Here the story I picked up a M39 Fin rifle, barrel was corroded, and stock was broken so I decided to make a fin sniper/target rifle but only modern.
I contacted Lothar Walther http://www.lothar-walther.de/html/107.php and had them make me a barrel 25.6 inch target 11 degree crown, .310 bore Dia, chambered in original 7.62x54 R, the barrel is long chambered, I thread the barrel to 16 tpi / 60 degree as original, the made the extractor cut and shell lip with a dermal, worked well.
barrel
a. Chamber it to 7.62X54R Long chamber
b. Contour it for #2340: Medium Target Varmint
c. .310 Dia Bore
d. 25.6"
e. The twist is 9.44

I made a receiver mandrill out of bar stock on the lathe then trued the receiver witch was almost perfect in the first place; fins did a hell of a job.

Ordered a tiger wood tacdriver stock from Richards micro fit gun stocks. http://www.rifle-stocks.com/

Ordered Scope mount, Allen screws, side safety and pillars from ken at Rock Solid Ind http://rocksolidind.com/products.html.

Getting a hubber trigger from Tennessee Gun Parts http://www.tngunparts.com.

I mounted the Scope mount and glass bed it for further stabilization, it did not need it but I figured why not, it is a solid mount with the side locking screw, well made, I cannot say enough about this mount so far it is the best aftermarket mount I have seen oe tried for a M39/91 it Rocks, no pun intended :).

I lapped the lugs by cutting and old barrel butting a spring in the chamber and half a shell casing to push against the bolt.

I mounted a Falcon Optics Merlin 10x42T Tactical Rifle Scope, I got from Mel at Sniper central for $280.00
http://www.snipercentral.com/falcon.htm

This scope to me is on par with the Super sniper I like the turret adjustments and retical better and it comes with side focus for less the super sniper.
So now I am waiting for the stock from Richards It cost me $225.00 for the 1 inch pad and 1 inch barrel channel

Stock is simular to this but tiger wood

Very very nice. I'm using Ken's mount, bolt handle and action screws for my m39.

He even agreed to D&T it for me and weld the handle as I don't have the tools.

Ordinarily I'd agree. But your basic M39 is not that rare. And fmsniper here has a reputation for building high quality sporters. The "sniper" in his name is not a fantasy name that he's chosen ;)

Do what you want with your gun, but let us be. This is the sporterizing forum. We sporterize here :)

Cheers.

Dang it your right. I was reading post since my last visit and did not even notice the category. My apologies. I'm starting to sound like an old fart on gunboards anyway ain't I. I can't help it I do dearly love my M-39's.

Stunning mate!

Keep us all posted with the pics - I think the stock will really top it off!
