That is a good start.

Here are mine:

Tula Ordnance from 1896, FA stamped.

Tikka M27's:

Early Infantry model from 1931

Later model Ski-trooper from 1938.

Just have one:



A 1941 M39 (A birthday present from my son a couple of years ago)

I did a little testing - Finn M39 vs Mosin 91-30, here's the results:

The four of them look very nice hanging on the wall.

Here's some shooting I did with the M39 in the first post.

10 shot group @ 100 yards, first 5 after the cold bore shot was a good group, and then I ruined it by rushing through the rest of the the shots. The high right shot was the cold bore shot. I'd say this is a MOA gun with the right shooter and ammo.

Ahhh!! SVT more wood!

They are all beautiful, especially that bottom rifle.
Is it just the pics or is there something on the muzzle?

Added a new M91 to the fold. Captured Westinghouse. Reciever, barrel and bolt (for the most part) are all Westinghouse. Some interesting machine marks on the barrel shank there.

I'm really happy with the external condition of my M28/30 but the bore isn't nearly as nice as some of my other Finn's, slugs at .310, I hope she's still a shooter. No D mark and no civil guard markings. I was thinking about selling this one but these rifles seem to be fairly scarce so I've decide to keep her for now.

I got lucky on this M28. With the exception of a worn screw on the rear band I think this is a excellent example of an M28. Everything else meets or exceeds my expecations. I have only seen a few of these in person and none of them were in better condition. Shoot's decent with milsurp but I think I'll be able to improve the grouping once I get some reloads together and fix the windage. Last picture is 5 shots at 100yds with Czech Milsurp. Now if I can only talk Emdawg into trading me his M27 my Finn collection would be complete enough for my liking. Feedback on either rifle's appreciated as I don't know much about some of the markings. For example, the stock marking inside the M28/30, the 11 on the bottom of the M28 barrel, and the reason why there's no civil gaurd marking on the M28/30.

Nice Finns!!

That's a nice looking 28-30 for sure. It's interesting that you are asking about that marking in the stock, as it is one of the things I am researching and tracking, hoping to find an answer or a pattern to it some day and maybe an explanation. I have quite a few 28-30s with a similar number stamped in there, always 2 consecutive numbers in the teens or 20s, so it must be a measurement or a date? Who knows.

There are quite a few 28-30s without CG district markings and many guesses as to what it means. I've heard it suggested that they were held in storage until the wars broke out and then shipped quickly out to the units and they never got marked. I've also seen it said that they were issued to the army instead of CG, but I've never seen anything to back this up so it's probably just a guess.

Steve,

I remember when you picked up one of those Liege proofed M91s, that was a hell of a score.

I assume you have a typo there on your Tikka M91, you are listing it as an M24

Yep...should have said M91 rather than M24.
