    I will say the New Finnish M39 and up next is the M38 kicks like a mule. I like cheap ball ammo.

    OOOH thats a real tough one. I love em all, I think that is what my problem is. I would say the best shooters are my Tikka's. I have a Tikka M39, M91, M27, and a 1943 Round. All are phenomenal shooters and will perform better than me on my best day. My favorite to shoot is my 1944 PU. The gun is a tack driver and has that been there done that look. It's a head turner

    I have a 1941 Sako M39 that is worn out looking and is a great shooter, I also have a 1927 Tikka M91 that will drive tacks.

    I'm hoping to have an M39 soon, but the best shooter I have right now is a finn captured 1941 Izhvesk M91/30. When someone with better eyes and more blood in their caffeine stream than I do shoots it, it's close to MOA.

    I have an M91 Finnish one (it has the long barrel) and it is a shooter. and a couple of years ago I ,oaned it to a buddy and told him ot keep it until I called for it. When I asked him about my rifle he said he loves it and he is amazed how well it shots.

    Why I am I so good to my friends, he is a good buddy of mine.

    My 1942 Sako M 39. It just feels right with that wartime stock. Most say the wood is arctic birch.

    I have a '43 M44 that I can hit coke cans at 100 yards no problem with the yellow tip ammo. Love the fireballs. Will be taking it out to 700 yards this weekend and will try to get video.

    it doesnt kick much compared to the M 44 and M 91 30 . The weight of the woodstock and heavy barrel dampens the recoil. If you can get the Sako, the better. But all of them are worth having.

    I've got a shimmed VKT M91 that outshoots even my M39s. It was my first Mosin, and I've yet to find anything that I can shoot better.

    1943 91/30, cant remember where from. Barrels been lopped with a hack saw, and so has the stock. Its also ugly as sin, with a trigger thats as smooth and consistent as poorly mixed concrete. STILL groups 1-1.5 at 100 for 5 shots with a 4x pistol scope.

    I haven't chimed in yet because I'm hoping it's my new to me SAKO M39.

    Getting to the range soon...

    My favorite is any of them that someone else owns and has to shoot.

    mine is an 1891 Finish capture. has the Finish stamp yet still has the USSR barrel. its a smooth shooter considering that every other Mosin kicks like a mule.
