Hi all, My dad has just acquired an M39 from a friend and wasn't sure what it was at the time. I have been researching it a little and I'm not sure how unique (if at all) it is. The main differences that is see from most is that it has a straight stock and a round receiver. These two things make me think that it may be pretty unique. It has all matching numbers. I haven't been able to match and of the marking from any of the websites that I have researched. So, I'm not sure if I have anything rare or not. Also, the sling goes through the stock, Ihave yet to see another one like that. Any help would be appreciated. Also, if it is unique, I would like to find a rough value for it. Thanks

3. Made in 1943 Izhevsk

4. Not Finnish

5. not rare, yours is one of the most common actually. But the history is there.
