The best poor mans rifle out their. Can't beat the price on surpluse ammo. And new ammo is cheep compared to other similer calibers. Its a love it or hate it with resppects. And for stickey bolts. I have found that a little man handling is all it needs. Rember it was desined for un educated farm pesents to use with miminal to no training. In combat conditions. Not for target compuction or hunting game very tipical of russian engenering. Only refined where it needed to be.
