Cary Grant: Gr8 job! Ive heard on several different occasions make sure you take it to
a gun smith! You made it look easy.
Thanks for the video.
B Plair: Great job, lots of good information. Thanks much.
TheMetalHeaD256: actually they switched to round receivers a bit earlier. i'm holding a 1937
low-wall round-reciever in my hands atm.
Relentlessv2: Was it easy to do?
20thcenturyfilmdocs: So...am I understanding you correctly that you did the drive and tap with a
vise grip and then a hand power drill? No drill press or anything fancy? If
so, I'm really thinking this might be a fun challenge...I just don't want
to pay a fortune for doing it and having to buy new equipment.
86taw: @Kicksmeintheshowers good review man very to the point and not corny. any
reason you choose to tig the handle on instead of mig it
Bobisawesome100: moe-zin na-g-ant... All of my eye twitches. Nice work though
froterons: I was just going to order a pre made bent bolt, can you put a PU scope on
just any mosin nagant?
Kicksmeintheshowers: Mine holds zero very well. I think you have to really check all the screws
and bolts when you fire the first 20 shots. Mine got loose at first then I
used locktight on every threaded fastener. It has been good since. I have
put about 600 rounds through it.
broofdogg: You can buy a mosin with its original scope, but they are like 500$
David Teixeira: Looks Great to Me!! Great Job!!
lwnmwrmn: Can you still use a stripper clip with this scope mounted?
David Mikhail: Hey this is a great video, but I had a couple questions. Could you use a
modern scope like a leupold 3-9x50 on that mount? Also most modern nagant
scope mounts tend to be drill and tap on the top of the receiver, which
design would you say has more integrity and ability to hold zero? Last
question, with the pu set up, can you still load the magazine with stripper
clips or does it hinder that ability? Thanks again for the video.
XxobscurexX777: How accurate is the scope and the Mosin Nagant itself? I would love to get
Kicksmeintheshowers: I put a level across the rear sights and a level on the side of the mount
so the mount was exactly 90 degrees from the top of the receiver. Hope that
pace1960: @Kicksmeintheshowers Aww...poor grapefruit :( I'm sure it's not "operator
error" but rather "crappy trigger syndrome"! I saw somewhere (googled) a
drop in Mosin trigger assembly for $100.....and then a trigger mod on
youtube that cost $5 to do! Same difference?? ...
Kicksmeintheshowers: @slimvdub They are quite similar aren't they?
mattsoutdoors: dang brother that looks sick!!! im definitely getting one of those for my
mosin next christmas!
BASSPLAYAAA: Can someone tell me why the scope looks a little different? I noticed that
the scope isn't a complete cylinder like the other pu scopes. It looks like
there's a magnifacation dial im not saying the scope is fake or anything, I
just want to know
Kicksmeintheshowers: @darksidepianist I do not think so. I have a 32 Tula with a hex receiver
and comparing them side by side I doubt it. Perhaps they make a mount for
the hex style?
Michael Bear: Good news Boys. Gunbroker guy offers bending/welding bolts for mosin for
slimvdub: Are you happy with the look of the svt-40 pu scope over the orginal style pu
Jon Carroll: The pins are there to keep the screws for sheering off due to heavy recoil.
I think I would install them, even is after the fact.
Loy Streitenberger: @jginsc Damn...nice job....maybe i'll send you my rifle and you can do
Kopar'RUS: you screwed up on the front screw? xD
Kicksmeintheshowers: @DEOXYS987 Measure the holes and order the mount that matches. They make
mounts specifically for ex sniper models.
Kicksmeintheshowers: I think it needs to be the 91' 30 model with a round receiver. They were
made with a hex receiver until 1938 I believe. To speed up production
during the war years 39'-45' they machined the receivers round. Check out
one of the Mosin Nagant web sites. Boatloads of information.
Nicholas Kaminski: Thanks for making the video, it really takes the intimidation out of this
project. One question though, what is the bolt made of so I can select my
welding wire? I was assuming stainless steel. Did you tig it? Thanks again.
TheMetalHeaD256: i believe it was 1936 when they began the round receivers. i have a '37
that is a low-wall round-reciever. also you can't just have a
round-reciever... make sure it's a high-wall. the mount needs to be flush
with the entire left side of the receiver to work, so low-walls can't mount
the PU scope. they can take a PE scope, though, i believe.
Swagman00: I almost went this route until I found out the total cost. Just look up the
cost of the scope. For the rear sight removal method: UTG high rise .22 LR
rings: 12 bucks. NCStar 2-7x32 pistol scope: 45 bucks. 30 minutes of rear
sight removal and replacement and badda-bang. 57 bucks total.
slimvdub: Yeah they just look diffrent at the eye piece end
Kjolsrud84: Is the 1943 model the first to have a scope mounted on it? I have a 1940
model and would like to mount an accuscope repro on mine. Is it possible?
Tikka Koski: @ps3man1011 probably just below 100$ but you will have to find someone who
will do it
Head Rot: hey good info/ I had to do the same thing to one of mine /my scope is a
original ww2pu came with old russian instruction manual and inspection
papers inspected in 43 hand written on it tucked in a pocket in canvas
cover .Kind of useless since it is all in russian-LOL but did almost exact
same thing to mine and have been using it for about 4 yrs and and works
very accurately"I guessed also,,,good video will probable help a lot of
people/Wavin at ya
gforce118118: if i may make a suggestion to make the drilling phase easier... level,
clamp mount and reciever together, drill one hole, unclamp, tap hole,
attach mount to reciever with this new threaded hole, re-level, clamp,
drill second hole, unclamp, tap second hole, etc. this is how machinist do
it... thumbs up?
DaveHProductions: Thanks heaps for uploading man, really appreciate it! Just got one these
rifles last year and I'd really like to mount a scope on it but until I saw
this vid I had no idea where to start. Cheers!
KKing1976: Did you drill the pin holes all the way through the receiver?
Michael M: Could you also level from the bottom of the receiver instead of the barrel?
On account of the barrel being tapered?
YouAdrian28: Nice video! Thank's!
tittomontanadelacruz: Nice video, I appreciate this since everyone seems to lean towards the
mounts that remove of block the rear sight. I'm currently prepping for a
similar project. I want a POSP scope on one of mine, If I end up doing it
myself I will make a video since so far this video is the only one I can
find that is useful. Well played sir!
bill dolan: Nice job, thanks!!
Brandon Camara: hey what kind of drill bits dix you use. this reciever is tough to drill so
i orded titanuim nitrate drill bits. should i have gotten the cobalt ones.
Manfred Diedrich: hey were and how much is a bolt like that?
greenspiraldragon: what was the aprox cost?
pace1960: @Kicksmeintheshowers Actually, the trick question is, "How was a scope
option" added to the Mosin, "in the field of battle"? "Round and HEX" is
just the front shape of the receiver. Think about how mobile Russian Armors
did their job in WW!!. (with probably a hand drill). Please double check
your 32 Tula hex and any "round" example. I'll bet you, "sniper scopes" can
be retrofitted on the fly, while "under fire". :(
mrjangles1: That's a very beautiful rifle you have there, sir.
shootload1911: whered you aquire the m-18 fuze wrench????
