some key tid bits

It will be the longest rifle on your rack
If the bore is good or better, then it may end up as one of your best shooters (not as good as a K31, but close)

The bore is going to be tighter than a standard Russian rifle. This is good if you are already loading .308/7.62 nato, or 7.5 swiss. You can use the same .308 bullets unlike the loose Russian bores that seem to like .310-.312 bullets.

The stock is arctic birch. Wipe it off with a murphys oil soap and water mix to get the dirt off, and LEAVE IT ALONE. Do not go putting BLO or any other concoction on it. It has lasted 50-75 years as is, the only thing you will do it lower the rifles value.

Buy one. My Finn M91 is my favorite mosin, and comes out to the range regularly.

Check the gunboard forums, there is a guy with one for 160 shipped right now. (it has a nice VKT barrel) It is missing the handguard, but they can be picked up for 30-40 dollars.

The "B" barreled Finn is the most accurate according to most experts. Barrels were made in Belgium for the Finns. If you are thinking of sporterizing this then please don't buy it, they are some of the best collectible Mosin's there ever were and would be a shame for it to be under appreciated and bastardized

The B barrel Finn. is a beautiful and accurate riffle. As Zer0DazE and Krippp have said clean her up a bit but do NOT re-finish and she sure to last another 50 to 75 years

Thank you guys for the info. And, Kripp, As for sporterizing, bastardizing, and bubbadizing, that is not me. I appreciate a rifle for what it is and in the end, could not bring myself to modify even a modern rifle. I happened to luck into a 1932 tula hex with a flawless bore that is extremely accurate. I will not touch that riflewith even a screwdriver if I don't have to. it rests on the hand quite comfortably and shoulders better than many other rifles I have fired. I bought it as a set with an m44 that was completley flawless. I got the both of them for 139. I saw this and was instantly in love. Thank you once again for the info.
