Does anybody know if there were ever models of these rifles made with adjustable sights,better triggers,or heavy barrels for competitive shooting?
I have an M-39 that is a very good shooter,and I couldn't help but wonder if Finland[or any other nation for that matter] had ever produced any target rifles built on Mosin receivers.

Last week or so, someone on Gunbords posted lots of pic's of one he picked up. It was a Finn target rifle.

The stocks were hand made by the Finns for each rifle.

Candyman is correct; the Finns built a lot of nice match rifles from ones that had diopter sights on 28/30s to custom built guns. I have a friend in Finland that has a 10 of these.

do you really think the finns can be called bubbahs? i mean maybe the finn military can't really be called bubbbah, they made some mighty fine rifles out of an already fine rifle

I don't consider it to be a bubba job.I'd modify a rough old 91/30 that I have TODAY if I could make it look/shoot like that! 8)

Relax guys !! I was Joking , life is to short to get all that worked up .. No one and I mean no one has more respect for these rifles and the russians and finns history than I do ( well except for about a 1,000 other collectors on here)and I will probably end up with one in my collection :mrgreen: :thumb:

Before the olympics went all gay and wimpy, the service rifle of each country, is what was used for shooting during the cross country skiing event. Unlike the .22's they use now.

And yes the comblock countries used Target grade Mosin Nagants.
