I'm taking mine back to the range later this week, so I'll let it stay dirty for a bit longer

FordPerfects Mosins must have had 5 gal. when he got them. 1/2in thick all over.
Disliked Mosins every since! What a piece of krap.

Did not go to the range today, was pressed for time, early tomorrow for sure if FordPerfect can get away from the coffee pot.

FordPerfect's Garand shoots great, nice tight groups with old eyes an iron sights. Only shot it at 100 yds. Hard to see small target at that range. Used old Korean ammo that was very dirty. I was impressed. Think he needs to trade it off!
