Anyone ever tried it?
I used one in a match in Mississippi in May, 2012. A match for milsurp bolt action rifles made before 1945 only, and all shooting from prone from 200, 300 and 600 yards.
The M39 has only one inch sling swivels, I modified a USGI sling clip to attach to the swivel and used a USGI web sling to sling up.
I have toyed with the idea of shooting an M39 just for fun in XTC High Power, but I keep on grabbing my match LRB M14 for that! I believe if you practice enough, you could do pretty good with one, but I would steer more to shooting one in a Mid Range Prone match, 600 yards, with match ammo, you'll hit the black every time!
Oh yeah, I won that Milsurp match in Mississippi, using that M39 against all of those Mosin Nagants, Mausers, K31's, etc, the M39 completely outclassed them all. The M39 is one heck of a rifle!
