Why yes a Mosin's barrel is tapered.  That's why there are various sizes of this ring.  You buy the size that comes closest to how much barrel you have left. 

I'll look at their directions first, but Tab and Peg all good suggestions.   I suspect once snug and centered a few taps with the hammer and then set the screws (with LocTite) and it'll be done.  I 'll see what they recommend.   It'll be good to wrap this project up.   if I can get it done by Friday morning then I could go to the 100yd range and sight all these rifle in properly.

When you screw in the set screws it should make a mark that you can see when you take it back off. Then you would know where to put the dimples or flats if you choose to do so.

if you don't put them there (flats or dimples) the set screws are useless as they will just slide on the round barrel, they will work forward and the whole sight will fall off.

Okay, as you may have noted from the FedEx thread, the slip-on barrel mount came.

I followed their instructions, which included pushing, with a hammer, the ring as far on the barrel as far as possible.  I drilled a barrel sized hole in a 2x4, slipped it over the barrel and used that as a way to really drive the ring as far onto the barrel as possible with the hammer.  The set screws are offset and were very pointed, so in theory any attempt turn the ring one way or another is met by resistance from the screw on the the opposite side.  Kudos to Brass Stacker for a very neat little product.  They have lots of neato products for various platforms.  http://brassstacker.com/



So all that remains is to sight in.

Another one project completed.




Two things I'd never really noticed about the Mosin-Nagant, and I'm sure it may vary depending on model.  First there's no safety.  Load and shoot.   I'm fine with that, just never really noticed before.  Secondly I like the finger notch, if that's what it is, behind the trigger guard.  A nice touch in shooting comfort.  Not something you'd expect to see on an old miltary rifle.

Good to see it finally coming together, Alf...... looks good.
"I expect perdition, I always have. I keep this building at my back, and several guns handy, in case perdition arrives in a form that's susceptible to bullets. I expect it will come in the disease form, though. I'm susceptible to diseases, and you can't shoot a damned disease." ~ Judge Roy Bean, Streets of Laredo

For the Patriots of this country, the Constitution is second only to the Bible for most. For those who love this country, but do not share my personal beliefs, it is their Bible. To them nothing comes before the Constitution of these United States of America. For this we are all labeled potential terrorists. ~ Dean Garrison

Hi;

     The safety on the Mosin is on the bolt. Pull back on the round knob and turn either left or right ( I forgot which ). Try this while no rounds are in the weapon.

I don't want to know that, dipsic.   Now I'll be fretting over whether the safety is on or off.   I'm better just thinking:  Bolt open - safe.  Bolt closed - shoot.   

And what good does it do to try this with no rounds in the gun?   I mean how do I know it wouldn't go off?  Here, hold my beer.  What's the worst that could happen?
