    Mosin Nagant reproduction Sniper 91/30

    I was in Florida last week and picked up a Mosin Nagant 91/30 that had been turned into a sniper. I had been looking at them on the SOG (Southern Ohio Gun) website, but felt being able to hug squeeze and love it (and not having to clean cosmolineicon off it) made it a better buy, plus the price was actually less than their "dealer" price.
    It is a 1939 dated Tula (?)



    I haven't gotten to the range yet, but I noticed that the scope crosshairs are canted to about 9 oclock 4 oclock so you would hold the rifle at an angle if you had the cross hairs level.
    I sighted on a distant flower with both the iron sights and the scope and it appears that if I sight first with iron sights and then without moving look through the scope the scope is off (when the rifle is level) but if I sight the scope with the horizontal cross hair level and the rifle angled when I look through the iron sights they are on the flower.

    Could this have been done by a previous owner to put the bullets on target?

    the reproduction snipers are kind of a pain. sometimes they're dead on, other times the scope mount needs to be shimmed our ground to get the crosshairs to be centered correctly.

    move the turrets until the reticule is in the center of the sight picture. do what this site says from there

    What a great article, when I get home from work I am going to print it out. It answers my question right to a T, now I can't wait to get to the range this weekend!
