Re: Finnish Mosin Found in the Woods and Restored
Indeed they are.. The finns really know thier rifles and have been among the leaders in superior accuracy since the turn of the 20th century. The Finn mosins are all built on hex mosin recievers, most of them original 1891 recievers. Among the changes the fins made were inproved 2 stage trigger, heavier barrel with a 45* crown, much better sights, and a much better stock. I have a pristine example of an M39 Sako sneak rifle. it is very very accurate and a joy to shoot.
I agree with the other guys about the rifle not being worth much despite the story. It is still a military surplus rifle in pretty bad shape.
It takes 43 muscles to frown, 17 to smile, and 3 for proper trigger squeeze.
The latest caliber or gear is no substitute for experience and skill. Rifles and cartridges don't make hits -- shooters do.
Fact of life:
After Monday and Tuesday, even the calendar says WTF!
