I thought the same but there’s something about the Springfield optic. It’s very clear and comfortable, just underpoweredOf the ones shown, I would take the PU. In preference to that, I would take a No.4Mk.1(T)
The 03A4 (I have one) is a non-starter because of the weak optics, I have no experience with the 98 or the 99.
The 03a4 is by far the most comfy to handle. I would still pick the PU just because it’s so user friendly and the optic platform is monkey proof. That, and it’s basically indestructibleMy ranking order would be.
# 1 K98 High Turret (superior optics)
# 2 1903A4 (ergonomic perfection)
# 3 91/30 PU (robust construction)
# 4 Type 99 (excellent penetration)
I would also be perfectly happy with a SMLE No.4T.
