Just wondering if there's many from 42-44. Because of the largely static type of warfare waged on the Finn/Soviet front from later 1942 until the summer of 1944, I'm guessing there aren't many from this period.

I don't have any dated past 1939 FWIW, so I'm not in the running for this one.

Poot, 1939 is the latest I have also. A friend of mine (not his handle) has a '42 91-30. The odd thing about this capture is that it is "41" stamped. Haunted??????

My latest date Finn captures are:
1943 Izhevsk 91/30 SA
1943 Izhevsk M44 SA
I've heard of a couple from 1944 but they seem to be extremely few and far between. I also have a couple of SA marked 42 Izhevsk 91/30's but these seem to be quite a bit more common. Anything dated later than 42 is very hard to find.

I have one that is 1944 91-30. There is no SA mark but there are several features that just scream Finn.

I agree Mike. A real find would be a '44 dated M44 capture. Yummmmm...

These are my latest:

1943 Izhevsk original PU sniper SA marked
1944 Tula 91/30 SA marked
1944 Izhevsk Nagant Revolver SA marked

I have an SA marked M38 on the way but I don't remember the year. Still looking hard for an SA marked M44.

Yep, I gots an SA marked 1944 dated M44. Unfortunately, it is missing the bayonet, so it ain't hardly worth anything, right?:D

I gotta say, though, about the coolest M44 I've ever seen or heard of is Mikes SA marked 1943 M44 that never had a serial number.

He he, not even if it's a 1944 Tikka 91/59! Although, that would kinda fit in with the stuff we're talking about!

1946 Tula 91/30 hex reciever, 41 and double SA stamped. Finn capture papers state that a rogue Russian soldier refused to give up the fight, and hid out in the borderlands for two years until captured by the finns and given a shower and shave.

The rifle was imported and sold to Dennis Kroh, who oddly enough, didn't recognize how unique it was and sold it to me as "just some russian crap". I got it for $45 dollars - its real nice.

Okay, I have to admit, I made that up. All I've got is a 1939 Tula and Izhevsk. I just wanted to be a big man! ;)
