    Going up to AIM Monday with a buddy of mine. Thinking about picking up a M39. Anything in particular I should look for besides general condition? Has anyone bought one from their recent batch? How was the condition? As always any feedback is appreciated.

    Hey iamkris. What grade is that? Is it a hand select, or regular grade? Hopefully it will warm up soon so you can try it out.

    By all means get one. The Finn M39 is the best Mosin to be had and these things were made to shoot. Look them over, Aim has been great to me and their prices on the Finns seem to be lower than what other online dealers want and what they go for at most funshows. The Sako's and Tikka's are supposed to be very rare. I got a steal on two 42 "B" barrels a few months ago and love them.

    AIM's great. This'll fire you up:

    On the left, an AIM sneak. On the right, a choice 1941 VKT from G&A in NY. They also do a very good job with photos & description of the rifles. They have had a bunch of M39's with "antique" recievers, so no C&R needed.

    My sneak- a 1895 rec. The one from G&A- a 1898. Go figure...

    Also a hard-chrome M44 (Classic), matching# M38.

    Actually, the Sako is the most common variation of the M39. The most desireable in my opinon if you want a war time model is the SKy. The Tikka is indeed relatively rare, but these were probably assembled post war as were the B-barrels (even though marked 1942) and sneaks. My B-barrel is extremely accurate and my other 4 models do at least 2 inch groups at 100 yards.
