I just recently got a 1944 ex-sniper. I only bought the rifle because the guy didnt have a scope or scope mount for it. I do plan on getting a PU scope and mount for it soon. My question is, what is the diameter of the mounting rings on a PU scope mount? My plan is to put a PU scope mount on the rifle and then put a modern mil-dot scope on it. I am only going this route so i will have it ready to go for deer season. I will get a PU scope for it before the year is out, you better believe :). Just my budget isnt quite right at the moment. It will cost $400 for a 1944 PU scope and mount, and it will cost $250 for a modern mil-dot 4-9x50 scope and PU scope mount. That way i will already be halfway there with the correct mount. My only problem is i can not find any information regarding ring diameter anywhere on the internet. I have been told that it is 30mm and i have also been told that it is 1inch. So i figured it was time to go to a real source of info, the folks at SB :thumb:. I just have a feeling that i will get the mount and it will be too small to hold a modern scope, if it is too big that can be fixed easy enough. Does anyone know of any other mount? I do believe i have seen some kind of polymer mount with a rail, just cant find it again. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

BTW, i only plan on mounting anything on the side of the reciever, where the scope originally was. I will not remove my rear sight aperture to mount a scope. I am from the school of "scopes lose there zero, irons do not".

The first thing I found googling,

This SVT/PU scope is made of blued steel, the tube has a diameter of 26.5mm. It will fit SVT-38 or SVT-40 mount as well as PU mount.

It's a repro but fits original mounts so I would assume. You'd probably be better off hitting the gun boards with a question like this. I'm surprised a 44 would have been a "sniper". You sure about that?

problem solved,scroll down to the PU scope mount with 1'' split rings.

The original scope used their own dimensions and didn't fit the standardized 1 inch or 30mm rings that we use today. You're not going to be able to get a modern scope to fit the original rings. But there are a few places making modern mounts that use 1 inch or 30mm rings. They're probably a lot cheaper than an original mount too.

Original rings are out there ... a lot of the mounts being sold are reproductions, some parts (thumb screw, for example) do not fit the original mount. Check e-bay for miscelaneous PU mount componenets.

OP said a 1944 (date of mfr), not a model 44 tanker carbine. Was this rifle fitted with the mount by the armory, or is it someone else's unfinished project?

It was a sniper from the factory. I guess the scope and mount got lost in translation over the years. I think i may have figured out what i am gonna do, from the help of everyone. When i get it done and if i ever figure out how to get pictures put up i will let yall see how it went.
