Finn M39?

saw one at the local gunstore that they took in on trade. asking $259 and this thing looks like a brand new gun. all numbers were matching, no sling or bayonette. going to pick it up tomorrow unless i hear something negative from the experts here.

Yeah, the only negative thing is that you will be committing a robbery at that price.

The Finns were pretty good about refurbishing their guns. You should have a good purchase there if it as you say it is. Forget about a bayonet or sling, you won't need one for the most part. They are accurate, the sights are better than the Russian M91's from which most 39's claim a heritage, and the stocks are fairly strong.

The Doc is out now.

$259 seems to be a very good price B barreled, no maker, and Sky guns seem to bring the best premiums.

Great price on what is probably one of the most accurate surplus rifles out there. You can't beat a Finnish mosin. I have had 6 of these and everyone of them a 1.5 MOA or better shooter. I had to sell of 2 of them and I have regret it ever since.
