serial #70098, 7.62x54R, 27'' barrel with an excellent bore. The metal surfaces of this 1940-dated rifle retain 95-97% original blue finish with some light fading to gray. The bolt has some light pitting and the front band screw shows moderate slot damage. The two-piece Finnish stock rates very good plus with some lightly added varnish, a crisp 1940 dated Civil Guard cartouche, a few light abrasions on handguard, a couple light chips in cleaning rod channel, a few dings and handling marks. The bolt is matching to the barrel shank, the buttplate has a faint Russian number that is not matching and the other parts appear unnumbered as-is typical for Finnish Mosins. The left side of the barrel has a lined-out Civil Guard district number of ''S-95089'' for Vassa, there is an army ''SA'' mark on the left side of barrel and there do not appear to be any ''D'' markings for the D166 cartridge. A canvas sling is included that is marked ''SA'' for the Finnish Army. There is a Century Arms import marking on the underside of the barrel. An excellent example of these desirable Finn Mosin rifles. (208998-68) {C&R} (700/900) Sold For 1265.00
