I have personally shot 3 different samples of this rifle . I was lucky to get 2 shots on the same target at 100 yards . I really don't think, Mr. Oswald was the Shooter of our President . Was he involved yes , did he fire 3 shots and score one head shot at a moving target with one of the rifles , I really do not think it is humanly possible . There are a few battle rifles capable of this feat but this isn't one of them .
Have shot a couple of these, and they are about on par with many surplus rifles - 4-5" groups off a bench at 100 yards. Remember, Dealey Plaza is pretty small and Oswald's longest shot was about 80 yards away - with a 4X scope. He already had one chambered, so he actually had about 3 seconds between shots, not less than 2. And if you look at the size of his "group" on Kennedy, he managed about a one FOOT group at between 50 and 80 yards, not exactly stellar accuracy. He had had some training, whether he was an expert or not. I normally find the single shooter theory substantially more believable than the various second/third shooter theories, myself, but to each his own.
