FYI to all the new Mosin owners;

I got the Mosin out yesterday and proceeded to run twenty rounds through it benched, shooting 100 meters with the stock sights. I've always thought the recoil to be pretty tame with the 147 grain until I tried it seated.

Apparently, I was wrong :devilsidesmile:

I'm not gonna be shooting any rifle for awhile, but I will be adding a small size slip on rubber butt pad soon (everyone is telling me this is the size that fits). On the plus side it was shooting groups consistently within a five inch circle so a bent bolt and scope are in the future. This is gonna be my five hundred yard rifle at the local range. Hope this helps someone else out.

Btw, I've nicknamed it Thor's Hammer. :D

I like this one. I think it looks better than the slip on and is just as cheap.

It's from http://www.tickbitesupply.com/mos.html

Everybody I know that has one of these is in absolute love with this product, it's also not a permanent mod as it just replaces the steel buttplate and can be reinstalled at any time. I don't use anything cause I don't find the Mosins to have that strong of a recoil anymore but all the guys I converse and shoot with swear by these things.
