    A mosin nagant m44 carbine doesn't have a scope (unless bubba put one on) but it does have a fold out bayonet and kicks like a mule.

    There are two way to mount a scope on a Mosin Nagant that I know of:

    1. Buy a mount that fits into the ears of the rear sight and mount a long eye relief scope to it.

    2. Buy a kit that drills the receiver and mounts a weaver type base and mount a regular eye relief scope. This also requires a turned down bolt so that the bolt will clear the scope. There are kits for this modification as well. or if you are really good with a TIG welder you could probably modify the scope yourself.....but be careful not to get the bolt so hot that the temper of the metal is changed.

    I did number 2 and it works well. Didn't know about number 1, wish I had used the long eye relief scope so as not to have made a permanent change to the rifle.

    There may be other ways as well.

    Start here and look around for a while. Just a little browsing will save you a lot of time waiting for responses to your posts.

    Check on eBay, AuctionArms, and GunBroker. Try typing in "LER" or "EER" (extended eye relief) as a keyword.

    To find a mount that replaces the rear sight (which is a temporary change easily converted back, so doesn't destroy collector value), it's been discussed here on THR extensively, so you can track it down using the Search engine.

    FYI I don't think you can get onto the forum without registering. Darrell's email is:

    m39scout@bellsouth.net

    The K-31, 91/30 and M-38 mounts are in stock. He's sold out of the M-39 mounts but will be making more.

    Keep in mind this is just a side business for him. Each mount is custom made from high-grade aluminum. I've only had one problem mounting his rig, due to an unusual hybrid sight on one of my Finns. The M-39 mounts in particular are rock hard and require no bolstering.

    Cosmoline, the wood on that k31 looks killer!!! Was that just a clean up job or did you do any refinishing? If mine turns out half that good I'll be very happy indeed.

    That's not mine, sadly. It's one of the examples of Darrell's mounts.
