aperture rear target sight for Finn M28

Postby rjmt » Fri Nov 25, 2016 2:31 pm

has anyone mounted a target style Aperture rear sight on a Mosin?

most Finn M28/76 had them, but looking for a modern production style.
Unless someone has a vintage Finn M28/76 sight they want to get rid of.
I'm looking for one for my Finn M28 project

Have you seen the ones that replace the factory ones? They are really nice.

in my research, several vendors have aperture rear sights for the Finn M39 and M28/30. Unfortunately the M28 has a different rear sight base. According to the folks at Mojo sights, their sight fits the original Russian M91 rear sight, but not the Finn M91
According to 7.62x54r.net, the Finn M91 has a "modified" Russian rear sight, but the M28 uses an actual Russian M91 rear sight

has anyone found an aperture rear sight that they know works on the Finn M28 with it's Russian M91 rear sight base
