Finnish Mosin Nagant OK to shoot? Longevity of M39?
I'm extremely interested in purchasing a Finnish Mosin Nagant, either M39 or preferably a M28/30 (if I can find one). I've been corresponding with a guy that has one for sale and it appears that there is pitting near the chamber. .I wanted to know if the gun was alright to shoot and if it could have the longevity that I was looking for (thousands of rounds fired). The pics are included below.
Also, if anyone has a M39 or M28/30 for sale, or know of one that could be promising as a weekend shooter, please let me know!
