7.62X53R shooters?

I found some neat Christmas gifts for $79 with bayonets and all the gear. Ammo pouch, sling and cleaning kit. Ishvesk and a Tula in laminated stocks.



...Cheers...

R guns?

Just curious who the distributor was. Those look nicer than my M44 from R-Guns, though I'm very pleased with the M44 and the 7.62x54R cartridge (or 7.62x53R if your Finnish).

Nice pictures.

I had the chance to see a nice colletion of M27, M28, Finn 91/30's and M39's last week. The quality was fantastic in both the wood and action, 99%+ stuff. Made my Finn's look like crapo.

The M39's?

I think it was SOG in the mid 90's for $69. I think I bought six around the holiday's to swap out the triggers and gifted or sold them later.

..............

I received this in 1989 or 1990. Still one of my favorite rifles.

Cheers

Never let it be said that you can't find any good deals at Cabela's on milsurps. Especially if they mis-identify their own merchandise.

On a recent trip through Nevada, stopped at the Reno's Cabela's and found this Finnish Model 27. It bore a tag that identified it as a Mosin Nagant 1891 and a price of 159.99. Tikka, dated 1934

Wow!

I saw an M27 that was so sweet. Makes me regret quiting and reducing collecting and the collection.

Thaks for sharing.

.....Cheers....

Possibly a dumb question.

Can you fire 7.62x54R in these -53R rifles?

Sure, just take a little sandpaper to them. :-)

Yep, the fins call it 53mm, the russians 54mm. Same round

Almost the same ound. The Finn round uses a better bullet

and the powder is higher quality with less smoke.
