I'd put an order in for a Schmidt & Bender Fixed Power 6x42 Hunting scope. I find it truly add's value to the rifle. Any UTG mount will work.

Today's first grouping after figuring out the hold-over. Not bad for irons and some pretty strong winds comrades!

My Big 5 Mosin is extremely accurate. I will not do anything to mine.
For you, I suggest getting on the internet to order a couple cans of ammo from Aim Surplus. You will not regret it. Get the wood crate of two cans.
Also, whatever you do; don't by an aftermarket stock, or a scout mount scope. They just don't work right. People do not need that garbage. It's only cosmetic.

Really? If I take it out and can improve on the accuracy a bit more I was considering turning it into a cheapo deer hunting rifle. I'm sure I could do better than what was posted as those were shots 15-20 I've ever taken on it and in less than ideal conditions.

The grip angle is pretty bad on the original stock, so the stock would likely be the first thing I replace.

Surplus ammo, according to my daughters boyfriend (he now owns 2), has indicated the ammo can be the corrosive type so you should clean the barrel and action after every outing with the rifle.
We initially started with some bagged/boxed surplus (PPU) and at 100 yards, he was hitting the gong every shot on bench, and 80% off hand. Depending upon the cartridge, we noticed after about 50 rounds one round punched right through, and another nearly went all the way through (big dome behind the gong).

I just bough us 880 rounds in the crate... should last us a couple of years!

Palmetto state armory often has surplus and sometimes you can hit there free shipping promo, which makes for some of the cheapest 7.62x54r on the webs.

Check out the big 3:
7.62x54r.net
russian-mosin-nagant.com
Mosinnagant.net

For endless details.

Welcome to the club. Beware, these rifles have a way of multiplying. The big5 91/30 is the gateway Mosin. Next you'll want the M44, then the M38, you won't be able to pass up that 91/58 you see at the gun show, then of course the Finns.

Just kidding (kinda). Congrats on your new rifle! I hope you love it as much as we do. I have as much fun with these greasy old dogs as I do with any of my guns.

Dont get him started on asking what is a Finn Mosin.

Thanks, it was a lot of fun. Just waiting on my surplus ammo to come in so I can take some friends out to shoot her. I'm guessing part of the addiction is how each time you get a new one you get faster at prepping them for the range, and better at identifying good ones. Then of course you are going to have ones you want to make sporters, and those you want to keep original.

It had been a while since I walked up to a target and was so pleased with my shooting. Looking forward to practicing some more and improving. My yellow shooting glasses were a big help with the black irons (started the day with my shades on).

"What's a Finn Mosin?" you ask!
