They are worth this much? EEK!. I can't afford to replace any of my Finnish Nagants. I glass bedded a like new Finnish M24 with a mint 1927 Tikkakoski barrel. At the time it cost me $53.50 and I wanted to see if bedding the action in the stock would improve accuracy. It did change point of impact and make the groups rounder, but I was shooting ball ammunition so the group size was about the same. Now I am wonder if I ruined the collector value. This was fun to shoot: Short barreled Soviet Nagant produced fireballs and a huge noise when fired!
