Hi All,
I picked this up recently and wanted to get an idea of what I had. I know the pictures suck but its the best I could do witg the cell.

It looks like a Hex 1914 Finnish M91 or M24. I'm really not sure though. All numbers match and it has a 2 piece stock. Hell, it could not be finnish for all I know. Bought it because I saw the rear sight and knew it was something different.

Thoughts?

I know M91s (US made) alittle. Looks like a M91 to me. Go to 7.62x54r.net to see all variations. Lot's of good info one Gunboards forum too.

What you have is an Izhevsk M91. There is nothing Finnish about your rifle (normally you would see an SA mark on the barrel shank if it was Finnish). Nonetheless, you have a nice looking Russian rifle made at the start of the WW1 era. The old imperial marks were ground off by its Soviet owners and I bet it was used during WW2.
