    Thank you. About your scope I would say it's rather 1944

    That is great thanks!

    I plan to restore an ex sniper rifle with it in the long term. Just need to find the right rifle for it. I will buy a live one.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Ade,

    I recently picked up my next ex-sniper restoration rifle. It's a 1943 Tula refurbished rifle - now in a laminate stock. I have the mount - still need to get a rail (this rifle was originally tapped at the 53.5mm spacing) and am not sure if I will invest in another scope or just plan to use one of my others. Knowing my normal ways, though, some good deal will come around for a scope and I'll jump on it. Original scopes (without mount) can be found here for around $200.

    Here are a few pictures of the rifle: bad lighting but all I have for now.
