Hey guy just gonna share my newest Finn. It's a 1942 M91 with a round reciver and a Belgium barrel.. All numbers on it match ( bolt, reciver, and barrel). It is not counterbored, has a pretty clean barrel actually! Has awesome Finnish on the metal and the stock is perfect IMO.Under the buttplate it has a marking im not sure of.Enjoy guys and any knowledge shared would be appreciated!!

Don't see many round receiver M91s. Finn B barrels were assembled post war, which could be a good reason why the bore condition is so good. That, and if someone shot it, they took care of it and cleaned it well. Nice find, congrats!

Awesome guys I sure appreciate the feedback ill have to take it sort and look for the leige proof. I was so excited web I found it but didn't actually kno how unusually it was. I knew a round reciver was rare but didn't no the combination was fewer than 12!! Does anyone know what the stamp on the stock is?

The leige proof should be just above the wood line on the L/H side of the barrel shank.

Oh, no!
Now I have to start hunting all over again...

QUOTE=sparky236;2939578]Great find - only about a dozen or so known out there. RARE! In comparison - there are 42 27RVs known........

LMAO.........

The good news SG is they go for a lot less than your 27 rv. ;)
