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.

Finnish Westinghouse M91

#1 Post by Ghostrider5211 » Tue Jul 17, 2018 10:44 pm

This is another rifle I found last month or so. It came into the local gun shop on consignment. I am glad I picked it up. It's a Westinghouse M91, restocked by the Finns, but no Finnish SA marks on the rifle receiver. The sights haven't been updated or slashed and restamped with the different range numbers on them. Barrel has seen better days but has at least very visible grooves and lands. It should make a great shooter.

Very nice find - that's definitely one rifle that I'd like to find and add to my own collection some day.

Does yours have tiny screws at the bands? Odd, I do not see two circles on the faint cartouche? How matching is it part wise? What year is that one? Is it lacking an import mark? Mine has one on the barrel :snooty:
