Years ago, my friend and I both purchased Turkish, 8 X 57 mm long rifles in a gun shop that had a large number of them.
We were able to pick through 30 - 40 rifles and pick the very best pair of rifles. The bores in the two rifles that we picked that day looked to be 99% +.
My friend has a pace maker and his Dr. doesn't like him shooting rifles that have recoil like the 8 X 57 mm.
So, ..........I bought his rifle a few days ago and now I have two of them.
I've shot this one that you see in the photos below already....." IT IS A SHOOTER ! "
By the way, guess what we paid for the rifles ?
Here is a couple of pics of my Turk 8 X 57 mm rifle that I bought that day , many yrs ago. It is a great shooter also. Very clean and very nice bore also :
