They made good rifles back then... Not only accurate, but sturdy, built to last a long time.
I remember I was shocked when saw pics of a Russian soldier in Syria, in Aleppo somewhere, I believe, with a Mosin-Nagant sniper rifle, last year
This is a weapon introduced back in 1891 (!), which Vasily Zaitsev (remember "Enemy at the Gates"?) used to take out a rival German sniper, some kind of European champion sharpshooter, in Stalingrad
Apparently, they still got many of them laying around in some warehouse, and the military still, to this day, uses them, they are still good!
Saw active use in the Donbass conflict too, by both pro-Kiev
and pro-Russia militias
