Day at the Range

I love shooting at the range. For some people it’s practice. For me it is more like a therapy. I swapped out the JMeck scope mount on my Mosin Nagants. The 1933 Hex receiever Mosin was a good shooter but I could never group as tight as I knew was possible out of the other gun, a 1943 round receiver Mosin. The swap took about 45 minutes one afternoon but everything was tight as can be. I love the JMeck mount. You can see these at: JMeck Scope Mounts. They are low profile and easy to install. I even did an install video on YouTube to show how to install one. Here are some pictures of my beautiful 91/30 with the Jmeck mount and Leupold scope installed. I refinished the stock myself many years ago when I was just getting into purchasing and hunting with these old military guns:

Accuracy with this new mount compared to the old 4x scope on the scout mount set-up? 1-2″ a 100 yards. That is what I consider practical accuracy for hunting purposes. This is especially true when you can ring  that kind of accuracy from a gun that was made during one of the worst parts of World War II! Here are my last two shots after one slight adjustment:

I was shooting at 100 yards. The photo makes the target look bigger that it actually appeared. That is a pretty small 10-ring! Awesomeness! Expect to see this gun in action in my next GUN TALES hunting videos.


I also took out the Olympic Arms AR-15. I just installed a “laser” and sighted it in, just for fun. What a great shooter. Olympic Arms rifles have changed my mind about accuracy from an AR-15 platform. I can shoot just about any brand of ammunition and end up with groups in the 10-ring at 100 yards all day long. What a fine gun.

Notice my new Scopecoat from the fine people at Devtron as well as my Hyskore Rapid Fire shooting sytem and the paracord sling, handmade by a US military veteran, by Recoil Rifle slings. Add all of these products together and you have a fine list of firearm accessories. If you haven’t been to your local shooting range lately, its time to go! Celebrate the 2nd Ammendment proudly. We have some wonderful freedoms in this country!
