Congrats on the doe! She should be great eating!
That's why I like using it. :yes: I really wanted to take one with my Great Uncles (whom has passed away about 10 years ago) Winchester 94 30-30. I took it out Thursday and Friday and since I didn't even see a doe I figured bringing this rifle may change my luck, and it did..lolI've never seen that kind of rifle/scope before but it has done the job well.
What kind of scope is that? And how did you mount it? Have a Mosin-Nagant at home with original 'woodwork' stock and open sites - not that it hasn't stopped me from bagging a deer or two with it. :wink:Nice job buddy. I've never seen that kind of rifle/scope before but it has done the job well.
Which model and year do you have? Mine is a 1943. To mount it the way I did it has to be a 91/30. There is a 3/8" dovetail under the rear sight, which is the same as whats on .22's and airguns. I removed the rear sight and put on the 1 piece mount. The scope is a Simmons Prohunter 4x32mm handgun scope. Since this picture was taken I have filed out a small notch on both sides of the mount so I can slide the front pin from the rear sight in it so there is no way the mount can slide forward. I have the rear sight pin installed behind the mount so it cannot slide rearwards.What kind of scope is that? And how did you mount it?

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.congrats. I sold my 308 about 2 years ago because i hadn't been hunting but decided i'd go out this year. Picked myself up a mosin nagant for $100 and i'm hoping to have some similar luck. good to know other people have done it though.
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.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.
That tri-mount is too "tacticool" for my taste, especially on a Mosin Nagant.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.
