I decided to grab it - price was great and even though the mount is a little rough, the scope is in fantastic shape. It was rebuilt in '59 so it should hold up well. Got it for less than a repro costs these days. It will be a good back up for my competition PUs and I can also use it for my repro PU sniper. I also have a pristine original Izhevsk-marked mount that I can use for it, too.
