on the Mosins. Aside from not having to modify the rifle and acquiring the target faster, I can also use stripper clips instead of thumbing them in one at a time.

I've only been a member here for about a month and thiers a lot of threads and posts about the Mosin Nagant.
You all have got me to wanting one, where are you buying them ? And what I've learned here at G&G there not exspensive to buy.
What source would you reccomend me going to on the net,
do any of you deer hunt with them ?
Are there any good one's left to buy ?
Fear not. There are still quite a few out there for $79.95 to $99.95. Besides Big 5 Stores, here are afew on-line stores. It helps to have an 03-FFL (Collector of Curios and Relics License) from the BATFT. If not then you can usually ask a local dealer to bring them in for you for a nominal charge.
Here are a few on-line dealers:
