I met my dad at the shooting range this morning and he brought 2 riffles. An SKS and a 30/40 craig. I love both guns, but want to talk about the 30/40. Springfield Armory knew what they were doind, thats for sure. Solid metal! It felt so solid in my hands. This was my firt time shooting the 30/40 and I LOVE that gun. After all these years, still dead accurate. Does anyone know how that gun came about? Was is the main riffle issued in WWI? Was it strickly sniper? Can you find them for sale today? Anyone have a 30/40 craig story? Just intrested to learn and hear more about the gun.
