I agree with you Double Duece, good point.
I'll have to check my source, but I've read the opposite. That the snipers came off the same line as the other 91/30 and they hand picked the best shooters then outfitted them. But that was way before my time and I can only cite the literature. But as they say history is sworn true by those who write the books.
