    A buddy of mine told me about an old WWII gun that he had gotten from a dead uncle. He asked if I knew anything about old guns and I told him that I knew Quite a bit about WWII Guns but I need to see what it was he was talking about, A few days later, He brought it over and gave it too me. It is a Beautiful Finnish M91. I now have two...
    The bore is exellent it has the small front sight and the earrrrly style Bayonet.
    it has a St alband vermont stamp so it is an recient import (since 1985)
    Most of the markings are ground off prior to the reblueing when the gun was arsenel refinished.
    the thing is a very nice piece with sling.
    I havent shot it yet, ill let everyone know how it shoots. This guy did not know I am a Mosin Nagant guy, Sometimes Fate just steps in.

    Give it time and sooner or later they will. Either give them to you or give you such a great price it is like giving it away.

    Don't feel bad. When my brother got his first gun, a GLOCK 9mm, my dad gave him an old .38 special that belonged to some police chief here in NM. What has he given me? Nothing.

    You need to get yourself right down to the Third Baptist Church and send a thank-you up to The Man... That's really great!!!

    If that's what it takes, with my luck ATF is looking for me to take away guns I haven't even bought yet!

    When I first started reading about Mosins here, and on other sights, I had planned on collecting WWII Sniper Rifles. I went to a gun shop, and looky here! A M/N PU Sniper! My first one! When I started looking at the prices for th rest of them, that dream died, LOL !! I've got a few more Mosins now, but not any more WWII Snipers.
