So I bought an all matching refurbed 1943 PU a while back, and it's just kinda sat in the safe. Well I finally took her out to the range to sight her in, and fell in love with the scope and trigger pull immediately. Didn't take long to have her clover leafing the bullseye. Left the range and did a little hog control with her, and could not believe the dropping power, and ruggedness of the PU. Ended the night with Enemy at the Gates while scrubbing her down. The ease of takedown and maintenance was impressive. I can easily say I have a new found love for the mosin, and she'll be seeing the range and wilderness allot more now.
