I'll add to the slightly off topic discussion... Here are some close up pictures of my 1893 M-N. What I call my "$130 history lesson." 1893 darted receiver (although I found a "91r" on the receiver tang when I took it out of the stock). "AZ" Austrian Great War capture marks. And boxed "SA" Finnish stamp as well as Finnish stock replacement. I presume first year production; Russian use against Austria in the Great War; Austrian WWI capture and reissue; Austrian war reparations to Italy; Italian sale to Finland; reuse against the Russians in the Winter War. A busy first 50 years...




I also have Finnish marked and stocked Remington and Westinghouse M-Ns in my accumulation of Finnish small arms.

Nice MN BRMPCF50, how about a pic of the entire rifle?

The 1893 date is on the barrel, and the 91r you found under the tang is the receiver date. Possibly a re-barrel but not unlikely that it is the original barrel.
That really has quite a set of passport stamps on it.
I had a Westinghouse and traded it years ago, one of my few regrets.
Have a few 1891s, a bunch of 91/30s. M38, M44s,.
Fortunately I only acquired one Finn, most seem to succumb to Finnitis pretty aggressively.

Zvenoman -- pictures of: the '91 Mosin, and its bolt serialed to the rifle (likely by the Finns); receivers of a 1917 Remington and 1915 Westinghouse; and a Finnish L-35 pistol for good measure.

Surely there is an explanation for those bids, heck if I know what it is.

Not hard to explain at all. There are only a dozen or so M39's documented that have barrels repurposed from earlier Mosin's and that one is the only known example that has a post Russian revolution barrel. The current high bidder is a very well known Finnish collector who generally pays whatever it takes to get the rare ones for his collection.

Just a few weeks ago I saw two revolvers in a local shop that I wanted. So I put a K31 and an M39 on consignment. I wanted $550 for the K31 and $450 for the M39. Shop then tacked on his percentage which put the K31 over $600 and the M39 over $500. The K31 lasted one day and the Finn lasted 3 days. $450 is a fair price for an M39 in nice shape. I hope you rescued it.
