rifles used to be better made in russia, didn't they? Thicker barrels, more reliable mechanisms? and got a better answer
If the steel is high quality, you can make a thinner barrel out of it, there's nothing wrong with that. But is that hardly the case with Chinese and Turkish chippy stuff?

That's a thing. My grandfather worked at the armory. Izhmash. Made it for himself. Nice buttstock, engraved barrel. Fighting is awesome. 1967. That's the kind of crap they make nowadays. Maybe I'm wrong. Been to Abkhazia. They also complain about modern smoothbore guns. The action's not what it used to be. But. But. The rifled weapon is good.
The rifle industry is in the dumps! Yes, before 1958, there were very high quality double barrel Tula rifles, which they use to this day. Yes, the brands are not the same, and workers hate their labor and low income, and then those who made them at TOZ were proud of their work and were highly paid employees, the elite workers!
