There is a lot of history behind this rifle. It is the epitome of machines steel and hardwood. It is a functional 19th century solution that fought in WWI and WWII. There are many on the surplus market in 7.62 X 54R which is the Russian .308. It is a powerful cartridge that would be suitable for big game hunting with soft point ammunition. The military fodder are great for target practice at the range. These rifles are simple and easy to shoot. They are on the heavy side by today's standards but that absorbs the recoil. Some come with attached bayonets. Polish versions of the carbine like the one featured were in brand new condition stored since the 50's. Russia is disposing of old rifles like the Mosin Nagant, Tokarev's and captured German Mausers. For a reasonable price you get a very good rifle.
