    can anyone help a brotha out. i was looking at getting the no gumsmithing rings and a scope for my nagant. i have no idea where to begin when it comes to optics.

    i think i need a LER scope because of the distance from my eye, but i have no idea where to begin as far as magnification or any of that shit.

    Unless you are going to fool with getting a turned down bolt handle and drilling/tapping your receiver to mount a base in the standard location, or get a milsurp PU scope ( http://www.opticsbestbuy.com/PU-Sniper-Scope-Black.html ) and modify your stock and receiver, the only option you have is a scout/pistol scope on a mount that will replace/attach to the rear site base. (good)Scout scopes are very expensive and 99% of pistol scopes you are going to run across are not going to hold up to the hellacious pounding from x54.

    IMO this is way more hassle than it is worth, especially considering the rifle and average milsurp ammo isn't very mechanically accurate to start with. I'm just going to stick with the standard irons and use it for what I bought it for, a cheap and fun toy.

    Just so you know, a Nagant is an old revolver. I imagine you mean a Mosin Nagant. Right?

    I didn't read them, just found them... so don't sue me for bad info or info you didn't want/need.
    Plus, I have a good lawyer. :fawk:

    Screw the scout mount style of scope mount.

    A scout mount MIGHT hold for a few shots of a low recoiling round. The Mosin is not a low recoiling rifle. :)

    Seriously, unless you are going to do the mod properly, its going to be worthless.

    Those scout mounts are crap.

    I put a Long eye scope on my wife's Nagant for kicks. I got a mount that went into the rear sight base then attached the scope to that using rings.

    It was a pain, mostly to make sure it was even.

    The scope I used was this (got it off amazon):

    NcSTAR Pistol & Long Eye Relief Scope - 2-7x32 Pistol Scope / Blue / Ring SPB2732B


    I still prefer iron sights but she likes it. :dunno:

    I drilled and tapped mine, turned down the bolt, and replaced the stock. It's fun and seems to hold up well enough, but I probably wouldn't bother a second time around. If you want long-distance precision, you can do way better for not a whole lot more money.
