Nice, where did you get it?

Those arsenal tags look familiar, hanging on some of my M39's, get them from a fellow back east?

stock photo from Pat Burns, gunsnammo.com. Like a 91/30 on steroids WITH junk in the trunk. Triggers like breaking glass instead of gravel driveway. Nice rifle.

Nice M39 and an antique to boot! Be careful when you disassemble it for cleaning, try to lift the action out of the stock and not the stock from the action. Those wacky Finns shimmed many of the actions in the stock and you don't want the shims falling out and not know where they came from.

She (Pat Burns) has an awesome selection of rifles on her website. I got a 1944 Sako built on an 1899 Izhevsk receiver from gunsnammo.com. I agree, the thing is built like a tank. Feels much more substantial than a 91/30 and really nice to shoot, too.

I've read that the Burns cornered the market by buying up all of the Finnish rifles and subsequently raised the prices. I've also heard that they owe a bit of money to the owner of Gunboards for advertising space they never paid for. Only place to get a nice selection of Finnish rifles, however.
