    Gun City Mosin Nagant PU sniper reproduction

    Its been a few years since GC has brought in and made up some PU snipers (with replica mounts & scopes) for resale in NZ. I think they were retailing somewhere between $1299-$1499 dependent on if there was a sale etc. Therefore I was wondering since then how have the rifles have performed and if they were worth the fuss after all? Thanks.

    Can you even get ammo for them now?
    Sharp tool, less effort.

    @Cordite Not entirely familiar with the 54r ammo situation on the commercial market atm but I think its still mostly available at the big stores. There must be quite a number of these repro rifles floating around. I'm curious if they shoot any good or if the scopes have kept zero after use.

    I had one that i bought for 500 bucks and they just slapped the scope mounts on with no effort to make them square to the bore.
    They take a lot of work to mount them properly.
    I ended up swapping mine for a jungle carbine.

    I like the PU Mosin, the GC conversions are crap, every single one I've ever come across was rough and obviously done as quickly as possible. Can't say I recommend them.

    No, the ones i purchased were bare rifles through Reloader's supplies one had a beautiful hex receiver, i then went through the hoops of creating a repro snipper variant, improving accuracy and leaning where she needed upwards pressure, after that the old girl shot really well, i didn't mind the rifle at all.
