I converted this gun myself so I know it was done right. The bore is nice with sharp lands and grooves and a nice tight muzzle; and I gave it an 11degree target crown. It is an Izzy. The bolt does not match the rifle but it cycles as smooth as butter because I polished the all of the camming surfaces on it. Firing pin protrusion is good. I actually got the PU scope/ mount/ mount base on a different rifle about a year ago but whatever idiot drilled the mounting and dowell pin holes in the receiver should have never been allowed to be around a drill press or much less a gun because the holes in the receiver were way off and poorly drilled. The mount base was thankfully undamaged though so i put it on one of my nicer shooters. The receiver was stoned smooth to match the mount base prior to drilling and instillation. It sat square with no wobble. The dowell pin holes were drilled and dowells pressed in after the mount was installed. I unfortunately used red locktite on the mounting screws, so those will NOT be coming out ever again. (apparently permanent actually means something with locktite, lol) One of the base screws does not have it's locking screw installed because I could not get it timed right to line up, but this is no big deal because of the previously mentioned red locktite. The mount and mount base are made of the correct machined steel, not the pot metal crap of modern replicas. The scope itsself is not origional WWII vintage but I believe it to be an actual soviet (post war) PU scope. The reticle moves with the windage/ elevation adjusting knobs unlike the modern replicas. It is rough zeroed and at 50yds it can shoot a one hole 3 shot groop with Prvi 150 grain fmj. I also gave this rifle a trigger job (breaks like glass and feels like the 3-5 lb range), shimmed the action with aluminum (pop can metal) and I also free floated the barrel. The barrel is wrapped with oiled cloth under the front hand guard retaining band to support it as was done in WWII. The stock was re-finished with satin spar urethane and a few months later coated in a few coats of arrow wood finish. I have somewhere along the lines of 30 hours of work in this gun and it has been my baby, and it is a hell of a shooter. Gettin low on christmas funds though so my loss is your gain. I will have pics up in the next day or two. $350 FTF Indianapolis area. PM me with any questions or offers.
