    you guys wont believe this....well you might. i was just messing around because my new(to me) mosin was not shooting accurately and i grabed the part that holds the bayonet on(where the screw is) and tried moving it with my hand and i can wiggle it up and down which moves my front sight about 1/8" i think if move move it all the way to the left my sights would be on point but how can i get it locked in place?

    the only think i can think of is to put the sight all the way to the left where i think it should be, and shoot it and if it hit where i aim put some solder on it.....do you guys think it will work?

    Patience grasshopper!
    So you're telling us that your bayonet bracket is moving on the barrel of your M44?
    If that's the case, then you need to check that the 2 drive pins that secure it, is not missing or damaged. Perhaps someone has messed with it. I know that the bracket is generally press fit to the barrel and not easily moved. The pins are not normally easy to see right off either.

    I think loctite would fix this. That would be the first thing I would try, it's totally reversible.
