This is my second one with a Mosin, it does the job quite well. If you haven't shot yours yet you may find it to shoot a bit high.

finally got a name set up on this. i shot a few rounds the other day and i think it was shooting to the right but i'm going to go out shooting again in 2 days to test again. I was in very unideal conditions, target wasn't staying mounted and it was really windy. i'm hoping the mosin works out for me. i haven't been hunting in 5 years so i'm pretty jacked to go back out.

I get more of a rush taking a deer with one of these "old war guns" than I do with some modern rifle with a high powered scope. Have you cleaned the cosmoline out from your Mosin yet?

Yes i did clean it out and i feel exactly the same way. I'm partially mad i got rid of my 308 cuz the rounds r easier to find than for my mosin, Fleet Farm is the only local place that has them, but at the same time the mosin just has my feel to it. Its just a gun that's been through hell and i feel like i know will work. I'll obviously take good care of it but i dont want to have to baby a gun either to where i feel like i can't shoot it ever and thats how most hunting rifles make me feel.

Using your old war-horses

It is great that you are getting out and hunting. I personally prefer knowing that I can kill cleanly any Deer that I get a chance at. The rifles that I carry are very accurate and are dialed in with their scope. If I have to slip a bullet into an opening, and I miss it won't be because of the rifle. I to love to shoot the old war-horses, but I will stay with the modern ones when it comes to hunting.

for clarification, i have a 1943 mosin nagant with the original stock, so which mount would i want for a scope. you posted 2 and i got a bit confused as you mentioned 3/8ths dovetail on the first one but said the second one would be suitable for the military stock.

Hi there I just stumbled on this site today....I actually just put a UTG tri-mount that replaces the rear leaf sight and mounted an ncstar 2-7x32 pistol scope. I just bore sighted it and all I have to do is fine tune it. So far I am liking this setup.

If you have the original stock you will want the offset mount that I posted because the other one will be to long and your top hand guard will get in the way. Just take of your top handgaurd, tap out the 2 pins in the rear sight, slide the rear sight towards the muzzle off its dovetail, install the offset mount on the dovetail and put your top handguard back on again. I used the two pins to my advantage to hold the mount very solid....I put the rear pin behind the mount and I filed a groove in the mount to slide the front pin through it. Then you will of course need a handgun scope to use in the mount. Hope that helps.

That tri-mount is too "tacticool" for my taste, especially on a Mosin Nagant.

It doesn't look that bad....I took off the side mounts...those are no good...now it just looks like a regular mount.
