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.
That rifle hanging on the wall of the working class flat or labourer's cottage is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there."
