Well, photos as promised:


You do not realize from most photos how off-center the handgrip and buttstock are on these:


Here is a look at the original diopter, and one fitted with an adapter for the late model eyepiece. Note how much deeper the socket is, and it is threaded on the inside of the perimeter, perhaps for an eyecup of some sort.

This has a "no-logo" pressure proof just like the M39 B barrel postwar, yet has the SAKO gearwheel on the sight base.

Makes me wonder if it was the postwar style.

Here is a look at the M27 style pinned sear trigger, which cams against the receiver instead of the normal trigger pin, which is absent

Do not fear, it was re-assembled with Finnstigator's ejector set and Finny will get the new one. The rear of the spring and top of the screw get shaved for diopter clearance, and the Finnstigator has an RSI mount bedding on it as I type ;)

Knowing it came from importer, to a non shooter's safe then me, means this sear trimming was probably from the orginial Finnish shooter:

That is so cool! Those Finns sure know how to make a Mosin better! I can't help but wonder how the trigger feels vs a normal Russian trigger. I have been thinking about polishing up the contact points on the sear in the Mosin I just got. I'd really like to do a more old school, refinement of the action itself meaning polishing up the camming surfaces of the bolt, working on the sear and just seeing really what ARE the limitations of the stock style trigger. As it sits right now it has a pretty darn good two stage trigger with a pretty sloppy break. Actually in building the new one I found that the sear that was on my M9130A2 build originally was incredibly heavy but the ones in the new one and my carbine were MUCH lighter. Quite odd indeed.

Jeez I kind of walked off topic here, sorry DD! Thanks for sharing!
