Finn Round reciever B-Barrel M91

Post by Miller Tyme »

This is a 42 Finn B-Barrel M91 built on a round receiver in a 2 piece Finn stock. The rifle barrel has the VKT proof stamp and a pristine bore. The Finns seemed to prefer Hex receivers over round recievers on almost all of there rifles with the exception being the M30's, but even then they used a fair number of the hex receivers. With no more than a dozen of these floating around the states I figured it would make a fine edition to my collection.

Very nice, I bought my round receiver B barrel off a Gunboards member for much the same reasons. You rarely see these. Does yours have a M27 trigger group? Mine does as do 3 others I've seen pictures of. I wonder if was standard in these builds or just happened to be what was available at the time.

Finland is a small country with limited resources and capital. They made use of whatever they had to arm their troops. They also did a fine job of building accurate rifles. I've found that practically any Finnish rifle will outshoot a comparable Moisin-Nagant rifle from anywhere else; assuming it's in good condition.
Arguing with someone who denounces reason is like administering medicine to a corpse.

This fine example was saved by me on the Wayback Machine and all photos remain intact: see:

To old to fight and to old to run, a Jar head will just shoot and be done with you.
