ATI Mosin-Nagant Scope Mount

Greetings Bloggers

One of the nice things about a bolt action military rifle is that they are relatively cheap to buy and reasonably cheap to modify. Take the venerable Russian Mosin -Nagant rifle for instance, you can usually pick them up for around $200 – $400 in NZ..( Bargain) They come in “Refurbished Condition” (which means MINT) complete with bayonet, sling and cleaning kit………………… The only thing missing is the Vodka!!!!!
One of the first things a lot of shooters want to do is put a scope on it and that’s where ATI (Advanced Technologies Institute) products come in handy. As we are their NZ Agent, we stock their scope mount and turn-down bolt handle combo’s. One of the things that I like about the ATI Mosin-Nagant Scope Mount ~ Y13 is that it easily mounts onto the receiver. – some drilling and tapping is needed. (all items are supplied)
But here’s the “Kicker” – Unlike other brands of Mosin-Nagant Scope Mounts, that will only mount a Long Eye Relief Scope, the ATI Mount will take either a Long Eye Relief (Scout) Scope that is mounted forward on the rail, or you can mount an ordinary Eye Relief Scope that is mounted to the rear on the rail…………Your Choice!!!!!!!
This is great because (in my opinion) you can mount a Long Eye Relief (scout) scope on your Mosin-Nagant Short Carbine turning it into a short “Scout Sniper” Carbine and a ordinary Eye Relief Scope on your Mosin-Nagant Long Rifle, turning it into a “Vasily Zaytsev” Sniper Rifle using the same ATI Scope Mount………………… You will probably end up buying 2 mounts – One for each Rifle.
One useful Quartermaster tip – When you are bolting the Scope Mount onto the rear sight, it pays to use Loc-Tite on the screws as the Russian 7.62x54R round is fairly GRUNTY and the recoil tends to loosen the screws otherwise.

Don’t underestimate the Mosin-Nagant rifle as I have owned several long rifles and carbines in the past and have found them to be accurate shooters, especially when you upgrade them with an ATI Scope mount topped off with a decent Scope.

Until next time……………………. Happy Shooting!!!!!
