The thing that everyone needs to remember here when bashing this product is that these rifles are 70+ years old and are surplus rifles for around $100 at that. So why is everyone so worried about them getting heated up and loosing accuracy? If you want a good rifle buy one, if you want something cool to plink around with and cheap to buy and shoot that is fairly accurate then get a mosin. This is a neat idea for a scope mount on these rifles. The problem here is that a lot of people here at TFL think they know everything and they like to argue and put everything they dont like down when in fact if you read a lot of their post they know nothing at all and just like to here themselves talk. For god sakes this rifle is what it is, it is not a high dollar sniper rifle.
