So I recently bought a Mosin Nagant that was previously drilled and tapped then decomissioned. I had the intention of getting an original styled scope mount and a more modern scope put on it, but I wondered if I should just buy a Marlin 1895 GBL for this reason: I'm planning two hunting trips, one in CO for elk/deer, and another in Missoula Montana for bear. Would the Mosin suite me just as well as a Marlin 1895 GBL, even though the bolt is sticky as honey and it's longer than my little sister? Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
