In 1939 the Finnish Army and Civil Guard adopted a standard rifle known as the M39. It is similar to previous models, but with improved barrel bands and a double sling swivel configuration (front and rear) making it suitable for all types of troops. It is easily recognized by its pistol grip stock although early stocks are "straight" like the M27, M28, and M28/30. M39s were produced by SAKO, VKT, and Tikka. Some Sako rifles have the Civil Guard Sk.Y logo and there are also "B" barrels from Belgium although the rifles were assembled in Finland. M39s are well known for their accuracy and were produced for match shooting and training in the late '60s and early '70s.

From what I can see, they are good rifles. Here's some prices.

A post in another forum said that they are worth about $225, but that was in 2009.

They are high quality military surplus rifles. If you get a good bore, you can have a great shooter.
They are on par with the 1903, or the Enfield in quality.

I go a little against the grain as I prefer the M-27, but most people do like the 39 better. The main difference is that the M-27 sights work better for my old eyes.

That's the variant I want the most. I'll trade you my 91/30 for it
