Someone on SRF says the red stuff is sisu grease. Now to find me a M39 bayo or a puukko as the Finns say.

10-4 Will do I've got a feeler out for one now and if they can get one they probably get two. They are close to the source from what I was told.

I can't decide now if another M39 or a M1 Garand is going to be my first C&R purchase.

Well I'm very disappointed I still haven't got to shoot this rifle yet. I was going to go today but now I've got a cold and don't want to be out in the cold windy weather. I was also planning on doing the fall shoot today maybe next week while I'm off for turkey day I can make it to the range.

Nice looking M39 -- the stock colors are great. Get well and have fun.
