    Collectors please keep in mind, it's a hunters rifle, and it already was not in collectors condition any more.

    Hope you can forgive me....

    :cool:

    There are excellent mounts available that use the original m/39 rear sight base for an anchor. Probably the best of these is made by Bad Ace in Canada. However, your rifle has had the original sight base removed. You would have to have a gunsmith drill and tap the receiver for a scope mount. There are several different scope mounts made for the Mosin Nagant, one of which copies the old Soviet PE/PEM sniper setup. The others mostly require drilling three holes - two on top of the hex receiver and one on the left side of the receiver near the stripper clip guide. They have a Weaver or Picatinny rail on top to mount the scope. I have to say that if I owned that rifle, I would not want to drill holes in it for a scope. It is quite beautiful the way it is.

    Here's the Finnish-made scope base on my m/39 sporter. I am sure this was made a very long time ago. It is soldered in place. Using something like this would prevent the use of the iron sights, unless the center channel was made much deeper by a machinist. In fact, it might be completely impossible because your rear sight is very low.

    (Note: I don't know how this post got screwed up the way it did, but I've now fixed it!)
