Finally found the scope I wanted for this project, a Bushnell 10X /40mm Mil Dot scope. Due to the mounting distance for the rings and eye relief, was difficult to find a modern scope that would work with this set up.
spaced the receiver
floated the barrel
Finn 2 stage trigger
Finn sling hangers
Finn extractor claw
lightened firing pin spring (lightened by 3 coils)
cycled the bolt 1000 times with JB bore polishing compound
Mosins sniper bent bolt by Max Sheppard
shoots MOA with PPU 7.62R match ammo at 100 yds
would like to work up long range ballistics for this Mil Dot scope, when I find a range, just shooting 100 yds on my own property now

He won't let me touch it - not even to put in a Finn trigger or shim the barrel - it's such a beautiful rifle, he just wants it kept original.

you do know that is not correct brass tip handguard for a M91-30.?? M91-30 did not have aluminum rivets.

Kermit, I just checked with another Mosin collector and he tells me these aluminum rivit brass end handguard were from the Romanian armory rebuild 91/30s
now I find that even more unique
a Romanian brass handguard
Finn trigger
Finn extractor
Finn sling hangers
Smith Sight
on a Russian Hex reciever 91/30, with a pre-war stock
I have Mosin M44 carbine leather/canvas slings with Finn steel sling hangers on all my Mosins
are they period authentic - no
in the end, it's just my rifle, not a collectors grade Mosin 91/30 - if such a thing even exist
I hope you enjoy the photos
