    You just can't put a good rifle down and thats the truth of it.

    Once they took that damn Unertl off those rifles and put a decent optic on them there is nothing wrong with them. Built like a tractor and accurate, perfect!

    I'm guessing you refer to the one that would melt the reticle pattern in the hot sun?

    Yes, that one. Also the one with a BDC turret and fixed parallax adjustment. Not conducive to good accurate long distance shot placement........

    It was the world standard in the early 80's, not so much now.

    Those rifles with a Schmidt and Bender are fine and should be in every INF unit both reg and reserve.

    They are here, we own them (Free), and they work and are user resistant to damage.

    We first saw them in Gagetown in '93 and the sniper course had those problems in the summer sun...just what you wanted.
