Repro 42 VKT M39 SOV

Post by Miller Tyme »

Some firearms are just unattainable to most collectors no matter how much you may wish otherwise, and this is one of them. I have always liked the Finnish M39 SOV's and M39/43's, but with less than 200 of the SOV's and 500 of the M43's having ever been produced the odds of ever acquiring one was zip.

Luckily you can still buy the parts to make a reproduction SOV so my plans where to build one, that is until this one popped up for sale a couple of weeks ago.

Its a 42 VKT M39 (the correct year for the SOV) with an accumounts base, mount, and scope set up. The setup is pretty nice with the only issue being the turret locations on the Accumount scope being to far back the scope compared to the originals. Since the SOV came with either a PE or PEM scopes, and originals are still reasonable I plan on finding a nice one to put on it and keep the accumounts for another project.

They just sold a M/39-43 and SOV at auction in Finland. Hammer Price was 2,500€ and 2,700€ + 13% Buyers premium. Plus 50€ Finnish license fee per rifle plus another $1,000 to bring them both here. Both rifles were bought by known Finnish Collectors. Final price about $4,000 each. I'm guessing repro is significantly less? Which by the way looks nice just hope it didn't cost anywhere near the real thing.

Yeah I would say $600 is cheap enough.
