As far as collecting Finish rifles or info on Simo Häyhä. A good book is Rifles of the White Death by Doug Bowser. It has a lot of good info in it. Yea, Simo was pretty handy with the M28, M28/30 and the Suomi K31 SMG. He also used a K31 for many of his kills. Here's a link to a review and a little info on the book.
Rifles of the White Death - A Collector's Guide to Finnish Military Rifles 1918-1944

Default M91/30

I got lucky when Big 5 sporting goods had a sale & purchased one with all the
"goodies" for a hundred bucks! All #,s match except for the bayonet and the
rifle is marked 1942, and after a slight adjustment to the front sight it will
shoot a 2" group @ 100 yards or better! The bore is in pristine condition &
the rifle is now a "back-up" elk hunting weapon when weather conditions
turn too foul to use my prized Win mdl 70 in .308 win! The 7.62x54R round
is nearly identical in performance to the .308... & If I had this rifle in 2008
the cow elk I harvested then would have been dead before it hit the ground!
The scope on my "70" is zeroed in @ 400 yds & even though I aimed low @
100 yds it was hit in the spine & needed to be put-down with my sidearm.

i rather loved my 1939 Ex-Dragoon, had a beautiful bore, converted lovingly in Tula, hit a can of grizzly wintergreen at 200 meters

dragoons and ex dragoons are about 2-3 inches longer then standard 91-30's

Default I got to test my mosin...

Friday after ajusting the front sight with some non corrosive ammo with .150
gr btsp rounds & it is now deadly accurate @ 100 yards! (I wish this rifle
would have been available) when I was looking for a cheap deer rifle in 1979!
Back then I purchased a Win 30/30 for $140. when the dollar was worth more.
By todays standards, a Mosin with, (all the goodies) including a bayonet from
Big 5 sporting goods for a $100. is the value of a lifetime!

Default Which Mosin Nagant variant?

I own both of the Mosin Nagants and am very very pleased with both.
The M44 is the carbine version of the 91/30 long rifle and both shoot very accurate. My next toy is a Dragonouv or a SVT-40.
But I must say I bought my M44 for 58.00 and the 91/30 for 78.00 hand picked.

Default Mosin Nagant

I have several different models of these, All so far have been very good shooters, I have learned to keep alot of spare parts onhand , get them while they were cheap, Alot of them are dark bores but they stil shoot straight, For a good fun shooter and cost so little to shoot them you can't go wrong with them, The M44 has went up in price now and I am glad I bought 10 of them while they were cheap. alot of cracked stocks but not to apoint of being a problem. Good choice for a fun gun to shoot. LB

I have a polish m44 manufacture date 1952 and a Russian 91/30 manufacture date 1937. By far the polish m44 is better, smoother action,trigger pull and is accurate as hell. the 91/30 is pretty accurate to but is much more crude. i would love a Finn Mosin some day. You cant really go wrong with any variant but a polish or a finn are arguably the best.
