Had this for quite a while. It's more like a freak production guessing that since all other variation of Mosin originally came from M91 receiver that the Fins most likely didn't bother to alter any other parts and just configure it to a M39 model.

This is my first post at this forum and not exactly sure if this would work

:D show off your pretty rifle

It's interesting because they retained the original bore instead of machining a new barrel like every other M39 I've seen

^^ That one's New England Westinghouse, not Remington. Is yours made in 1915?

To the OP, you have a cool M39 there. If you ever decide to let go of it, let me know, I'll buy it.

Of course. I'm looking for a Remington myself. I have one which might've been made by Remington, but the Finns ground off the markings from the top of the receiver. I'm looking for one with markings intact :(

Wait a minute.......there could be no Remington M39. There could be a Remingtom M91, but the definition of an M39 is an MN91 that has been rebarreled. The Remington marks should be in the receiver, not the barrel of an M39.

What ever it is or suppose to be, it is nice nonetheless.

What stock is on it, a pre, a wartime or post? Or take a pic of it upside down with the belly of the stock facing up and we can tell you.

Of Course Remington never made MN M39, this is just one of the odd variant of M39.

"There are basically five standard markings of arsenal production on the m/39 rifles barrels, the SAKO, Valmet (VKT) and Tikkakoski marked barrels as well as the Belgian "B" marked barrels and the non maker marked barrels of the late 1960ís and 1970 produced guns. There are also some very unusual marked barrels that are non standard in their pattern such as m/39ís using converted barrels from Russian produced weapons as well as Remington and Westinghouse marked barrels." Mosin-nagant.net, Finnish area, M39.

Not all M39 came from M91 receiver there are also that originated from M91/30, hence for some known M39 with a round receivers instead of the traditional hexagonal type.

"What ever it is or suppose to be, it is nice nonetheless.

It's on a post war stock as most of these unusual variants were made/assembled.
