Default "Rock Solid Industries" Nagant Scope Mount



Advertise Here

http://www.rocksolidind.com/mosin-nagant.html

Has anyone out there ever used one of these on a Nagant rifle?
With it's three hole design, it looks pretty rock solid.

I'm thinking of installing one of these to my Finn. M39 with a Redfield 2-7 X 33mm scope.

Please include photos if you have them.

Thank you,
Tim

I have attached on for a friend and it was a quality mount. My problem is when you do that then turn down your bolt and then maybe refinish your gun it now cost more then a Remington 700 or a savage 110 or similar. I think the way they are is great for a scoped rifle Ill go with one that is new with the ease of getting reloading components for and are in better shape. They are tanks use them as such and you wont be disappointed.

Agreed with Rascals but:

I do it for the love of it and prefer Mosin Nagants over a used Remington/Savage.

I have to do something as a project in the winter months while in Colorado. Refinish should only cost you about $12.70 and your time. $55.00 or so for the bolt. Once I kick the bucket all my guns get handed down to my son who helped me during my winter projects. Time and money well spent.

Rascals thanks, but I'm with tobkis.
I'm building this M39 as a tribute to my Grandpa Ranta. He came to the U.S. from Finland as a teenager around 1910, on his own, on the boat.
He was an avid hunter, and an incredible target shooting marksman.
If my Grandpa would have gotten his hands on a Finn. M39 during his shooting days, he would have built a block similar to the "Rock Solid" system, installed optics, bent the bolt handle, and developed a hand load to turn the gun into a tack driver.
I'm just trying to follow in Grandpa's footsteps.
Thanks for the input guys!

It's a pleasure not being chastised for wanting to turn a millsurp into a target rifle, like you get in all of the "collector's" forums.

Thanks again,
Tim

I understand the purist collector, and if that's your thing, cool.
But these are military weapons, and I don't see anything wrong with personalizing them, to squeeze out all the potential they have.

except when they get rare, then it hard to justify, but of coarse there yours. It's just seeing sporterized 1903's when in origanal shape are worth more the a good 700 seems wrong to me.

Nothing like that, this is an M39, worth $350 tops. I know that's a lot more than a $100 91/30, but I wnated to start my project with a nice solid rifle, with a prestine bore. And since I'm keeping the original stock, I like the Finnish M39 stock much better than the other Nagant stocks.

Sorry, it has to be Finnish, and it has to be an M39!

After taking a good long look at my Finnish M39, I've decided to semi-sporterize a Russian 91/31.

Yes, it's a ATI stock, I like it. Mine was an easy drop in. Seems to hold up fine and seems to to shoot well, no problems with it.

What is it about those M-39s that just grab ya??? I'd love to have better sights on mine, but can't bring myself to alter it. Is there anything out there that mounts a scope on a straight military model without altering the rifle?
