An impromptu display of my two pride and joy Mosins. The wife let me hang them up.

The top one is a 1930 ex dragoon
And the bottom is a 1928 Tula 5 line MO double date.

And before anyone says anything about gun safety. The firing pins have been swapped with a couple that I ground down. So they are inoperable.

Photobucket says you have no bandwidth left. You might be able to attach the pictures directly as attachments to your post, though.

So is it really from Finland, or just sort of like from Finland?

Mine's a Finnish M27:

The barrel was made in Tikkakoski, Finland, and it has a decidedly "Finnish" trigger group (very nice, clean break). The Finnish rifles were essentially new designs build on old Russian receivers, so the receiver isn't Finnish.

I dunno if that question was genuine or sarcastic, but I'd say that's "really from Finland".
