M39 Mossin Nagant for across the course

I was wondering if anyone has used on for across the course. I was thinking i could put a websling on it or maybe a 1907 sling on it. I put one on lay away a few days ago. The sights trigger all seem really nice. I need some factory ball ammo thats OK any suggestion.


Anyone ever tried it?

I used one in a match in Mississippi in May, 2012. A match for milsurp bolt action rifles made before 1945 only, and all shooting from prone from 200, 300 and 600 yards.

The M39 has only one inch sling swivels, I modified a USGI sling clip to attach to the swivel and used a USGI web sling to sling up.

I have toyed with the idea of shooting an M39 just for fun in XTC High Power, but I keep on grabbing my match LRB M14 for that! I believe if you practice enough, you could do pretty good with one, but I would steer more to shooting one in a Mid Range Prone match, 600 yards, with match ammo, you'll hit the black every time!

Oh yeah, I won that Milsurp match in Mississippi, using that M39 against all of those Mosin Nagants, Mausers, K31's, etc, the M39 completely outclassed them all. The M39 is one heck of a rifle!
