Do you shoot one eye closed one eye open? You will be amazed with how well you can shoot both eyes open. Your mind sees what your concentrating on. Even with the other eye open you don't see what its seeing. Also your not swkinting, close one eye and see if your other eye starts to close. I bet you'll see if you look in the mirror. I have had a professional shooter teach me this and it works well.

As always I'm amazed at what talented folks can do with firearms. I really like what you've done with the old girl.

Just so everyone knows, I'm the guy that sold DevilDog the barreled action for this project. I have a few left and about a dozen complete rifles left for sale; however, this isn't a sales pitch. I've sold these to others who are all equally amazed at what these can do. They are NOT your typical Mosin- the balance is great and the triggers cannot be compared to a standard Mosin in any way, shape, or form.

Most of the complete rifles I have left have the scope base mounted to them. There is a gentleman who is currently making adapters for this dovetail base that sport a Picatinny rail and upon which can be mounted any 1" scope and rings as are typically found here in the US. If not for this adapter, the base would only work with the Finn scope mount and scope combination, and no other. Check it out here-

Be sure to read the whole description as there is much to learn.

For full disclosure, most of my remaining complete rifles have cracks in the stocks (wrist area) that are repairable. Or, you can go the route that DevilDog did and buy a beautiful aftermarket stock and with a few minor adjustments have modern furniture for your queen.

Regards,
Eric

Thx

For those who are interested, Preachere is the a great seller, I bout 3 WZ-48 Mosin trainers from him a while back and they are still one of my favorites to shoot. Quick shipping, very quick to fix a human error, great communication. Buy with confidence!

Yes, I bought with complete confidence. He was genuinely concerned about any issues I had and maintained great communication. He has some great pieces.

By the way, I made the stock ;)

Final Report: BORE SLUGGING

It was tearing the family apart. The brothers M28-30 and M39 sat there looking at the young M28-76 whelp wondering 'Who was the father?'. It had both their sights, but that snub nose was all M28. However, Little Finnsty's bore seemed large, like Mr. M39. Who would take little that poor orphan under his wing...

There was only one way to find out...DO THE TEST!

Well, the lab results are in, Mr. Springer, the results please:

.3082...M28-30, You ARE the father :lol: :lol:

I wish I had a web site up and running, but the only one out there is a stalled "work in progress" that looks horrible.

I have 5 barreled receivers left, two with bolts and triggers, three without. All have had the scope base removed and there are holes drilled and tapped into the top of the receiver and old solder present. Price would be $275 shipped for the ones with bolts and triggers and $200 shipped for those without.

I have about a dozen complete rifles left. Almost all of them have the scope base present but all of them have cracks in the wrist area. These cracks are easily repairable and I'm working on them as I go- so far I've only repaired the extra stocks I have, not the ones for the complete rifles yet, they will be next. Cost of one of these unrepaired complete rifles is $500 shipped.

And guys, I really didn't know I had any past customers here when I joined, just DevilDog. You have no idea how much your kind words mean to me. It has always been my top priority to take care of my customers, many of whom have since become my friends.

Regards,
Eric

I just discovered this post. I recently acquired a M28 and am looking for an M28-76 diopter sight, just the rear.
an alternative is a modern diopter sight that will fit the Mosin.

any feedback would be appreciated.
