Default Info on PU sniper I bought plz!

Bought a Mosin PU sniper that I was told is a reproduction. Metal and bore are in excellent condition. Has a laminate stock that is fairly rough but not to bad. Shoots great taking in to consideration the heavy trigger. It has a 1943 date on it so I am wondering if maybe this was an ex sniper rifle IO added a scope and mount to or if they drilled and tapped the receiver themselves. Any info on this rifle is much appreciated as I am new to these.

Real snipers have smooth crisp triggers. You already answered you own question. Also, the lens cap threaded through the mont is a sure sign of a repro.

Real snipers have the receiver machined smooth also. They don't look rough like yours.

The turret screws are flat meaning the scope is a repro as well. An authentic scope has mushroom shaped screws in the turrets
