Used Mosin 91/30, this one is kind of an odd ball. On the surface, its a fairly typical post war Re-arsenal. Forced matched parts and things of this nature. The bore is dark but has very strong rifling. Where this gun gets unusually, is that its a former PU sniper rifle. The rifle was made in 1942 but was re stamped 52, the date stamp reads as "1942/52" the original screw holes where the PU mount would have been have been welded over. Neat piece that is in good shape
