    I bought a mount for a turk mauser and "Dan" that I bought it from also makes /sells for mosins... Its a scout type mount that clamps/pins to the existing sight base . No modification to the gun needed and is rock sturdy. It has an elevation adj. too. He said to me he has scopes too.. here is his e-mail DANO5058@hotmail.com

    On the scope just try to get at least a 32 mm other wise there a bit hader to use for hunting. Thats been my experiance with the "scout mounted" scopes. That and be sure it's a compact scope, a full size will occasionally drop the case back into the action from hitting the bottom of the scope on ejection. And that would suck with a "Rackasarous" standing in front of you!!! Those are the things I've run into before.

    No prob. I'm not a huge fan of the scout mounts, but there OK. I had one or two before and with a 40mm your able to do a pretty good lead swing on running game with them, do stay away from the 28mm though, you just don't get enough of a good sight picture for my tastes. Might just be me,,, being an old geizzer and all, but the 40mm 3x7 compact I used on that one worked very well for me. I sold that one to a friend and he took his 4th deer with it in 2 years last year, that x54 will put a smack down on a deer!!! His brother got a beatuy of a moose in Maine last year weighinging in @ a bit over 1100 lbs, dumped it right in it's tracks from what I was told. Same gun.

    Sounds impressive!!!

    I ended up getting a 2-6x32 Simmons scope. Got it for a $100 off. This is what it looks like, although, the scope has been moved back on the rails...

    Ya I thought it looked a bit far forwards, the mount looks a bit higher than the one I had too, any issues with cheek weld on the stock with it?? Some of the stick on neopreme will solve that if there is , and it's avalible in several thickness's, it can however damage a finer finish if it's left on forever. But I've used it on several guns before with decent results and on a milt stock it shouldn't be an issue.
