This rifle was not a piece of history, it was a piece of scrap. It had a junk barrel, missing handguard, cracked buttstock, and one missing barrel band. It is not in the original caliber now, and is a completely different rifle now. If it was serviceable, I never would have used the action.
As for originals, I have M91's, dragoons, M91/30's, M91/59's, M44's, M38's...and that's just Russians. My real passion is for the rifles of my ancestral homeland, Finland.
