Scope Mount

Postby djfred » Tue Sep 23, 2014 12:41 am

Hey,
i am looking for a decent scope mount, nothing too expensive.
Last week for the first time took the mosin out, shot a few rounds
and noticed the scope on the original mount moved forward and the scope itself is a bit to far.
I want a mount that i can bring the scope a bit close
where i can clearly see thru it.

hope this make sense.

Get one of these. It comes with the scope and the bolt handle. Plus you gun will be worth more after you put this one. Any of the other cheap gun scope mounts will make you gun worth less $ or end up coating more because you still have to buy a bent bolt and scope.

Hey Fred:
I would not look at those ebay options. The longer one is for scout mount only and it tends to teeter totter your optics. The fist one is a bit short and will limit your scope choices.

Ben idea is an option but if you want a better setup Rock Solid has the their Picatinny mount for 110.00 BUT you can add a bent bolt body in the "Make IT A COMBO" feature in their store you'll get both for 182.00. That gives you another bolt body, a scope mount that is truly stable and since you have a scope and rings you should be good to go.

Rock Solid Hex Mount

They also make a round receiver mount as well.

mounting a scope should be thought out, as I see you are doing. there a few good or right ways in doing a scope mount.
Rocksolid or Jmeck ..........are the few

I opted to install the Jmeck because it gave me the option not to drill and still have a solid mount. I wanted the scope to be, within reason, close to my eye and not way up the rifle.
I am by no means being negative to Rocksolid's mount and will say they(Rick) have GREAT products as does Jmeck. (being just up the street from me). I am in the process of a Brass Stacker scope mount for my CZ 23 mauser. Can't see the iron sites in poor lite anymore.
anyways, hope I am of some help or more confusion :)

I believe there is a good pic http://i635.photobucket.com/albums/uu72 ... f3a1fe.jpg of a Jmeck steel setup.

Your confusing with the Firefield scopes that go for 150$. Yes they are junk and are in no way the same scope. They have plastic turrets and cast steel parts.

The one I recommended is made in Ukraine in the very same factory that the original WW2 scopes were made. Accounts I think is Chines made but they are very good quality. I have one and its better then my Leopold.

I should qualify my answer the rail type on ebay are typically useless. That being said the machining on this looks pretty rough, might look right at home on a 1943 or 44 sniper. But for just a little more you could buy a Mosin Nagant Sniper from Classic.

I think rough machining might actually be a hair smoother than that one Mark. :roll: :lol: that one is pretty rough.

The scope that i have is this
Leapers UTG 6-24X50
http://www.opticsplanet.com/leapers-utg ... rings.html

The Scope itself is good, very clear.

Going with one of the original scopes PU that would look nice, but i wanted something that can get a longer view.

That Jmeck one looks really good.
