I am selling my 1938 WWII era Mosin Nagant 91/30 PU Sniper rifle

Hi everyone, this here is a beautiful rifle! All serial numbers matching, tons of factory stamps, super clear glass, and a beautiful finish on the stock. This rifle is a beautiful piece of history.

1938 Mosin Nagant 91/30 Izhevsk factory original sniper
The rifle is in fantastic condition, a few scuffs here and there on the stocks finish, but this should be expected on a wartime rifle, no cracks or fractures.
No rust anywhere.
All markings are deep and easy to see.
The crown is in great shape, and the rifling is clean and sharp.
The original PU scope glass is super clear, no hazing or ghosting.
All mechanical parts glide smoothly.
Dead on accurate, this rifle has been range tested, and it is a tack driver for sure.
C.A.I. Import markings

I will let the pictures tell the rest of the story for you, but this is a great chance to get yourself a collectors rifle and a slice of history. I was going to auction the rifle, but I figured I would give some of my fellow pnw's a chance at it first for a fair price.

Any questions, just let me know. Thanks everyone.

Unless you have paperwork stating otherwise, this does not appear to be a completely original PU sniper rifle. Original PU sniper rifles had the scope serial number engraved on the left side of the barrel shank just in front of the receiver. It also appears to be a force match serial number rifle as well. Either way it's a good looking gun. I know some companies like Century would take some regular rifles and add original PU scopes too then to have a PU sniper rifle. I have attached a photo here of my PU to show where the scopes serial number is located on the rifle. This was done during WW2 because scope mounts generally had more precise gunsmithing done to them to fit each rifle, and scopes could be removed with that large knob for whatever reason, cleaning or transport or whatever, and then you'd easily be able to make sure the right scope went back into the right gun. GLWS!

Interesting, I appreciate the information! I was told it was an original snipe rwhen I purchased it, but, I do not have paperwork stating otherwise, and I was not aware all PU Mosin's had the scope number stamped on the receiver. But it was a C.A.I. import, so that may perhaps be the case.. It is interesting to me that it has all the other markings, such as the point of aim proof mark, etc, and as I understood, some mosin's can have struck-thru serials on the magazine baseplate from the factory, but I will defer to your knowledge base on this, you seem to have some better info on this than I, and I wouldn't want to mislead any potential buyers.
Is there a way for me to amend the listing to remove the "factory original" part due to this new information, and I cannot verify it as such?

Beautiful rifle.
CAI was known for putting genuine Russian sniper scopes on non-sniper rifles a number of years ago. There are posts on older forums about this. Personally, without any written proof occupying a specific rifle I always tend to err on assuming that most Mosin Sniper Rifles are not original factory setups. This does not mean they are bad rifles, just not original Russian factory made setups.

"Tula marked Sniper rifles with a large Cyrillic "S P" (early) and "S N" (late) on either side of the top point of the star on the barrel. Izhevsk did not use a similar mark, but did place the serial number of the scope along the woodline of the left side of the barrel. These marks and the plugged mount holes are the easiest way to tell if a rifle is an ex-sniper.

So I checked out the video, my rifle meets all parameters of the video. It doesn't, however, have the side stamped scope #
