I bought a Mosin Nagant M39 recently, and I can find next to nothing about it. The end of the barrel says "M39 Finland 7.62x54R; CAL. ST. ALB. VT." Then "[SA]; VKT; D; 64216; 1944". Lastly, there's a shield that appears to be a flower with two olive branches with "II K" underneath. It is a beautiful gun, and my pattern from one hundred yards surprised me. I'd just like to know more about it. If you have facts/opinions, please let me know.

Thank you!!!!
So it was imported? I had hopes it was brought back after the war. Oh well. I still love it.

My wife just bought me a 1941 Mosin Nagant on Friday for my birthday. I have been reading and watching Youtubes on this rifle this weekend. I can't wait to shoot it, it is in really great condition...

I bought a 1938 MN for my birthday. I'm in the process of cleaning it. Identifying all the symbols on it. I'm kind of nervous about shooting it. But at the same time I can't wait.
