My 1943 "IZZY" M91/30 'true' PU sniper...that I bought 'used' from a gunsmith shop & store. You'd look at it and it would go off.

I never measured the trigger pull, though I had to replace the trigger leaf spring and trigger; after it had failed my perpendicular 1 foot drop test on a carpeted floor.

The Russian commissar, that did drop tests with live ammo on M1891's in a New England Westinghouse gun factory here in the U.S. --- in 1915; was tricked by factory workers, when they purposely made the trigger pull so light that the M1891 would fail on his drop test --- And it did go off...putting a hole in the factory roof.
