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.

My Finn M-39

Bought this a while ago from Classic. It was one of their "cracked" stock guns:

It was built on an Izhevsk 1900 dated hex receiver. For a $300 M39 I think I did great - numbers matching rifle.

No. There is a small crack in the hand grip and on the stock. Its clearly obvious that the seam is where the stock parts were assembled!

I went thru my rifles and I have one like yours and is 400 numbers off serial number . It has a repaired crack near the trigger and a vertical seem maybe forward a little.

I don't think that cracked rifle is up to your standards, you need to sell me that one so I can put it with my '42 and '44 Sako's and have a set. All joking aside that's a nice rifle, one of my favorites in the entire Milsurp world. I even bought a house with birch flooring in it so I could me reminded of the Finn's every day.
