Picked up a NEW a few weeks ago and would like to hear your thoughts on it. It is the first non bolt/reciever matching Finn gun I have picked up, and it drives me crazy. However, the stock and the reciever are original to eachother.

Would love some feedback on this.

For me? Finned rifle? Not a big deal, for others, a hit in desirability - A plus for that rifle, it appears it rests in it's original stock. I have many M91's and a few of them are mismatched(bolts for sure), not a big deal for me.

Thanks Pahtu, the stock is the reason I bought it. I figured that would have to have some weight. Bore is great on it too. I guess I will learn to overlook the bolt eventually!

It would have been nice if the original bolt was there too! Like I said, it has a lot of positives.

I bought it with a group of Rifles, here is the one I really wanted....

Mismatched bolts bother some collectors & for folks like me it does not matter - Sure I use such things like mismatched bolts as a bargaining point to lower price, but really if it is mismatched and i want the piece, then it matters little to me for Mosins.

Nice buy on the M27, now we need close up pics on everything....;)

My Peekers ain't so good anymore(lets be honest...my peekers never were any good...;))

It being a Finnish marked the bolt mismatch .. especially on a non-Finnish built gun (Finnish built being - m39s, m27s etc) is a non issue to me. I echo pahtu's above statement. Most Russian acquired rifles are forced matched by the Finnish any way.

Thanks Spax. The gun has so much else going for it I guess I should overlook that fact. The bolt is probably the one it came from Finland with, and I am assuming could have been the one in it for a long time.

Pahtu, I will try and get some pics of the m27 up later. I posted a closeup in the "stock disk" post and got some neat information about the history of the regiment. The thing was/is a warhorse and is my second 1933 m27.

Nice looking gun. The mismatch would not be a deal breaker for me, I have a couple of finns with mismatched bolts, so IMO I would not let that be a major concern. It is what it is, still a very fine piece.
