Only having owning a Lee Enfield .303 currently, I feel the urge to buy a Mosin soon for range shooting and possibly hunting. Is there a "best" model of Nagant I should particularly look for? One I should avoid even considering buying? Pic unrelated.
Finnish M39 is the pure cadillac model of all mosins.
Superb quality, accurate and smooth as hell, slightly better ergos.
Well the best are the odd, weird sniper models that are expensive and hard to find. The best non sniper models are the Finnish M39. As for worst, that's a bit hard but I would have to say that any old M91 isn't at the point the others are at.
They all suck cock
Milsurp is for faggots
Go buy a fucking Ruger American/CZ 527/CZ 550/Tikka T3/Sako A7/Winchester Model 70 etc.
t nugget owner among other things including but not limited to AR's, CZ's etc.
>However, it's still dogshit compared to your .303
Nah, if anything, they're on par at best. Enjoy your expensive ammo.
you could throw M/27 to that list then.
The problem with the pre-M39 models is the fact that they're picky about the ammo. You pretty much need to use Finnish 7.62x53R cartridges on 27 and 28, while M39 was made to withstand looted ruskie ammo.
>mad because his rifle doesn't shoot like Mëmo Haya and Slavsilly Zaytzev told me it would in my dreams and the ammo sucks cock and guess what factory loads for it suck, and the cheap stuff ain't all that cheap anymore
There is a Polish conversion of the Mosin called the M91/98/2x (24/25/26 depending on changed) It's about the same length as a K98k and best part:
IT'S IN 8MM MAUSER
Only made 77k of them though
By far the best is the Polish M44. Mine is from 1953, pic related.
thats pretty fucking good, he's using open sights and the front sight on that thing isnt exactly a thin razor. its obviously less than 2moa, if he had a scope to increase precision
any with bayo extended? heehee
also, how much did that set you back if you dont mind me asking? when did you get it? i havent seen one in that condition ever, thats amazing. literally looks like a brand new factory rifle
I should take more eventually, that's all I got right now.
Bought it for 325 bucks at a local gunsmith dude two years ago. he had another one in stock, I should have bought that one too.
Haven't seen anything like it since.
There are two typical types of Polish M44's you come across. Most are the immaculate never issued or used ones fresh out of the crate, the rest are mismatched and missing most of their finish since they were given as aid to worse off Warsaw pact countries and abused.
Yeah I do need to sight it in. I'll have to change the front post to a taller one and drift it. I was aiming at the bottom of the target and it hit near the top, over to the right. I was at 100 yards and the sights were set to 100 as well, so the post is too short.
Maybe I could use that chance to have a thinner front post.
I'm reluctant to change anything on the rifle though, that's why it isn't shooting at the point of aim.
Group size? That's probably more my fault.
yes we learned this in 6th grade science, explain to me how you can have high accuracy on a target when your front sight post is fatter than all 6 of the red rings of the circle you are shooting at. unless you shot with your m44 strapped in a non-mobile vise which we cant see from that pic, your rifle can shoot better
also, because im feeling generous and overlooking your little teenage angsty know it all cunt ass attitude, shoot your rifle with the bayonet extended and attached before fucking with the front sight. that is how the armorers sighted them in, and it will affect the POI. also, try shooting 147gr light ball, that is what poles used. you little projecting xbox aged faggot. im at least twice your age bitch
I'm the guy with the rifle, I didn't post >>28917196
yeah it could do better
Tried both extended and not. Didn't change much.
My only posts in this thread are
in that case, be sure to try dif ammo weights before going through too much trouble swapping sight posts. also, if you ever took apart the rifle and put it back together, make sure the tension is even between the tang screw and trigger guard screw, even a little flex with affect the POI
I use torque wrenches because over-torquing an action screw in a rifle I want to keep original (see "I'm reluctant to change anything on the rifle though" in >>28917221) and stripping it would be tragic.
Different ammo did have different impacts but all quite high and not as accurate as the ammo I was using for the picture.
because of the beauty of your stock and collectible nature of your variant i wouldn't mess with it any further than maybe getting a new front post and filing it to perfection, while saving the original. if it was any other mosin, i would give you the standard advice of making sure the stock wasnt contacting the barrel, shimming the tang, etc. but i would keep trying all the diff ammo you can. try to find silvertip polish lightball if you can, it comes in a blue cardboard box, laquer green steel case
>a real M-39 an not a shitty clapped out Mosin in M-39 stock.
It's pretty obvious.
