    FInn m/39 Mosin-Nagant *New* long eye relief scope mount

    Many of you will remember the long eye relief scope mounts I made for the Finn m/39 Mosin-Nagant rifles a few years ago. I didn't make a lot of them but those I made I sold here in this forum. Since that time I've been pretty regularly battered with email requests for that scope mount... but alas I'm not making any more.

    One night not long ago I came across a website with scope mounts. The Swedish m/96 mount looked a lot like the one that I designed and made. I emailed the website owner and offered to try one and send him customers if I liked it. He sent me one and I gotta admit its slightly improved over the one I made.

    In discussing various other scope mounts with this guy (Liam) we talked about the Finn m/39 mount and I sent him photos and gave him permission to copy the design if he liked it. I emphasized that it needed to extend rearward beyond the rear sight base in order that the NcStar 2-7x32 handgun scope had enough rearward position movement.

    In just the last couple weeks he finished making the Finn m/39 mount and sent me one. He improved the way it mounts over what I had done (dang it!) but I gotta say that I like it and I can recommend it. You can't get a lower scope mount for the Finn m/39. The limiting factor is the protective "ears" on the rear sight base which you have to work around with scope ring selection.

    I can't make a Swede mount or Finn m/39 mount any better than these two. They're the only ones of his mounts that I have here now. And thankfully I now have someplace to send people who email me begging for one of them..

    That is a very good scout type mount for the M39 Finn. Better than any other commercial scout mount replacing the rear sight to dat. Note how low the scopes ocular lens sits over the receiver ring....that's just how it should be. With a Burris or Vortex 2x7 Scout scope, in Weaver low rings it should really bring out the best in the Finn.

    Thanks, Dutchman. I went to his site and he offers the mount for my Yugo 24/47 as well. I see one in my near future. I have been looking for awhile but the ones I could find that would fit were either cost prohibitive or stuck way up in the air like a railroad bridge over a canyon. james
