Pahtu - congrats on the PL marked VKT M91. Seems like I always see Tikka's with that marking. I think that is only the second or third VKT I have seen. Nice one!

Thanks - I also have noticed there are few M91 VKT's that are PL marked - I wonder why? Mebbe folks just don't post em?

I feel lucky on the buy, as it should have sold for much more - The 91-24 I wanted as well, but I also wanted to eat this month :eek:

The MN's that show possible battle damage are very very interesting. :)

Pahtu.

I never realized what shrapnel can do, I always thought it was big chunks of metal that will kill or injure you. In this photo it's obvious the previous stock has been replaced. The marks on the magazine housing shows the potential damaging power of shrapnel. Looks like a wild shotgun blast! Painful on the skin and if it hit your eyes!
I realize more and more that WAR really is HELL :(

The '39 Tula ex-PEM is now mine.:D I should have it by the end of next week. MTMN is correct. The seller had no idea what it was and also could have improved his listing in several ways. I was biting my nails to the last few seconds of that one. :eek: I'll post more info when I get it. I picked up a '43 Tula PU this week, also. Same type of deal, where the seller didn't know, but I spotted it right away.
