    I have a 7,62x54 Russian rifle that I got for nothing. I've removed the bayonet and had it's mount machined off. I've also put it in a composite stock. Really like the way it's turned out and being able to retain the iron sights, however, I would also like to mount a scope on it.

    Can anyone point me in the right direction with respect to a place where I can by the parts needed to make this modification?

    PS: Yes, it is a Mosin-Nagant Russian rifle.

    Google "Mosin-Nagant scope mount" as I'm assuming that is what you have.

    It might help if you say what kind of rifle you're trying to modify. I'm assuming its a nagant, but there's more than one type of rifle that fires that caliber...

    Darrell makes a dandy scout scope mount. I have one on my M39 Mosin Nagant and it will shoot under 1 inch at 100 yards with Privi ammo....chris3

    Man I hope you looked close before doing that. My french made, 1895 MN came like that and it took me forever to find a rear sight that would work. I was able to trade a fellow THR member the scope mount and stock for a "close enough" rear site and stock.

    MN's are a dime a dozen, but there are some rare rifles out there still.

    If you want a solid mount, you'll probably need to drill and tap it and modify the bolt. So I would look for that type of mount. If your rifle shoots pretty well it might be worth doing. If it doesn't shoot well, then it may not be worth it. If you are not sure how it's shooting, maybe you can't use open sights well , there is often someone around who can. It's quite possible to shoot one inch groups and smaller with open sights. There are a few Mosin Nagants that will do that. For the what it's worth department.

    MCDONL - Thanks for the heads up. I still have the stock, of course, and the rear adjustable sight mechanism is still in place on the rifle as is the forward sight. What I want to do is see if a scope can be installed without compromising the iron sights so they can still be used if the situation warrants.

    I would suggest looking up the jmeck scope mount. I made a YouTube video of the installation process and the mount has held true for over a year now.
