Sky M39 Finnish Mauser

Recommended Posts

I just purchased this from my firearms crack dealer Mr. Hardy. Just about the time I have been a good boy and have resisted buying he posts something on the short list. I trust him and he has a good deal to boot. I succumbed...lol. What do you think?

 

I want to keep the rifle as is plus I want to do I guess you would call it a resto-mod sniper rifle. I found a place that sells no-no go Guages and a place that sells bent bolts for the M39. Also there is a place that makes the Russian mounts and scopes..

hardy is going to drill and tap the receiver to add a PU scope mount to it I got from accumount. I think my next project is to send my beloved M1 Grand to Griffin & Howe and have one of their Garand mounts put on it to make a M1C Garand Sniper Rifle clone.

That might be the date the Fins built it, but the receiver might be older. If you remove the action from the stock, there is sometimes an older date stamped on the tang. The Fins didn't have a problem with using captured Russian actions. The M39 is a much better rifle than the original Russian version.
