M39 Barreled Action

Postby AssassinBean » Thu Mar 07, 2013 9:03 pm

Bought my first Finn the other day. It's a 1944 M39 barreled action for my project gun.

Is there anything I should know about these Finns? I was planning on getting a Timney Trigger for it. I assume the standard mosin timney will work fine? Also I'm ordering a stock in the future. Some places don't seem to have a specific cut for M39. What would be the closest action to get it cut for?

Congrats!

The Finns are built on Russian receivers, so standard stuff will work. The bolts are tricky with headspacing, but it looks like you have that and are good to go.

M39 is a .310 bore, so just about anything works in it!

Keep your brass seperated. It is D marked, but still Finns have a habit of being "short shouldered" and not chambering brass which has been shot/fireformed to Russian rifles.

On the stock, the rear sight takes up room not normally inlet for. Just plan to have to widen one if you do not see an M39 there is no other common designation among Finns.
