This firearm needed some elbow grease, but it turned out and shoots great!

I bought two of these from Bud's. Both of the barrels were pretty much shot out and resulted in keyholing at 100 yards.One had a major scratch in the chamber, preventing me from chambering a round. The finish on both was very rough, no accessories and lots of cosmolene. Neither was what you would call a shooter. Have sold both now. The defects weren't obvious on receipt. Only after they were stripped and cleaned. I probably should have tried to return them... Oh well. I would just go with a Soviet M44 were I to do this again. While you might find a gem in the rough, the odds are not always in your favor. I do have a Mosin 91/30, but it's a very different critter from these mutts.

The wood looks like it's been dragged through a few rice paddies, but the metal is all good. Cleaned it up and took it to the range with my Mosin and a box of ammo. Kicks like a mule, making the Mosin feel like a .22 in comparison. The old iron sights are good, and it got a few of the older folks come over to take a look. A good time for very few dollars! Once again, Thanks, Bud's!

LOVE LOVE LOVE it! My 1st order from Bud's and I couldn't be happier. Great gun, all matching numbers, amazing trench art! Everything in perfect working order. Of course, covered in cosmoline, but I wouldn't expect anything different. The weapon was in my hands in less than a week! I wish I had bought two! I'm now a loyal Bud's customer for life. Buy with confidence!

It came as described, ugly but serviceable. The bore was shiny and the action locked up tight. Bud's had the best price of the e-tailers I searched when I looked for it. It cleaned up nicely and is accurate enough for a surplus rifle. Thanks Bud's.
