Seeing this reminds me that I need to take my own M39 out and just look at it for a while. :lol: I am not being obsessive am I? :lolno:

Thanks for sharing gandog

I have been eyeballing those M91s more and more. They are usually cheeper and I think they are so long and slender looking.

What started this all was my M39 looked lonely. So know I have an M24, M27, M28, and M39. All Finns.

Actually, I queried the seller and asked him if it was an M27 for sure, because everybody was telling me it was an M39. After a few emails back and forth he said no, it probably was an M39. So I said I did not want it as I already had an M39 with a VKT barrel, and I only bid that much for an M27. I offered to still get it, but only for a much lower price. He said no, couldn't do that, and he just relisted it (Correctly this time) and said I didn't have to pay. So then I bid on another M27 online, but the final sale price went to over $400. (I quit about $350. Third Time a charm? Now I won an auction for an M27....AGAIN! This one ended up at $299. It is strange though. The seller says it has an M27/30 stock. That's OK with me. Then he said he thinks it's a New England Westinghouse receiver. I find that odd, but OK also. Anyways waiting for the invoice. And I just supposedly sold a set of Crimson Trace Laser grips for a 1911 for $200. (Money order supposedly sent already) So with that money, only cost me $99 + 30 bucks shipping.

I was just amazed 2 days after one sold on Gunbroker for $460 (I quit bidding at $350) that I got one for $299, and was the only bidder. He had a buy it now price of $350, so I was sweating the last hour of the auction. My max bid was that 350, but nobody else bid on it.
