I've always loved "improvements" that cause major problems. How does one reload that rifle? It looks like removal of some parts is needed. Also, the bolt is nowhere near your hand, so you must unshoulder the gun to operate the bolt. Classic.

MANY folks we call "Bubba" didn't finish a simple K-12 education. MOST, if not all, of the people I spend time with are packing at least a high school education, most have several college degrees. I am sure that I am not the only one here who knows people with the knowledge and education I am referring to!

Proper spelling, grammar, and punctuation is not a right. It's not a privilege. It's our DUTY to master OUR OWN FRICKING language. If we don't, we are ILLITERATE and doomed to third world status!!!



Sportinized?????



REALLY?...SPORTINIZED???



Well, I guess even Bubba gets to coin a new phrase every now and then. :tisk:

And you DIDN'T know what he was referring to, or what he meant by the term?

I have a four-year degree in Mechanical Engineering, completed some graduate work, taught undergrad Engineering courses after receiving my Bachelors, and I scored a combined 1340 on my SAT's before I entered college nearly 50 years ago. Does this cover your literacy requirement?

I tend to enjoy such wordplay, and I specifically enjoy and often find useful this sort of coined wordage.

Often these coined words are more expressive and are more entertaining than use of the 'standard' terminology.

"Finned" is not a standard word, either, but it DOES pretty accurately describe the same generic stuff as the far more boring "Finnish captured, stamped, (possibly) modified, (probably) improved, and (almost certainly) issued to their soldiers".

I am not all that sure that back in the day "Sporterized' wasn't originally a coined word that would draw objection by the Language Police.

Call me guilty. I have been known to have used the term "Sportyfied' on these boards on more than one occasion.

What does a formal education have to do with intelligence? Educate an idiot, and all you get is an educated idiot.

How long do you think the barrel is on that thing and how would it affect accuracy?
I would estimate that barrel at somewhere around 20 inches (+/-).

The good thing (if there is such a thing about this rifle) is if the barrel was crowned right (and if it didn't start out as a carbine), it is probably going to have nearly intact rifling all the way to the muzzle, and should bullet test perfectly.

The bad thing (in addition to the previously mentioned handling qualities deficiencies) is there is no telling how good or bad that 'remote control' trigger is going to be. I am willing to bet that all it does is push on the standard Mosin trigger (which probably wasn't removed) through an intervening link, which just adds a whole other level of 'slop' to what is usually a pretty sloppy operation to start with.

Other than that, I would estimate its probable inherent 'bench' accuracy as about what you would get from an M38.
