Don't really understand why anyone would want to pay $500 for a reproduction, when a real one is only $50 more.

Both say arsenal refinished after WWII. I think those are both the same lot as the wideners PU Sniper?

Says that the scopes were manufactured in 2009. Not original.

Pretty much every Soviet Mosin Nagant in existence was "arsenal refinished after WWII"

The Wideners ones are made up from random 91/30s "made in different factories from 1939 to mid 1940's" and come with "an authentic M91 PU sniper scope that was manufacitured around 2009 to the WWII specs in Russa"

The AIM and Classic ones have real WW2 era scopes, and are the right years (1942-on).

The current batches we have seen photos of were processed for export my Tula, but other than the location of the markings, don't look any different than the previous batches processed by Molot.

Some discussion and photos here: http://www.calguns.net/calgunforum/s...d.php?t=983970

I don't know why anyone would want an original pu scope that is of poor quality optics and ready to fall apart unless your a collector who sleeps with, or fondles your original sniper while watching reruns of enemy at the gates.

If you a shooter and want to get off the 50/a00 yard sniper line get a repro with new PU optics or try one of my PU modern scope mounts.

That has always been on their site. They won't ship to an 01, but they will ship to an 03.

The question is, will there ever be a PU thread without 6mmintl mentioning his mounts?

I am a shooter and am rarely at 50/100 yards. Those old crappy PU optics seem to work pretty well.

i do not think so . i am very happy the my PU scope thank you and i use it a lot. His scope is kind of like a resto mod car , modern drive train in a old body. Better but it takes away from why we like these PUs.

you sound old with bad eyes.

indeed, why do we even collect these old fuddy duddy rifles when we could have new tacticooltastic stuff, and take advantage of all this modern tech? why should we shoot these old guys at all?

Default NO NO

No you have it all wrong, you are supposed to go to the range and spend 30 minutes going threw your charts and selection of hand loads. then you consult your personal weather station. after all that you make one shot each hour to let the barrel cool down. be sure to never smile and ignore all around you and go home after 4 rounds have been expended.

The reason that is funny is because it is true. I have seen people at the range that are so scientific about it that it cannot possibly be fun. God bless 'em, but I am not that sophisticated. In all honesty, reliably banging a 12x12 plate at hundred yard with open sights is about as accurate as I need to be with a long gun.

What is fun about our WEGC C&R shoot is nobody takes themselves seriously. We just blast away at whatever metal plate that is still standing at 100 yards and have fun. I am sure some of us take accuracy seriously but not at our shoot.It is all about playing with our toys and sharing.
