this is my new 1934 m27 with a tikka barrel. it has a matching bolt but the floorplate is unmarked. the barrel looked like a sewage pipe when i got it today and 2 hours later it looks 100% better but i couldn't manage to take a good picture of it. the one i took looks like there is no rifling left but its there. the stock has its share of dings but i had to have it in my collection i am starting, so here it is......i present DORA the m27!!!

my pathetic attempt at firearm photography. BTW that is my gun cleaning chair. I feel so much better knowing boots and dora have my back while cleaning my firearms!

well, here is the results of my first day at the range with Dora. took a little while to get use to sighting it. initially it was shooting about 3 feet high. come to find out, when the slide on the back sight is pulled all the way back, it rests on the top of the barrel. after i moved the slide forward a hair, it was resting on the sight rail like it was supposed to and was free of the barrel. then it was shooting the typical 1 foot high. the following is one of my targets holding 6 o'clock about a foot below center on the target at 100 yards. 15 shots on this target. i think i will be able to do better once i'm used to it since it aims different than my m39. need to change ammo too, having the same sticky bolt problem with it as my m39 using hungarian copper washed ammo.

Looks great! Congrats! I was fortunate enough to pick up an M28 earlier this year, to add to the M39. Now I am curious to get an M-91 just to see how the original model looked.
