This is my Finnish M27 just about complete. I'm looking for the proper bayonet for it and the proper sling.

I just got an M27 with a Tikka barrel dated 1934.
Many people say I am paranoid because I have so many guns. If I have many guns, what do I have to be paranoid about?

Thanks everyone, it was a labor of love to tell the truth, you should have seen it when I got it. Man it was a mess.

Now I have another dilemma on my hands I have a M28/30 I haven't taken out to the range yet. She is mostly in the white at the moment but I'm considering doing a semi or full restoration on it. I do know that there are those out there that think it's better to leave them alone. Open to opinions on this one.

Define "in the white". You mean just a very faded bluing or the bluing has been removed? If it was just worn, you could lose a lot of value if you reblued it. If the bluing is gone, yeah, I would reblue it.
