Finally, it has happened. I have been searching and searching. This is one that I have been waiting for for a long time. I was fortunate enough to find a seller, and I pulled the trigger. I will let the pics speak.

[SA] T Finn sling?


Finn stamped yardage.


Finn line out. Circle C for Chatellerault.


Bore looks great, but has about an inch counterbore.










Sestroryetsk stamp.


Sestroryetsk on bolt head too.


Circle C for Chatellerault


Remington mag/trigger guard.




Stock cartouche worn and unreadable.


Finnish "S" stock stamp and number. Civil Guard property.




Correction: Inspector's "C" stamp. It is not a Serbian property stamp.


Finnish "D" stamp.

Well, for me it's right now the find of a lifetime. So I am pretty stoked about it, in case you couldn't tell ;)

Hey IC, I'll be completely honest with you about it, I don't yet have a mosin ( I knnow gandog, I know, lol) and I don't know that much at all and all I know or have learned has been from you guys here at G&G.

That said, I'm happy you found what to me, to you seems to be your holy grail of Mosins...CONGRATS! It looks great and seems to have a lot of character.


And again, I know gandog, I know... lmao

I'm still wondering why you hang out around here if you refuse to get that Mosin.

Maybe it is because we are a heck of a lot more fun than the guys who hang in the powder keg!

Thanks guys! I guess this will have to suffice until I save up enough, then find the 1895 Winchester that was made for the Russians.

Nice rifle IC. Very old, rare, and with quite a history. I like it.
