Nice rifle! I like RRA stuff a lot!

What kind of groups you get with that? We want to seem some pics! :D

I have my scope mounted a little lower also, but it's what's comfortable for you. I calculated the proper ring height to put the scope cross hairs at the same height as the traditional irons sights would be.

You're right about the height. This was the first time out with the scope, and the rings didn't seem high enough. So I tried the riser that came with the gun. Too tall!

It shoots well. With the 1 in 9 twist and heavy bullets I've been pleased. Don't have pics now, but will get some next time out.

I was out shooting my 20" standard A4 with a 1 in 8 twist this weekend. They are really a lot of fun. So far I'm getting consistent .5" groups or better out using 55 grain v-max.

What kind of trigger do you have in it? I put a Timney trigger in mine, so far it's a nice upgrade... much better than stock!

My RRA shoots a consistant .5 MOA. The trigger is a Rock River National Match, but it's non adjustable and has way too much creep. It breaks at about 3 lb. It' much better than the old Bushmaster A2 I have. You just about have to stand on the trigger on that one.

My trigger gage only goes up to 74 oz and won't measure the pull on my RRA trigger. It's probably around 5 lbs and I'd like to bring it down a little. Got too many other projects going on right now to worry about it

Nice work! What kind of stock is that?
Where did you find a scope like that? It looks totally authentic!
Wow its kind of nice to fool someone...lol...Ok here is the story behind this mosin. I bought it at a gun show 8 or 9 years ago as a sniper rifle.....um yeah Im 90 percent sure I got taken. Thing is I traded my room mate rent for the paymet of the rifle....so im not too much at a loss.

The stock is a Advance technology product and the scope is a PO 4x24 red lighted night assist with shoulder width range finder built in. The scope actually belongs on the Dragonov sniper but was on this when I got it. I modified the stock and voided the warranty to get the side mount scope to attach. I have to find a way to change the x and y axis of the whole scope and to bring the center line of the scope closer to center of rifle. It currently rests to shooters left of centerline by a few inches.

It's the same way with me. I'd like to get a better trigger, but too many other things going on now.
