    I just received a NCstar scout rail mount for a Mosin nagant. It cost me about $12 total, so I thought I'd give it a try. I have a couple of 91/30s that are decent shooters, but I don't want to dink with the iron sights to make them hit the point of aim- they shoot way high, also my eyesight isn't getting any younger and a scout setup is a lot cheaper than Lasik. Has anyone used one of these or have any advice on using them? Do they hold their zero well?

    What about scopes? Has anyone tried a NCstar scout scope? I'm really leery of buying one because they are so 'inexpensive.' My alternative would be to spend 2x as much and get a red dot scope which would be more versatile but I want to keep the costs of scoping a mosin nagant low (ie, I'm not going to spend severla hundred $$s on a Leupold scout scope).

    ANy suggestions?

    I made a "Scout" from an M38, used a Tasco pistol scope. It ain't a "tack-driver", but it's fun.

    The 4x scopes at 100 yards don't really do it for my tired old eyes. You can see the 6-18x50 scope I put on my 91/30 which works really well and is a ton of fun to shoot. My Son's M44 is on the top in the picture below and he tries to keep up with the iron sights, but is luck to hit the paper. My scope is a Wallyworld Bushnell that came in around 125 bucks. Thanks to this board, when the first one lost half of the cross hair, someone suggested taking it back to Wally's which I did this morning. Sure enough, I let the Sales gal looked through the tube, and she pulled another one off the shelf and said "There-ya-go". Bushnell would have taken the broken one back, but I prolly would have had to wait for several weeks.


    Once again great advice from this board...
