Rooster,
I would help if you could tell us which Finnish model of Mosin Nagant you are describing. Is it a m91, M91/30,M28, M39 etc. What kind of scope does it have? Look in Google images under Finnish Mosin Nagant Sniper rifles for pictures.
I am sure the rest on the forum can give you much more detailed info.

I don't have any knowledge of the Mosins but I will :welcome: to our little home. There are a few people who know some about them though.

chances are 99% its a fake.century built a bunch of them in the early 90's on finn (sa) 91/30 rifles.the real finn sniper rifles are some of the rarest rifles in the world.if it was a real finn sniper you better have deep pockets.

Doug Bowser had a 91/30 Finn captured PU in his collection minus the scope.

Can you post some pictures?
