That did go pretty cheap, but I'd suspect that it would have brought more, in my opinion, if it had its original stock and had not been restocked.

I was just about to drool and jump all over that one when I thought it was a 91/24 for under $300!!

Nice rifle all the same.

By the way, a little birdie turned this seller on to mosinnagant.net as well as Ted's site. ;)

It wasn't refinished. Just restocked. Two different things.

Re: restocked

It wasn't refinished. Just restocked. Two different things.
The third photo down, that stock looks too smooth to be a simple restock to me. Just my opinion, but it looks sanded and refinished. I've got a 1940 Tikka M.91 in a refinished stock done with 1/3 pine tar mix by Zampilot and it looks almost identical. Gorgeous wood, but a refinish job nonetheless.

Not trying to argue, just posting an observation. If it's a simple restock it's got nice wood. On some of the restocked rifles I've seen, the grain is raised and the wood appears almost unfinished, not smooth like those photos show. But my experience with restocked Finn's is somewhat limited. Personally I don't like the look of the new stocks, and I sold the 1941 Tikka M.91 I bought from AIM less than 6 months after I got it.
