Well, the Nagant bug bit again. I took my New England Firearms 20guage single shot shotgun and the old Polish Nagant (the one with the crooked sight) and traded for a M39. The barrel was made in 1941, but the receiver from the M91 reads "1900r" on the tang. Smooth trigger pull. My favorite thing about it is the stock, its painted (i think thats paint?) a silky smooth feeling black. Brand New Bore pretty much too! All and all since I had $120 in my other two guns and he wanted $150 for this one I think I did good, what do y'all think?
