Product Information

This is a WWII Finnish captured Russian Mosin Nagant M/91 rifle with early "Hex receiver". This rifle was captured by the Finn's during the Winter War of 1939-40 when Russian forces invaded Finland in an attempt to reclaim territory lost during the Russian Civil War in 1917 when Finland declared independence from Russia. Russian forces were ill-prepared for the freezing conditions and aggressive defense by Finnish forces, the conflict ended in 1940 . The Finn's captured various weapons, including M/91 rifles, and after defeating the Russians these newly captured weapons were marked with Finnish army property stamp "SA" . They were then arsenal reworked and have distinctive sling hoops, wood work and rear sights, all Finnish army conversions and only seen on this type of rifle.

This example is in great condition and is dated 1944. The  T in triangle within a circle is the mark of the Finnish, Tikkakoski factory where the reworking was carried. During WWII Finland sided with the Axis powers using these capture rifles.

Deactivated with a working action it can be cocked and dry fired.
