  1. No I do not. Only rifles and carbines from antique to WW2.
  2. I belong to a shooting club here and each month we have what we call a Mauser shoot. This is a 50 meter shoot using WW 2 iron sight rifles and a target with the 9 ring being about 4" in dia. . I am in no way a sharp shooter but standing and shooting off hand using my M91/38 Carcano in 6.5 mm I was able to get a 186 out of a possible 200 point score. Some M38 were made in 7.35 mm but not many. The rest were fit with cut down M91 barrels which are 6.5 mm and have a twist gain rifling, while the rest were fit with a new 6.5 mm standard twist barrels and named M91/38. The cut down twist gain barrels have horrible accuracy while the new standard twist barrels are very accurate. If a 60+ year old amateur can shoot a 186 at 50 meter a sniper quality marksman at less than 100 yards with the same gun would have no problem hitting a 6" target. Moving away is the easiest kind of shot from an elevated position. I speak from 40 plus years of upland game, waterfowl and deer hunting experience.
