Hey all,

I know scope mounts are available for the narrower than usual scope rail on my Romanian, I just can't seem to remember where to get them. Anybody here know?

Seems there was a brand of pellet rifle mounts that some folks had good results with as well, but my memory is vacant of the info.

Thanks!!!!

which is your romanian trainer, the one that looks like the Brno or the Cugir(similar to the prewar Geco)???

I don't know anything about the Brno or the Cugir. All I do know is that the grooves are too narrow for the typical .22 scope mounts that are out there.

I'll try to post a pic in the next couple of days.

Another way of asking what Raul wants to know:

Is it the 5 shot trainer (M1969) or the earlier, single shot, heavy barrel trainer made by CUGIR.

Its the M1969, 5 shot trainer. The date on it, if I remember, is actually 1979.

Actually bought a second one from the 80's. Better bluing and finish on the wood, but yucky trigger. So I sold it and kept the first, older one. After I stripped the nasty orange lacquer (or was it shellac finish?) off, it really looks nice with a couple of coats of polyurethane. I'm not interested so much in collecting as I am in using it.

Small game and targets are it's enemy. So with that in mind I'd like to fit a small 3x or 4x scope on it.

So yeah, the 5 shot with the hard to find magazines. Most accurate rifle I own. Hope I never break down and sell it.

If I recall correctly, Quik-site makes rings that workl for these. They make a see-thru ring that actually has the bottom open like a claw-type clamp where they can squeeze in and tighten up into the smaller groove opeing of the Romanian M69. You'll know what I mean when you see a picture of them. If I recall also, the scope will still be slightly offset to the left of top dead center. That doesn't affect anything other than it bugs people. If your a right-hand shooter, it will actually be better because it brings the scope closer to your face on the left side of the gun. Good luck


I did have another of ring that I made work also. I took a pair of the split rings (clamb shell) that Millet makes and I shaved a little off each side to make them squeeze tighter. You cant take too much off because they will squeeze too much on the tube of the scope then. What I did was took a little more off the bottoms and tapered the tops so they retained lose to the 1" tube, but squeezed more towards the grooves.

Don't buy those Romanian Trainer rings off of EPrey!

I use a pair of Burris Tip off 22 Zee rings on my Romainian Trainer. I crank them down as tight as I can and they work on the narrow grooves!

I had a pair of the EL Cheapo Kwik-Site rings for my Romanian Trainer. They work, but they are CHEEZY! :D
For the record, if anyone is interested, here is the Kwik-Site part # for the Romanian Trainer rings: KSN-TO22 1B

I offered those crappy Kwik Sites to a friend who needed some rings for his Romanian Trainer. He said, oh no. I will order the correct ones off of EGay, Well, he ended up with the exact same pair of rings that I offered him, only he paid $24 or $25 bucks for them!
I laughed so hard I think I cracked a rib! :D
