Yes, it's one of three known 1926 dated Tikka M39's: 686, 4058, 5151



On average based off the figures in my database, over $1.5 each. 1940 and 1941 are the least common outside of 1926 (with...

Andy, yeah I figured it might be a typo. But with Finns you just never know until one shows up. Case in point the 1941 Civilian Sales M28/30 out there on a round receiver!

Another Finnish Used Remington M91 with Stock Disc

I've been on a logistically themed Finnish stock disc kick lately. Here is another Finnish M91 that is something of a mixmaster compared to the last one I posted. In addition to the stock disc and...

Theoretically there could a 1927 dated example out there as well. However about half the production that year were stepped barrels and therefore unsuitable for conversion into M39's. Wouldn't be...

The Finns ordered the stock discs removed during the Winter War (1939-1940) due to the same logic as you cited about the British. Because of this, any Finnish rifle dated 1940 or later with a stock...

Finnish used Remington M91 with Stock Disc

I'm a big fan of Finnish rifles with stock discs, and was able to snag this one recently. The really neat thing about this one (besides the stock disc) is that almost every single part on the rifle...

1943 Finnish captured M91/30, M38, and M44

I have always found post-1941 Finnish captured weapons from the Continuation War much more interesting than those captured during the Winter War. The main reason is that there are fewer of them, and...

M1 carbine and the others mentioned is what comes to mind. If you expanded to bolt action you could add the Spanish destroyer carbine:

Thanks for the advice. Tracking that they’re not cheap. Ideally I’d like one with a VAR barrel, but I’m not going to be that picky if I find a mixmaster example.

Hmmm. Well I might as well get another rifle from them. The service grade at $630 seems like a bargain all things considered.
