Super sweet, I really dig the look of these with the proper scope. Did you pick this up at a shop or from a collector?
Did they select particularly accurate Mosins to create these or did they just tailor any ol Mosin with a scope and send them off?
Considering the wartime time saving measures taken on the Mosin production I am curious. Though, yours does not exhibit the beaver chewed examples of other Mosin's I have seen during wartime production. From what I see in the pics, the machining is quite up to pre war standards.
I ask because I have accuracy issues with mine, probably operator error with my eyes and that eternal sight radius with irons....I have considered hunting down a proper (yet mismatched) Russian scope some day, as my Mosin is none to special, to improve my current MOE groups....where E stands for elephant.
When I shoot mine, I have to avoid lodgepole pine stands...otherwise a tree might come down.
Very nice addition to your collection for sure, congrats!
