    91-30s come 20 to the case and can be bought for @ $90 each(will have to check). Anyone want one? If so list here or PM and will check into buying a case. Will also check on ammo availability and cost. Am SE of Charlotte so will need to be FTF buys.

    Dumb question, but just trying to learn something here. I assume one is better than the other. So which is better and why?

    One is more sought after ( It's Older) i wouldn't say it is more acurate .The Hex is the older style If I remember correctly. I have a round style made in 1946

    p.s...my spelling sucks. I edited the previous post and still left a misspelled word in it.

    Any Finns in a given batch? I already have a Russian 91 and an M44.

    Hexes are stronger (marginally) due to having more material in the receiver. Also, makes it way easier to drill and tap for a scope. There are after market scope mounts that surround the hex and use it for support. The also make one for the round but I like how the hex fits tighter.

    As for the finns, I think they'd be m39's typically they were captured 91/30s that the finns captured and remanned.

    if they are in the lots for 90 bucks each, I'm selling dead eye in the basement to buy all the finns in the crate.

    Likewise on the Finn and 44 but thought it would be nice to have another. Will know by Fri evening. Be out of town Sat/Sun so will reply asap.

    Yup, the Finns were remanned, the quality is much better, too. They won't go for the same price as the Russians, not even close, unless a stray shows up in a crate. Doubtful.

    was always curious why there was a markedly different price on some... just thought people were overcharging. How can you tell if one is a Finn?

    Finn'd Mosin's bear Finnish arsenal / capture stamps.
    The Finn's kept the ones which could shoot to 3MOA or better.

    The finns also typically had SA stamped on them, typically the stock and the receiver. Stands for Finnish Army

    I have been looking online for them. Hard to find now. Have found the Chinese type 53 carbine a few places.

    Finns are most likely NOT going to be in a crate. They will have been weeded out because a bad Finn is still worth 3 Drunken Russians.

    Finns typically run 290 for a beat up M39 or 1200+ for the 28-76 target version.

    Yeppers, Us Finns are freaking spectacular. But you tend to find us one at a time, hiding in plain sight, working our way down the ranks.
