Well, I have the hots to get a M39 to go with my 91/30 sniper and M44 carbine..what do all of you that own them like about them over say a regular 91/30? Better sights? better barrel? smoother action? Give us the low down:)

M39 as compared with a M91/30:

Better sights
More accurate
A bolt that closes without the use of a hammer

Besides all of the rational and logical points- better barrel, better sights,better trigger, heavier spring - I have no way to tell you about their allure. Maybe it is the wood. Maybe it's the history.

Better sights, better trigger, great history.

The action is the same as the M91.

That is one gorgeous rifle. These rifles are accurate, have a great trigger, comfortable to shoot. Truly the best Mosin ever built. You'll buy more.
Ask me how I know.

thanks Bingo.....Ah yes the dreaded mosinitis cough cough-spend-money :) This will be the 5th mosin I have ever purchased....but by all accounts the most refined/perfected of the breed. Im looking forward to it....

Everybody feel free to throw some pic's of your Finnish mosins on here!

ya know I had looked at Pat Burns list of Finn Mosins for sale for years, countless beautiful examples of just about every variation....I really feel like kicking myself for not ever ordering one before (one, yeah right..ok, several) I know one day she is going to run out. As what she has is the inventory of a defunct wholesaler..finite number.

1895 Tula reciever (if I recall - I've not pulled the stock to check yet) and a 1941 Sako re-work.

The Finn stocks are much nicer than the Russian in my opinion and the trigger is simply stunning for a battle rifle. Can't wait to shoot it!

Cheers,
Oly

What I like about mine is that it is the tightest shooter out of my 10 Mosin Nagants.

I have a tiger stripe stock Sako M-39. It's by far my favorite Mosin. It feels well balanced, solid, and it's accurate!
