Now that they are getting scarcer and more expensive it appears that the manufacturers of firearms accessories have discovered what a diamond in the rough the lowly Mosin Nagant actually is.
After years and years of World War II films showing the Russians halting the Nazi war machine in the ruins of Stalingrad the Mosin Nagant is finally being seen as desirable.
Of course cans of mil-surp ammo with near 30-06/.308 ballistics plays a role in making this military surplus bolt action popular.
But something else is happening.
There is a resurgence in the practice of sporterizing and modifying WW I and WW II rifles. Not the rare ones but the common place ones.
The Mosin Nagant sniper rifles are fetching prices north of the $500 mark and are collectables.
On the other end of the spectrum $200 Mosin Nagants are the material for projects. turned down bolts and scope mounts are just the start.
There are small things one can do to improve the rifle that do not require major modifications.
This rear site is one of those.
