    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.

    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'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.

    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!!

    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.

    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 have only whitnessed a very few (one) mosin nagant that was not very accurate.
    that was a "three line" chinese copy of a m-44 that had a bore like a sewerpipe.
    usually mosins are very accurate
    my M91 finn is lazer accurate,... when I am....

    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:
