I would like to see a picture of the $2K Mosin. Sounds special.
I do not know if it is 'special' (as you say) or not .....

I don't know jack about Mosins ..... He is a very knowledgeable individual with regards to Mosins ... I do know that ...

I therefore just go by what "HE" said about it and what he offered .... I doubt he would make an offer like that if it was only worth $19.95

I have seen other's similiar to mine posted out there and they were more than that ... depending upon arsenal markings, receiver types, ruskie scopes and all that other mumbo jumbo ...

Like I said .. I don't know jack ... just going by what the "so called more knowledgeables than I" state ...

Maybe it's only worth $29.95 to some ... he said otherwise and he knows much more than I ever will about Mosins.

It's in a friends safe ... when I get time I'll see what I can come up with as far as pics ...

Talking ;) Get those pictures up

It just sounded like an interesting rifle but if you don't know jack I'll give you $50 sight unseen, LOL.

I would still like to see it some time.

This is my M39 Carbine Scout Rifle

The Finn M-39 is one Great rifle. Some people may not like my rifle, but I Love her. I took a 1970 M39 cut 4 " off the barrel (to a 23" barrel)and 4" off the stock. The barrel was milled down to accept the front sight and the front sight blade was replaced with an 8.7 blade. I mounted a Danl Labtec mount that accommodates a weaver mount. As can be seen by the 2 targets accuracy is not a problem. I know there are people that don't believe in changing the rifle, but this is the rifle I wanted. The target with 2 holes is 100 yds and the 3 hole target is at 200 yds.

I remember when they first started coming in to this country and AIM had them for $70.
The M39 is my favorite of the Mosins I have.
All but one have a pre-1899 receiver.

You'll notice when you take the action out of the stock, they put thin metal shims in it to tune the accuracy.

The Finns gave the Russians a very bad time with those rifles during the Winter War, especially Simo Hayha!

Thanks from Kilo Sierra

Simo Hayha used a M28, not a M39 shooting the D166 200gr. bullet. With only iron sights. His other weapon of choice was the Suomi M-31 9mm.

I have a buddy thats into all things Russian, try a I might, I can't get him into anything else. One day we were in a gunshop that had a Fin Match rifle that I was interested in it had the prettest oversized Burch stock I have seen on any rifle. Not knowing anything about them I passed on it. But I did show it too him, and he snatched it out of my hand and on lay-o-way it went.

Fast foward a few weeks latter we meet up at the range for some shooting, he pulls it out all cleaned up and says lets see what it can do, at 100yd we fired some light ball 150gr? they hit a bit high but the shot cluster was super tight the recoil was just a little stuff. Then he came out with some heavy Russian or Yugoslavian ball 196gr? and at 100yds it was stacking them one on top of the other I was very surprised bolt lift felt slick and smooth unlike any Mosin I have fired before.

We moved out too the 600yds line, George isn't a good mid-range shooter so he pulled butts and I fired first. I was very surprised again the light ball was a waist of time but the heavy ball worked well, I think I fired a low 90 something out of 100 the X-count was nothing to brag about but it shot well. George turned in a low 80 something and a X or two with cheap mil-surp ammo.

It is my understanding after alittle digging around that the Finnish made rifles are the best of the breed, where the Russian rifle bores can and do run up to .312 the Finnish rifles are closer too .308 and this accounts for there better than average accuracy and why they held so many long range records.

I made George a offer too buy the rifle but he won't cut it loose, I remind him I spotted it first without any luck.

imo the M39 has the best barrel profile ever developed. i have not encountered any other rifle as good at holding zero when fired a lot.

i ran 60 rounds through my M39 one afternoon, running it as fast as i could load, aim and fire at a 4" AR500 steel popper at 100 yards. there was almost no change in poi, but i did knock the top off the popper that day iirc!
