Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Finn captured original matching 91/30

#1 Post by Miller Tyme » Fri Nov 17, 2017 8:31 pm

I found this one on Gunbroker a while back and it flew under the radar. It is a truely unrefurbed, all stamped matching, all Izhevsk parts Finn Captured 91/30. We all know how hard it is to find any original,stamped matching Russian 91/30, well finding a Finn is next to impossible, and except for the [SA] stamp it is exactly how it was when it left Izhevsk back in 1938.

Damn now that is cool, guess it pays to look at every auction to see what might be mislabeled etc. Great catch!

That is a mighty fine example! Original rifles are rare.

It looks like a beautiful rifle in its original condition. How about numbering the stock? Even if there are no matching numbers, it's a wonderful piece. Wonderful white metal parts with exactly right blueing. Don't touch and clean it. You can be happy.
