    If you look closely at the town scenes near the end of the movie,

    isn't the American sniper using a 91/30 with a round receiver,

    a turned-down bolt, and the sniper scope?:eek:

    yup. they used the mosin because they could not locate a springfield sniper. the mosin was readily available and had the general look so they used it

    IIRC the "A3-04"(army design altered 03 sniper design) had

    a laundry list of issues, and was never officially

    issued for military use.

    Most 03s adapted for sniping to that point just had

    whatever scope was handy to the

    shooter at the time...:confused:

    Really, what was your first clue?

    Wait a minute you really don't think Gore invented the Internet do you?

    No, the self inflicted orgasm. He and John Kerry were war heroes together. They spent many nights inflicting each other. ;) Sometimes Al would scratch, so John Got a purple heart. The End.
