After waiting a month to the day, including shipping time, and the great customs delays, my two M39s that I bought from WGA in the US showed up on my doorstep on Friday afternoon. They were taken down the range today, and I can see why they have a reputation for good accuracy.

SAKO M39 1942 - this one shot the better of the two, and will probably replace my M38 Swede at Service Rifle competitions.





SAKO Sk.Y 1942





I used two types of ammo, Hungarian 1973 Silver/Yellow tip heavy ball and Barnaul 203grn Softpoints. Neither rifle liked the Barnaul very much.

Problem is, now I want more. I also now have more Finn Mosins in my collection than other countries so I am contemplating hocking those non-Finn rifles to concentrate on Finn Mosins only....

Overall I'm very impressed with WGAs service, product, and speed of shipping. I will be a repeat customer.

Thanks for the good words, guys.

Funnily enough the top rifle is marked as a '98/22 8mm Czecho' in the Century import mark. Must've been stamped on a Monday morning...

Next on my list is a Straight Stock, and that might just about do it for M39s. Then it'll be looking other Finn types. They too will have to come from the US.

Yep, one is 1898, and one is 1895. If they were on post-1899 receivers I wouldn't have bothered. Far too expensive, and it would take about six months.

Not sure if I'd import two rifles at once again, the GST/Duty I had to pay was a bit more than I wanted to, but I'd easily make my money back if I were to sell them on TM.

Those are both absolutly beautiful rifles. That's great that you were able to get them imported to your country so quickly as well. Enjoy!
