Hannah fires her M44 Moisin Nagant carbine.
Interesting, if like me you have a family member who owns an M44 Moisin Nagant carbine in 7.62x54R. Brass Stacker has a see-thru scout scope mount for Mosin Nagant M38s, M44s & T53s. It is available on Amazon for $63.00.
As advertised, it allows for mounting of a scout scope or other long eye-relief optics on the Nagant while allowing for see-through for use of the fixed iron sights and works with an unmodified straight bolt handle with no stripper clip interference. There is no permanent modification to the firearm and no drilling and tapping of the receiver required.
The Brass Catcher website for the unit contains this more detailed description of the specifications:
This Mount utilizes the barrel pin hole and the pivot pin hole in the rear sight block. The Mount will accommodate a front to back (horizontal, parallel to bore axis) pin center distance of 1.56" (39.6mm) to 1.79" (45.4mm) and allows for an up and down (vertical, perpendicular to bore axis) pin center distance of .18" (4.6mm) to .41" (10.3mm). The Mount is designed to fit over rear sight blocks that measure between .750" (19.05mm) and .787" (20.00mm) wide. The total weight including hardware is 5.4 oz. We have made every reasonable effort to ensure that this product will fit the majority of M38, M44 & T53's. However, due to the large number of these firearms produced over many years around the world, it is impossible for us to allow for all manufacturing variation. Proper tightening of all hardware should result in no movement of the mount during normal firing recoil. If for any reason our Mount does not work with your specific M38, M44 or T53 it can be returned (undamaged) for a full refund.
They also have one for the Moisin 91-30.
If anyone has experience with this mount, please leave your assessment in the comments. Thanks.
