I just found this photo from WW2 of Russians in a store room full of Ross Mk. IIB rifles.

Supposedly in the late 1950s Russians won "running boar" event (or some such) with Rosses.
The Ross was reputedly the most accurate shooting sniper rifle of World War I and some Ross fans claimed US target rules in the first decade or 15 years of the 20th century had to be rewritten to exclude Rosses from service rifle matches to give US made rifles a chance to win.
Ironically, when Canada officially dumped the Ross, the immediate problems with improper disassembly of the Mk III had been resolved. However, there were still probably primary extraction problems supposedly endemic to straight pulls.
