Re: Mosin Nagant 1891/30 sniper scope mounting ??
Thanks for the offer of help but I found a sniper bolt at the local gun show last week end. I contacted Accumounts and he had a repro PE and the mount over the barrel for the HEX receiver. So I ordered it all from him.
My son-in-law has the repro PU setup on his round receivered 91/30 and has a loose (saved for another project 91/30) repro PE scope. I compared the two for appearance and optical quality and could tell no difference optically. I think the PE looks bettter on the gun in the over the barrel mount. It's kind of a opinion and not based on performance. I like the look of the over the barrel PE better so that's what I decided to do.
We shoot at a range that has metal targets all the way out to 500+ yds. We like to take our Military guns to shoot at those targets. The last time out it was Mosin Nagants. I could readily hit out to about 300 yds with open sights. He was hitting regularly at 500+ yds with his round receiver 91/30 with the Accumounts side mounted repro PU setup. I was impressed so much that I decided to scope my 91/30.
I await my PE setup from Accumounts at this moment. Thanks for the offer of help.
