    I finally got around to grabbing a few shots with the phone. More pics with the real camera soon.

    The M39 is dated 1943 on the barrel, and turned out to be a Tikka, though by the price I don't think the seller realized this. Looks unissued with a mirror bore and hang tag attached. Receiver is Tula 1902, stock is postwar, and the trigger and mag both have Izhevsk markings.

    The 91/30 is dated 1942 and has a whole assortment of markings that will take awhile to decipher. Definitely Izhevsk. Barrel is good, but not great. With significant cleaning she's starting to get a little shiny, and the rifling is edgy, but pitted up a bit in between. Bought it for a Ukrainian-American friend whose grandfather fought in WWII and whose father was born in 1942.

    They are coming I promise. Wanna do it in the daylight, so it will most likely have to wait until tomorrow, but they are coming;)

    You asked for more photos

    Here are a few more, better quality pics of the M39. *I'll take her apart for some detail pics later this weekend.
