    Would mounting a scope mount on the stock of a rifle be a worthless, foolish endeavor, or could it produce a mildly accurate rifle with full-powered cartridges? Would bedding the stock be a good idea for such a mount? opinions? Thoughts?

    Where would you put the scope on the stock? Not trying to knock the idea, but it also may not be the best idea to bolt something designed to improve accuracy to the softest material on the entire gun.

    Sounds like a Bad Idea and doesn't really make any sense to do so.

    Any reason why the scope couldn't be mounted on the receiver? Why are you looking for "mildly accurate with full power cartridges"? There are plenty of "very accurate" rifles with "full power cartridges".

    I've never done it, but I would bet it would have an annoying habit of being close on some shots and then wild the next. I'm saying this, because on guns with scopes in the past, mounted on recievers, if something was even a little loose, that was the result.

    yeah, I figured that would be the situation. :( thanks. The reason is that i'm like a little girl when it comes to altering a receiver. I don't want to mess it up. But if that's the way it must be, so it shall be.

    Or buy a duplicate. One to butcher, one to cherish.

    mosin 91/30. here's a new idea, though. here's a mosin receiver, and a rem 700 dovetail mount. I tried out the angle with a scope and rubber bands. and it would be rather easy to zero in. thoughts?

    Rubber bands?

    It's not 91/30s are rare or expensive.....or like they don't make scope mounts for them.

    i did not attempt to mount a scope with ruber bands. It was to hold the scope in place while i looked through to estimat the general angle it would be at.:banghead:

    You should find a gunsmith you trust, and have him drill and tap your Mosin and mount the appropriate base. You wont be happy with the results if you try to guestimate and use the incorrect parts...

    If you dont want to modify anything, get a scout mount that replaces the rear sight; they require no permanent modifications to anything.

    Give this a read.
