    Ive been pricing different rifles and I think I'd rather buy this $100 scope mount. Instead of paying $425 for a savage 270. When I already have a $75 good mosin. The round is big enough to take down deer and possibly bigger game?? Isnt the 7.62x54r called the 30.06 russian?

    I found this company Custom Scope Mounts for M91, M44, M38, & M39 Mosin Nagant Rifles | Advanced Rifle Parts
    They look like they make a good product.

    A scoped Moisin should be a darn good hunting rifle, and there are damned few bargains in today's world. That Russki rifle looks like one of the best. I have never even had my hands on one and are "rifle poor" but if I had one I would quickle replace that stock with one more pleasing to my eye, that issue stock is as ugly as a mud fence daubed with cow patties !

    If the Mosin is a good shooter I'd go for it. It would not be my first choice but it'll work for sure! :banger:

    You probably want to make sure it shoots good first ... the Russians aren't well known for building an accurate rifle the first time, nevermind how many times that gun has been re-arsenaled and banged around on the slow boat over.

    If it shoots inside a 3" circle, I'd call it good. If it's bigger than that, I'd look to have the crown re-cut, and look into accurizing it a bit.

    I have a 91/30 that's a good shooter. I mounted a LER 2x scope with the S&K mount kit. It's great. Not a lot of cash outlay for a good hunting rig. The Sellier & Bellot soft point (180 gr.) would work well on deer. Good luck.

    Mine has a really good stock and was well taken care of. I paid $75 for it. Really nice smooth bolt action and trigger adjustment rifling is really good. Ive only shot about 10 rounds through it. But, I havent done any target setup with yet but, tomorrow I will.
