Actually quite the opposite.
It's a unique part of history; they are allowing the vintage sniper competitions to be affordable to regular guys without drilling into an otherwise perfect receiver, and most are not destroyed. I have seen very few that could not be safely activated; clearly some are more work (now) than reasonable, but most just take some time and patience.

At the end of the war they put these to good use instead of destroying them.
Here's a thread about one I recently acquired.
I have maybe an hour or two in the grinding and dressing required; I can send mine off for a barrel whenever I get that lined up. The barrel is free and I have completed all the other work myself, easily.

Well heck, why not. I just ordered another one. A friend told me he had a stockpile of new in wrap barrels, so I figured I might as well see if my luck holds out...

Well, not near as lucky with $100 drill rifle #2. Big ol’ weld on the cutoff, weld that goes onto the top of the front ring of the receiver. On initial inspection, I thought the stock had a crack on the right side that was flexing open and therefor repairable. However, on disassembly, the stock came apart in two pieces. On the good side, it came with a fairly decent SC bottom metal. I’ll get the receiver ready, doubt I’ll try to do much with the stock other than use it to repair a duffel cut stock.

I’m not as worried about the weld. I can fix that, even if I have to TIG a bit. I was, however, annoyed that the stock was not just cracked, but rather broken in half...

Well got the stock cleaned up. I bought some driver bits to take the stock reinforcing bolt out but they don't fit. I will make one out of a screwdriver tomorrow. Then I will epoxy the stock up. I think I can save it. Still need a few small parts and a barrel.
