View Full Version : M27 (Last purchase for a while)

This is my last gun purchase. I have a M27 already, but could not pass this one up for obvious reasons. This thing has an outstanding bore. It's going to the range this weekend.

Can anyone tell me anything about the marks on the tang. Arsenal?
I know year, but I must be missing something (or going blind from looking at it too long!)

Looks like pre-1928 Izzy or Kovrov.

For one thing it's an antique (1897, pre '98) and can be sold as one w/o FFL in my opinion.

Gorgeous! This is a Finn, correct? I am new to the Mosin world, still learning.

Yes, but it has an unusual stock for a M27.

I noticed you have a ski type bottom swivel. If only you can find the added attachment for the front you'll have a fully ski type stock.

You probably already knew about, but just in case I'll post what I have. Ignore the sling it's the only thing I have for now.

The ski troopers used the double-slotted stocks IIRC. Not my cup of tea.

Here's mine (yeah, working on getting better pics. Need to find the charger):

The double slot on the rear stack are mostly used primarily on M28 (but also used, but seldom for M27) and doesn't need the front sling attachment. But for the M27 having a heavier stock & which was primarily used by the Finnish army they have that stock swivel like what Dolk have plus the attachment at the front like what I have just shown, unfortunately doesn't really shows a clearer picture.

Here's a link of a clearer picture from the mosinnagant.net site and just scroll down and you'll see the picture of the M27 ski trooper front sling attachment.
