    Really nice rifle. The Finns built great Mosins.

    I had a M39 Finn. It was the perfect variant of the family.

    All of my Finns seem like whoever had them was very strict on keeping the bores mirror like

    On the m39 the front sight is also easily adjustable. They are really nice rifles, I wish I kept mine. I recall that it was the most accurate milsurp rifle I owned.

    San Antonio!
    The history of the Finnish Mosin...
    I have a M39 as well, a 1944 SAKO (Suojeluskuntain Ase ja Konepaja Oy) with a "Boxed SA" Suomen Armeija (Finnish Army) property mark...

    It also oddly has Artillerie Zeugs Fabrik (AZF), an Austrian arsenal mark, on it; and just above that, it appears some other marking was removed. The Finns often removed or defaced the Communist hammer and sickle on captured Mosins, so likely that is what was there...

    It's a very solid rifle. Reminds me a bit of a M1 Garand, albeit a bolt action version of one!

    The front in front of the first barrel band reminds me of an m1 garand I really like the straight stocked Sako m39 which I was lucky enough to find.

    I have 2 Finns... an M39 and an M91. Both have pretty special patterned stocks.

    Have a SAKO M39, and an M28. The M28 is a true .308 bore, although the throat can handle .310 bullets as well. Both are great shooters. Wish I had bought Valmet M39 back when they were cheap as well.
