Maybe more for me. Miller Tyme has a, "real", actual war time scope like the best snipers used. I've got one about like the guy in the video. And... as I remember... I had a hard time zeroing the scope to start with and at 100 yards it was no better than iron sights. The chances of hitting a target at 300 yards, unless a substantially large, big as a small car size, would have been problematic at best.

I have 2 of these, ( one is pristine) but would love to see that rifle up close, if it is indeed a Hungarian M52 it could help to resolve a debate on another forum I am on. The stock isn't Hungarian, it lacks the "02" cartouche on the r/h side of the butt stock. I believe the barrel bands are Izhevsk as the rear band looks to be marked with a triangle rather than an "02". There are a dozen or so M48's ( Hungarian 91/30's) that have surfaced in the past 5 years mixed in with crates of Russian refurbs. It is thought they might have been some of the weapons taken from people involved in the 1956 Hungarian Revolt, and ended up in Russia where they where thrown into the refurb system.

Thanks for posting
