I've had a few M27s over the years, but I think this one may be about as original and as-issued as I've personally handled. Note the stock made from a M91 stock, minus any trace of a rear sling slot. Plus, there is a trace of a DeustchesReich stamp on the buttstock.

"F" and "D" marked barrel shank, winged bolt connector, early front band configuration, bicycle/ski-troop front sling swivel, and it doesn't seem to have been refinished after the Continuation War.

Just a nice, original piece. Thanks to a fellow member locally on the chance to swap for this.

Can't tell what the tang date might have been... looks partially scrubbed.

I did look under the buttplate. All I could make out was a "V".

Amazingly enough, this is the first M27 with the early type front band that I've actually owned (out of at least a dozen that I've found over the years). Not that I've been looking for one, as the reinforced design is just as proper.

It seems to be an accurate representation of an "as-issued" M27, being at the end of the window when the narrow modified M91 stocks and early bands were used.

Dredging up an old thread. I never really thought about it before, but where do the unmodified (i.e. original config) M27s fall out in rarity among M27 variants?

I only ask because I've managed 2 or 3 VKT M27s over the years, but I can't think of any other original config M27s that I've seen in person.

Agreed - the un-messed with, non-upgraded guns are tough tough tough! Serialed bolt connector, no SA or D. Hens teeth.

My neighbour has an early m/27 in condition to die for. No upgrades, SA or D. Stock lacquer finish is almost completely there. The only con I noticed is that the barrel has been shortened from the rear, no date can be read. However, this was probably done before WW2, no dents or fresh shiny bubba marks from this can be seen.

That's pretty much the only good one I've handled. Well, I actually saw a war booty once in similar shape but the bolt was from m/91 Dragoon. I passed the gun but years have shown how darn stupid move that was!!!!
