Scope your Mosin while preserving its historic integrity.
***PLEASE READ SPECS & FITMENT NOTES BEFORE PURCHASING***
There is no need for bent bolt handle with this mount.
Why consider a “Scout” type setup for your rifle?
A LER (Long Eye Relief) optic, or Scout Scope, mounted forward of the receiver provides a substantial uninterrupted overall field of view. This unconfined environment results in greater situational awareness allowing for fast target acquisition and shots taken with both eyes open. This configuration has additional advantages for bolt action MilSurp (military surplus) rifle platforms as it does not interfere with spent casing ejection, straight bolt handles or stripper clip use.
Allows for mounting of Scout Scope or other long eye relief optics on your milsurp Mosin Nagant without the need to drill & tap receiver or make any permanent modifications to the firearm. It is designed to fit over rear sight block in order to allow for continued use of the original fixed/iron sights up to 100 meters. Mount and MIL-STD 1913 Picatinny 8″ rail are rigid steel construction with Black Oxide finish. 100% Lifetime Warranty!
M44, M38, T53 and M53
This Mount utilizes the barrel pin hole and the pivot pin hole in the rear sight block. The Mount will accommodate a front to back (horizontal, parallel to bore axis) pin center distance of 1.56″ (39.6mm) to 1.79″ (45.4mm) and allows for an up and down (vertical, perpendicular to bore axis) pin center distance of .18″ (4.6mm) to .41″ (10.3mm). The Mount is designed to fit over rear sight blocks that measure between .750″ (19.05mm) and .787″ (20.00mm) wide. The total weight including hardware is 5.4 oz. We have made every reasonable effort to ensure that this product will fit the majority of M38, M44 & T53’s. However, due to the large number of these firearms produced over many years around the world, it is impossible for us to allow for all manufacturing variation. Bolts are Grade 12.9 medium carbon Q&T alloy steel hardened to Rc 38-44 and have a tensile strength of 177000 psi. Tightening torque is 1.67 ft lbs. Proper tightening of all hardware should result in no movement of the mount during normal firing recoil. If for any reason our Mount does not work with your specific variant it can be returned (undamaged) for a full refund.
INCLUDED: All necessary hardware, hex wrench, drill (provided to clean out or straighten existing pin holes), punch (light duty punch not designed for difficult to remove pins such as those soldered) and complete installation instructions.
MOUNT DOES NOT INCLUDE SCOPE & RINGS!
This mount will NOT work for a M91/30 or M91/59! See Model MN9130SSM for a M9130, M9159.
The pin hole in the rear sight block is often located inconsistently as a result of the original manufacturing process. The pin hole, relative to the pivot pin, is frequently not parallel and may be out of alignment or skewed. The Mount can only accommodate so much of this misalignment. You should measure the center distances from barrel pin to pivot pin on both sides and check those with the dimensions listed in the SPECIFICATIONS to ensure that the mount will fit properly. A 3mm drill is provided and can be used to clean out and straighten (to some degree) without enlarging the barrel pin hole once the pin is removed. The barrel pin hole and pivot pin hole in the rear sight block are generally .118″ (3.0mm) in diameter and the supplied 3mm bolts have a nominal OD of .115″ (2.92mm). This tight fit along with the use of an appropriate liquid thread locker for the screws and nuts, as well as proper tightening of the same should result in no movement of the Mount during normal firing recoil.
A MAPP (Methyl Acetylene Propadience Propane) gas torch and heavy duty punch may be required to remove existing pins from the rear sight block if they are soldered in place. You can usually find these items at your local hardware or plumbers supply. The application of heat, if done properly, will not cause damage. Keep in mind that you only need to reach the melting point of the solder and that this same temperature was achieved during original construction without adverse effects. Procedure provided in supplied instructions.
Any scope or mount that suffers an impact should not be trusted to be accurate. If you feel your mount has been compromised you can still use your original open iron sights. Design subject to change without prior notice. Caution! Improper installation or use may result in damage to property, severe injury, or loss of life. If for any reason this product does not function properly, discontinue use immediately. Always practice proper SAFETY and ensure an UNLOADED condition before beginning installation.
