    Finn M39 question

    Hey guys!
    First post, Relatively new milsurp collector, but I definitely have 'the bug' now.. love shooting them, love the history... anyways -glad to be here!

    Just looking for some advice on a potential purchase.

    I have the opportunity to buy a Finn M39 up here in Canadaicon, the wood has obviously been refinished (a bit sloppily as you'll see), and the receiver was drilled for an unknown scope once upon a time.
    Just curious as to whether you feel it is worth the $1200 Canadian ($920 usd) pricetag it holds.

    Thanks for your time & expertise.

    I'm not an expert, but sounds pretty high to me, at least for here in the US. I sold a very nice M39 about 1 year ago for $550, and it was one of the harder to find late date "no name" or "ghost" models. Here is a listing I saw earlier this year that sold for $485 including shipping: 1944 Finn M39

    They are very nice shooting rifles by the way. Sort of wish I still had mine, but my eyes and iron sights don't get along anymore. Good luck finding one.

    Thanks for your reply!
    Wow.. much nicer condition & price, I wouldnít hesitate for a second on that buy.
    I have a taste for the Finn rifles now because I picked up an M91 earlier this year.
    Iím just not sure if the higher pricing is just because of the Canadaicon factor.. couple months of searching now and this is the first M39 Iíve seen pop up anywhere north of the border.
    For some perspective on our milsurp prices - I bought a Swissicon K31 up here for (what seems to be the going rate) - $680 usd.

    Iím not opposed to shopping south of the border, but honestly have no clue about the logistics of actually getting up here after the sale.

    Most of the ones I seen sell from private sellers in the past year or two here in the US have gone in the $5-600 range. Of course, you would pay more from a dealer.
