Default Finnish Mosin M27

What do you guys think of the above model rifle? The rifle I'm considering looks to be in really good condition and could probably be picked up in the $350-375 range. Octagon receiver is dated 1928.

The Winter War of 1939 pitted the Finns against the Russians. Both sides used the Mosin Nagant rifle.

Simo Hayha was a Finnish Army Sniper who killed over 500 Russians in less than a year using the Finnish version of the Mosin Nagant with iron sights. He killed an additional 200 or so Russians with a submachine gun.

Default Finnish Mosin M27

If you just get one Finn get an M39, but the M27 is awesome also.

PS: the 1928 date is probably on the barrel, right? Thatís a more common year but the price you list is right. The hex receiver would be dated on the underside of the tang. As the Finns didnít make their own receivers, and the Russians left a lot of these in 1917 when Finland became independent, the receiver is older than probably 1917.

Yes, date on barrel. Thanks for schooling on the Finn. I have not owned a Mosin in many years. Looking forward to owning another.

Amazing rifle. IMHO the M39 is the zenith of the mosin design but the history and rarity of the M27 is a bonus.

BandofM1. That is a remarkable site. I have never seen that before. Now not only do I want the M27 but also the M39. I have been diligent in the last several years to reduce my collection down to just those weapons I want to pass on to my son. Guess I have a few more to add on to the keeper list.

A lot of the M27's were converted up to the M28/30 rifle. A very fine rifle, the M28/30 has a .308 bore and is a great shooter.
