I have two MN. one is a 1937 Tula carbine $25.00 pick up that had been fully bubbarized before I scout scoped and put a cheek piece on it. Is my dedicated truck gun and very accurate with cast boolits.
The other one I really lucked out on, was in a local gun shop I frequent and it had the normal rack of MN for $150.00 each. Not being interested, I just glanced at them, then, blam, saw one had a pistol grip stock and knew what it was. It was a 1942 Finn MN with a Sako barrel and a near perfect bore. I never uttered a peep until it was bought, paid for, and in my hands. I then casually mentioned to the owner that it was a good price for a Finn. He got that aw chit look on his face, then softly said, it was a damn good price, which would not be repeated. I guess it got mixed up with the Russian MN and nobody caught it, their bad and my good luck.

I put on a Mosin shoot 3-4 times a year in Como, MS. 200, 300 and 600 yds. Prone unsupported at half silhouettes. Lotsa fun!
