    That's actually a steal for an M27 in that shape. Much more common M39s are now going for that much.

    The M27 incidentally was the type of rifle the sniper with the most "kills" in History, Simo Haya, used for most of his kills.
  5. Of course, he would likely have had more had he been using a Mauser, Polish. :D ;) :p

    Actually, polish, he used an M28. Check out mosinnagant.net, the sniper section.

    Sorry, my bad, it was a 28, but that's still a good price for the 27, not THAT much difference. Yeah, twice as many M-27s were made than M-28s, but 60,000 total production versus 30,000 makes them BOTH pretty rare compared to the numbers of say M39s or even just Finn M91s and 91s you see....

    And Pistol, Simo Haya actually had a few kills with a presentation Swedish Mauser, complete with Swavroski scope, and he went back to his Mosin Nagant because it was "More reliable, more accurate, and hit a lot harder, at much longer ranges." :p :cool: :cool: ;) ;)

    I don't know how he put up with that damn Mosin bolt????:confused:
  10. Polish, he was just worried that he might scratch up that beautiful Mauser. :D
