    My 1943 Finnish M39 S.K.Y

    Here are some pictures of my 43 Finnish M39. This shoot beautifully. It's amazing the things the Finns had to do to be able to keep fighting.

    For anyone interested in WWII history, I highly recommend reading A Frozen Hell: The Russo-Finnish Winter Warr of 1939-1940 by William Trotter and Finland at War: The Winter War 1939-40 by Vess Nenye and Peter Munter.

    That is sweet!
    If Sonny had EZ-Pass, he'd have survived that hit...

        Here are some pictures of my 1942 Finnish M91 with a wartime stock. It's really cool how they spliced the front and rear of the stock together.

          Beautiful. I can see it's a VKT with the Imperial eagle stamp mark. You re-do that stock a bit?

              No, didn't touch the stock. I think that it has the original finish. Showed it to the guys on the Gunboards forums and none of them seemed to have any concerns. I don't like to mess with my Milsurps. I like them as original as possible.

                      I've got a 1941 VKT built on an 1896 receiver, with the "D" barrel. My brother and I split a case of Hungarian light ball, but to my shame I haven't shot it yet. What ammo did yours like?

                        Nice rifle!! An S.K.Y M39 is what I don't have. Sadly Pat Burns sold all M39s to Classic. I like to pick and choose individual rifles from the photos. Don't want to take gamble pulling a rifle from the lot by somebody else.
