View Full Version : Need Advice & Help on my Mosin 91/30 (Mount+Scope)

04-06-2010, 5:14 PM
I have & had plenty of Mosin Nagants but I never have put a scope on one. I know what to do and how to dissassemble the gun completly thats notthe prob. The problem is that I dont know what type of scope? what mount / rail ? or what is the mount / rails measurments that i should get? I know I gotta grab a Long eye relief but is there a lengthy rail where it can almost have it reaching the chamber? Im going to be using a bent bolt body so it wont bother anything. I'd love to see some examples from our calgunners on what they've done to their Mosins. And if you dont mind can you show me some websites that will help me order the parts. Thank you for viewing and support:cheers2:

Check out these threads.

I like my setup and it was cheap and has held up well. No bent bolt required either if you don't want it.

Opticsplanet.com is where I got my stuff from.

dose any one know a muzzle break that will fit a Russian Mosin Nagant 91 30? and what type of thread is required for it to fit right.

Scope mounts = ATI and Rocksolid for normal scopes but needs to be tapped.

For long eye relief, you have two/three choices. You can get the NC star one, which falls apart, believe me I've tried both the long rail and short rail versions for the 91/30 and m44. The longs tend to fit better but the screws they attach with will either loose it's threading or just back out even with Perm. Loc-tight. Darrel's scope mount is pretty solid, but I think he only makes it for M39s but I could be wrong. There is also a SKS style mount that works with the front sight. You can try that too if you like.

Personally, I had bad a bad experience with most of those mounts (all but sks). They either are hard to center (darrels) or just come off. I just took off the damn front site and used the exposed dove tails. Problem with that though is the rings tend to slide forward (if anyone has a better solution to this let me know) so I had to use one of the retention pins as a stop for the scope rings. Now it's rock solid and won't slide anywhere.
Also a note, the NC star long eye relief scopes don't hold zero. I hate that. So just to let you know, it'll take a couple or few rounds every session to rezero the rifle. (more if you suck at zeroing)

As for the muzzle break, you can use most of the 7.62 breaks for the ak I believe. The threading depends on the muzzle break you choose.

Darrel makes scout mounts that will fit the 91/30, M38, M39, M44 and the M91/59. Not sure about the 01. I have at least one of each and they have all held up well (as have the cheap as hell NCstart scopes I put on them, as long as you stick to fixed power.)

He makes one for the Swiss K31 as well. He has a forum on milsurpshooter.net.

Don't mention drilling anything on that board, though, as it is a collector board.

Try these websites....I mounted a scout scope on mine...very easy to do by punching out the pin that holds the leaf spring of the front sight. You have to buy the mount that you can get from many milsurp websites. Combathunting.com has packages for the mosin to mount scopes on without drilling and tapping. good luck. I'll try and take pictures of mine and post later.

I just mounted a scope/ rail system on my mosin 91 30, I used a "NcSTAR SCOPE MOUNT" that i found on ebay. the item number of the mount is #:MM44/91. it came with a red dot sight as well it was a good deal. you will now be able to mount a scope on your mosin without sending your baby away to your local gunsmith. installation is very simple it's very DIY.

If it comes loose and fails, please update. Maybe yours might work out. I'll keep my fingers crossed.
