    Pending divorce is forcing a sale so check my posts for other items.

    This Mosin is a Finnish M-39 in nice shape and a great shooter. This is the most accurate Mosin-Nagant pattern rifle of the 4 I own and I hate to cut it loose. Mag floorplate and butt plate are scrubbed, rifle and bolt are mis-matched. Bore is shiny and the action as well as trigger are smooth.

    Asking $425

    No clue, don't want to pull it and have the cork disintegrate.

    Simo Hayha used a similar rifle. He was known as the White Death during WW2. Over 500 confirmed kills (400 for Vasily Zaytsev).

    Yup, and Haÿhä (I think I got the oomlats right) used no scope, just open sights. The man was an amazing soldier.

    Actually he had over 700 kills, over 500 with a M28 Mosin, the rest with the Suomi 9mm sub-gun.
    All that in about 100 days.

    WW2 Finnish Army issue Puuko. Note the national emblem and the swastika. The Finn swastika has nothing to do with Nazis, and was
    a standard Finn military insignia long before the Nazis existed. Finn aircraft bore the swastika.

    Though interesting to note, the Finnish army during that time received lots of training and support from Nazi Germany. The enemy of my enemy and all that. That's a good looking puuko. Yours?

    Not mine. The support from Germany was mostly during the Continuation War, June 1941 to August 1944.
    Primarily an army in the Lapland region and several Luftwaffe squadrons in the south. That had nothing to
    do with the Finn swastika. After the Soviets settled for 10% of the land a peace agreement was signed, The
    Germans refused to leave Finland and the Finns were compelled to drive them out. The Germans did a total
    scorched earth policy. The upshot was a lot of misery but an outcome unlike any other European nation the
    Reds attacked. The Finns kept their independence and their law. The military successes appear to have made
    the Soviets leery of attempting an occupation. When the Russians vacated East Germany in the after the fall
    of the Soviet empire, many of those troops were sent to the Finnish border.
