View Full Version : Should I put a bipod on my classic mosin nagant.

It's a sweet rifle even for the $139 price tag. I put a scope on a rail on the rear sight to clear the straight bolt. I got it lined up with a laser. Shoots real good now. But being light weight and a thin barrel it likes to jump a little. So I was thinking on installing a bipod on it. Just have to find a simple sturdy bipod no plastic crap.

UTG makes great cheap bipods, and yes, you should. You're already indicating that you might need it, meaning you have a level of "lack of confidence" in your current setup having optimum accuracy, so take the steps to instill full confidence.

And remember...

Another issue is finding a muzzle brake for the 91/30. There seems to be lots for the m44 but not much for the full length rifle.

If you feel it needs a bipod, toss one one there. Considering the soviets made a couple million of them, I wouldnt worry to much about the "classic" portion of it. As far as a muzzle brake, why worry about a mosin specific one? Considering it is a 7.62 diameter bullet, fn fals, m14, ect muzzle brakes will work as well. Lots of yanks are beginning to use m14 muzzle brakes on sks' s. I have a clone of an fn brake on my sks. The bullet diameter is the only thing to really worry about.

Only you can decide whats right for your rifle, beauty or fuctionality is in the eye of the beholder.

What style of shooting are you doing? Off the bench I'd recommend a front bag? If you're in the bush with it, by all means put a bipod on it; although a bipod won't really help with jumping? Maybe try shooting sticks first(two sticks/dowels/etc. and a rubber band/hunk of string) to see if a front support is your cup of tea?
