    Finnish Mosin Nagant hunting rifles

    I recently picked up a stock for a Mosin Nagant.

    A thumb-hole "sporter" stock that appears to be inlet and bedded for relatively light ('91 / '91-30 / maybe M-39 barrel. There is some "winter-grade" checkering (about 10 LPI) on the sides of the fore-end.

    It is adorned with a bunch of round "stickers" dated variously between 1986 and 1997. These are apparently "hunter proficiency" tags that a hunter must have before going into the field for bear, moose, etc. seasons. No tag? Don't get found in the "woods" with a rifle!

    Has anyone any information on this aspect of Finn Mosin Nagantery?

    Are you sure it's 7.62x54r? IIRC I read some where that Hunting rifles couldn't be of a Military Caliber and most where converted to 9.3 x 62

    Point taken on the calibre. All I have is the stock, which is definitely inletted for a MN action.

    Straight-line, thumb-hole configuration.

    If I could find a suitable scope mount, I would seriously consider building it up, but probably in 7.62 x 53R configuration, as this is in Oz. Plenty of "pre-loved" MN specimens here, many going fairly cheap because of rotted-out barrels. My gunsmith "buddy" seems to think it would be a neat idea.

    The Fins have a long rifle history. You will find they converted their Mosins to just about any reasonable calibre you can think of; wildcatted the 7,62x54R to many unheard of calibres.
