I'm wanting to build a 91/30 sniper replica and was looking at a couple of replica scopes. Anyone know if these are any good? I know they're probably made in China, so quality is questionable. Also, are the replicas like the originals where the adjustment knobs move the crosshairs rather than the field of view?

I have a post war scope on my sniper it works fine. The reticule does move in the field of view like the wartime scope. I wouldent call it a repro though as it feels as if it was made for military use. It is allot of fun too, I did a little trigger work on the gun too and now I can hole quarters at 50 yards. not bad for a surplus rifle.

My repro scope was doing fine for a while, but the reticule starts to rotate when I fire now. That's what I get for getting a $200 scope/mount combo on ebay.

The majority of the repros are made at the original factory, on the original equipment. One major improvement they made was the glass quality. beware of the junk with the alloy mount, the mount WILL break!
The reticule does move inside the view, but once mounted, there is a process to center everything. The Mosin was made for farmer peasants to operate and maintain, the PU scope and mount was made the same way. The mount provides a bunch of leeway for rifle variations and installer screw ups too.

Good info thanks. I had run across that site before, but wasn't sure about the scope quality. Good to get a recommendation.

These guys sell a quality repro that's made in the same factory that was making PU scopes 60 years ago.
