Mosin Lovers, Help Again!

  1. The **** gun shop keeps getting pretty things!!

    So, today I went in and this morning they got in a Finnish original 1891 mosin with "B barrel", and a M39 that is a "B barrel".
    Both are 1942 model, both are in very good condition. Bores are bright, and not worn very badly.
    Both have all matching numbers minus the floorplate and butt plates.
    Both will be $289...
     
  2. I think you should buy both! After all, the economy needs stimulated!

    whats the "B" barrel mean?

    I would snap up Finnish Mosins given the chance though.

  4. It did not study enough to get an "A" on the factory test!

    I thought they marked those with a "2" not a "B"?

    B is a Belgian barrel. Some of the metal should have a "plum" color blue.
    acarp- Did you mean a M91/30?
     
  7. Hey Steve, I think this one is an actual Finnish '91.
    I was reading up on 7.62x54r.net and came across this page Finnish M91
    That is exactly the rifle. It just has the '42 Finn B barrel, so I guess they used an old Russian '91 and a new Belgian barrel.
    I hope this doesn't mean I have to buy another gun...:196:

    1) buy the M39.
    2) I would buy the M91 if I could verify the stampings on the barrel. I would look for a VKT or an SA stamp.

    Rich- I wasn't worried about the M39.
    acarp- I'd buy both if you can afford it. If not, def get the M39.
