    If it was good enough for Alvin York, it's good enough for me!

    I wish the rear sight was windage adjustable.

    after buying mainly european milsurp, I find it odd America didn't put cleaning rods in their rifles

    given usually they are not long enough to clean the barrel anyways, but still

    That is one of my favorite milsurp bolt-action rifles.

    IIRC, up until the Garand, pull through cleaning kits are stored in the butt along with the oiler.

    It would be nice, but it's not really necessary for me anyway. The rifle is dead center for me. They knew how to put them together back then...
