All the Mosin forums are "preservation ONLY" and wont discuss this issue.


Hell, even the guy at Big5 will tell you "They made so many of these they wont become valuable".

Any tried and true scope mounts that will hold zero after lots of rounds?

You could buy a Mosin-Nagant M44 for $50 with a C&R FFL just 8 years ago. Now they are $200.

The ATI two screw drill and tap front receiver ring mount is low cost and actually excellent for its intended purpose, the bolt handle they sell is also ok but requires careful fitting/attachment (screw or weld).

How they are fitted/mounted by a gunsmith or machinist makes a big difference in performance.

What modern center adjust scope you choose is up to you. I would stay away from any mount that clamps on receiver or fits in rear sight base as they dont hold zero well with the recoil of the 7.62x54R cartridge.

This is true with most of the no drill/no tap mounts, but not all. Darrell's mounts WILL NOT LOSE ZERO. I've had 2 M9's, 2 M44's, and 1 M38 with these mounts, and never had one lose zero. My B barrell M39 has had that mount on it for 10 years now, with THOUSANDS of rounds (commercial and surplus) downrange. The only time I re-dope the rifle is when i switch ammo for hunting. And if you have a 91/30, Darrell has them in stock again.
