So i got myself a jmeck mount and turn down bolt mod. So now i am looking for a scope that wont look totally ridiculous on a mosin. i found barska sks scope 4x21 but $70 shipped on ebay not sure if its worth it as i can get a much higher magnification from barska for the same price. what do you guys have on yours? pictures and suggestions would greatly be appreciated.

The only scope I ever had on a Mosin was a PU sniper scope.

I'd recommend better glass than Barska though, http://www.opticsplanet.net/burris-timberline-4x-20mm-riflescope-201312.html

I have one of the long barrel Mosins that I picked up for $75 back in the early 90's with a beautiful bore; it shoots quite accurately. I had a scope mount put on it and threw on a spare 3x9 33mm scope (Buschnell) that I had laying around. The idea was to have a backup hunting gun or to loan to a buddy when I went deer hunting.

It actually looks quite nice with the scope and the wood. I don't think I have a photo here, but I'll look.

Here are some pics of some Mosins I saw in Mongolia:
