HS,

Cool looking rig you got there. Do you have a year, manufacturer for yours?
Think mama paid $130 for mine - including an 18" pig sticker (bayonet).

Have a '36 Tula, but without the scope. With the 'limited' range (100 yrds) I have on my property, don't really need the scope. Get my ammo from a gentleman in town - copper tipped 180 grain. 2 rounds - 2 deer in the freezer. Last one left a hole I could have put my fist into. Kinda sorta hurried the shot, putting it right into the right front shoulder. The exit wound wasn't pretty and there wasn't much left of the shoulder roast, not that side anyway. Pic of the buck (and rifle) is somewhere in the photo section.
