Finland declared independence from Russia in 1917. Taking advantage of the revolutionary environment in Russia at the time, the Finnish White Guards expelled all communist. The armories left behind became the property of the new Finnish Republic. The Russian Model 1891 became the standard issue to Finnish troops. These rifles were not to the specifications required by the Finnish army so the Finnish m/39 was rebuilt upon Russian Model 1891 receivers and included new barrels, sights, and stocks.
After the Winter and Continuance wars the Finn's had a new influx of Russian Model 1891/30 and never had to manufacture receivers.
This Finnish m/39 Mosin-Nagant is the one of the finest examples of the Mosin Nagant rifle. Incredible feats of accuracy with these rifles will make any shooter a true believer.
