Mounting a scope on to your Mosin Nagant may not always be as simple as installing one on to other types of commercial rifles. The Mosin Nagant was initially intended to be a soldier’s rifle for purely long range engagements where open sights would be used. These rifles were initially equipped with what is known as a bent bolt which is something that can still be discovered on many modern hunting rifles, unlike the regular Mosin Nagant (which is now known to utilize a straight bolt). The design of straight bolt was used on the Mosin Nagant’s to allow a soldier a relatively quick rate of fire. The only downside to this straight bolt is that it will not work with modern receiver mounted scopes.
To overcome this problematic straight bolt, as a shooter you have two options available to you. You can either manually bend the bolt handle or use what is known as a scout type scope mount.
Mosin Nagant Scope Mounts
Nevertheless, this is why any owner or enthusiast of the Mosin Nagant will be well aware that the Mosin Nagant rifle requires a high-quality scope in order to be a genuinely deadly piece of equipment and no manual bending or warping of the bolt should be necessary if you have yourself a suitable scope mount for your Mosin Nagant. As many shooters will know, scopes are a great way to engage targets with incredible accuracy that are of medium to far distance away. Even though you may have a top of the range Mosin Nagant and one of the latest and most expensive scopes on the market, it doesn’t honestly mean a thing if your scope isn’t securely mounted to your firearm. If you attach a poor quality scope mount onto your gun, you may be doing more harm than good. A poor scope mount may cause your scope to become unstable which can cause significant damage to your receiver. This is why we offer you only the best in premium quality Mosin Nagant scope mounts.

Nevertheless, it’s important to remember that before you go ahead and install any form of scope mount onto your Mosin Nagant firearm, you will first need to invest in some high-quality carbide drill bits. This is because the hardened steel that is found on these types of rifles is incredibly hard and robust. You may even discover that red Loctite or even Rocksett may be required to install the mounting screws, this is because the Mosin Nagant rifle generates a significant level of felt recoil.
