I've read that this scope mount is the top of the line for mounting a scout scope on a Mosin, although expensive.
My question is, from actual users of this mount, does it leave marks on the firearm after removal. Does it maintain zero for extensive periods of time (years), I am seriously concerned although I know Mosins aren't the most expensive collectibles, that I don't mar the finish. I happen to have very fine examples of refurbished imported with markings rifles. I would like to add a scope, I know you can get a modern quality firearm for less than making the mosin a MOA firearm. My son-in-law bought a scope and mount set and the mount wouldn't stay tight for more than three shots. It also did mar the finish.
Thanks for any help my eyes + age require assistance.
