    If it's an original, they go for at least $600. If it's a mock-up, I wouldn't touch it for more than $200.
    See what you can find out about it and get back to us.

    I have the pics forwarded to the experts. The MN site sez the 42s are extremely rare. The 43s are not.

    I think it is a post war remake. All the Russian markings have been removed, but it has several sets of serial numbers. Indecated that it has been reworked.

    I'll let you all know what the experts say.

    Yes D.L.

    The Finnish rebarreled the M39's when they captured them from the Russkies, so that would explain the scrubbed markings. I am sure you will like it very much, whatever you paid for it. They are very accurate rifles.
    I noticed that the receiver is hexagonal. When you get your scope for it and go to install it, check out It has a lot of tips on how to sight it in correctly, and how to shim/grind the mount so it's in proper alignment for the scope.
    If you're looking for a scope for it, try Centerfire Systems at 1-800-950-1231. They have 3 different scopes for the Mosins that fit your mount.

    It's a fake :-(

    The MN Guru said the Fins never made this rifle. The importer did. They took 91/30s and made the M39PU out of them.

    I just don't know if I want to get it now.

    Thanks Calvin, The guy who is selling this has scopes also $50 more.

    Dang it's purdy!
