The difference is that the real ones were fitted together with the reciever and mount trued to each other with the rerticle of the scope inline with the bore.

The problem with the american put togethers is at extended ranges the bdc dials wont work properly because no one here has the machine tool jigs and technique the russians used to true everything up.

My opinion: if your not going to buy a 800$ mosin and want ascoped one just get a regular one and install a no-gunsmith mount and use a modern scope. The pu sniper scope is NOT an easy scope to learn to use. It is very unforging and proper parralax is very dependent on the shooter getting the exact same eye relief up down left right forward and back.

My mosin sniper with a good batch of ammo is sub moa. My nonsniper is about 1.5 to 2 moa with good ammo. I spend a LOT of my shooting time using iron sights

I have seen the pu scope and it does not look like fun to lean,unless you grew up with it

Hands down there are 2 options for a very accurate Mosin "out-of-the-box" so to speak. First is a Polish made M-44. Identified by an 11 in a oval stamped on top of the receiver. Simply the best put together Mosin ever Built. The Finnish M39 is your second choice. It is basically recycled receivers mated to new barrels. I have an M39 that will shoot MOA with iron sights.

If you want a good Sniper accurate rifle think of looking into a Savage 110 Tactical. For the money they can't be beat. Up the dollar scale some is the Remington PSS/TWS Rifle or what ever they are designating it today. They have changed it a couple of times before. Both rifles are excellent. But for the money go with the Savage. The PSS/TWS will not shoot anymore accurate from my experience. Unless you were to jump up to the Remington 40X Sniper Rifle but you are talking $$$$$.
