It's actually "obrez", which translates loosely to "cut down", or "sawn off".  I wouldn't call any of the abominations I posted earlier an obrez though ...

NICE!  I have an ex-sniper that I would like to retrofit with the original style optic...will probably just get modern reproduction as I don't even know IF it can be redrilled and tapped.  Any ideas?

Ex-snipers get "re-snipered" regularly.  You can pick up a refurbed PU scope, or one of the reproduction scopes and mounts that were made in Eastern Europe or Ukraine a few years ago.  A good gunsmith can drill and tap for the base.  BTW, although original scopes are readily available, mounts and bases tend to be rarer, and pricey when you find an original Russian example.  As such, if you pay to have a competent gunsmith to "re-sniper" one, and buy original parts, you typically wind up with a gun that costs you as much or more than what the original snipers go for ...

I just bought a cheap base with rings, and a cheap 2x-7x and put on my 91-30. Sighted in easy and quick. Really good accuracy too.

I'm a collector.  As such, I have no interest in scoping or otherwise modifying old milsurps.  However, I do understand why others were so inclined when both Mosin guns and surplus ammo were so inexpensive.  Now that neither of these are readily available or cheap on either the primary or secondary markets, I'm not sure what the attraction is.  There are far better platforms in modern rifles for building accurate range or hunting guns.  It's also probably cheaper to build a modern rifle than an old Mosin, at least if you're paying today's prices for the guns ...

Had a chance to try it out yet? I always wondered how those kind of mounts do.  Do they tend to move around with each shot so you can never really get it dialed in.  Did you have the bolt bent or buy one already done? Looks good.
