Here is my Mosin sporter in caliber 6,3x52R (.25-35) made by arms workshop Aarre Viitanen.
.25-35 was quite common caliber in small game rifles (Mauser 96, Mosins, Tikka H-45 and Valmet combination guns) after war years in Finland.
I can't wait for the black grouse season...



Bolt is modified for smaller rim

please show more pics from your mosin! I love such unusual caliber - rifle combinations.
have learned that this is a very typical postwar style for finish sporting rifles:

A german M 88 action with a barrel in 6,5x54 Kurz Mauser, maybe the last M 88 sporter ever made

a japanese Arisaka action with a 7x57 barrel

wonderful strange rifle's http://www.kerailyase.fi/Uutuudet.php

the Sako L 46 rifle in 7x33

http://www.ace-gun.com/product_details.php?p=1218

think this design looks equally good for hunting and target shooting

@9,3x57. That's a beautiful stock on your Finnish M/39. Looks like your rifle is in original configuration? Just out of curiosity, what stamps are there on the barrel shank?

The owner, a (very) old forrester, has been elsewhere this winter. I hope to meet up with him later this spring to close the deal

He told me that he still has the original hunting diopter for it... can't wait!

Bokmål;

I wish I could remember!

That picture was taken about 13 years ago and I sold my M/N collection not too long after this. It was a Valmet-built rifle w/ plum-colored, "B" barrel.

I had 38's, 91/30's, Finn 91, 28-30, 39 models. Great rifles.

Ok, pity...

BTW, it's Bokmal (= bookworm), not Bokmål (Old style Norwegian language). But I'm impressed at your knowledge of Scandinavian terminology. Judging from your webnick you're no stranger to Scandinavian calibers either?

Sorry Bokmal!

Yeah, 6.5x55 and 9.3x57 are my favorites.

BTW: With that 39, after this pic was taken, to protect the barrel from rust and use because it was a plum blue, I painted it light green. Used it for a number of years and then before selling it, stripped the paint with Zip-Strip chemical paint remover. Barrel was perfect underneath and the plan worked well!

Thanks all, Parker Arms of PA did the metal and Old South Restoration of Dyersburg TN did the stock work. I'll need to calibrate the sights; now the fun begins lol. It's in original caliber.

rrrgcy,

Did you do this yourself, or did you get the rifle built for you? Very nice work, indeed! Thanks for sharing pics and hope to see more hunting pics from your great state!

last time when I visit the master 3 weeks ago he had the confirmation from Triebel guntools that they send him a 9,3x53r Fin. headspace gage for checking the barrel action combination before proof.


here it is and I am a little bit sorry it dont came before

Lancaster, Well it sure looks like the project that just about everyone here has been waiting for has come to fruition. I like it. Not too long a barrel nor too short. Are you going to use this rifle for hunting? Best wishes, Frank

oh, I am sorry when it was not clear!

the sporting rifle I post is offered in Finland now. please see the link to a this finnish dealer website.
if I had found such a rifle 2 years ago my own project have never started because I was happy with this.
I hope to bring my own mosin sporter back to finnland again for moose hunting in the future. very friendly country, nice people, like them very much.

OK,so I'm guessing that your moisin is still "in the working stage" and not finished yet.
I think a lot of the membership will love to see the finished project, I know I would. Frank

your wish is my command and the adventure continues

I visit my gunmaker today and the barrel is now officialy married with the action




just coming back from the proof house in Suhl the biggest step is taken. to my surprice, because its not in the list, Triebel Guntools in germany had have a complete set of tools - headspace gauge and chamber reamer and this was realy necessary because headspace was way out of specs.
we were talking now about the whole concept and the gunmaker have +/- 4 weeks to solder the open sights on the barrel and make the claw mount. when the scope is ready I will see it again. last step is to bent the bolt and when this is done I get the rifle in the white back home to make the stock.

you know that it was allways planned as a counterpart to my Husqvarna M 46 because I am vey pleased with the classic style they found. only difference would be the pistol grib with a cap. its much easier to find a good form with a grip cap than making a good rounded pistol grip.



so it will probably looking a little bit more than a Husqvarna M 146

have learned that this is a very typical postwar style for finish sporting rifles:





Most interesting finnish made militaryrifle sporter that I have seen was Gewehr-98 rebarreled for 7,62x55. It used swedish-mauser case opened for 7,62 bullet. Im not sure if the chambering was 7,5x54 MAS or some gunsmiths own wildcat. Owner said that the conversion was made before WW2.
Sadly the rifle was rebarreled to .308 win.

very interesting sporting rifle in finland. what we see on the pics it must be a romania mannlicher M 93 action. probably build by Sako its chambered in 9,3x53R and use the Mannlicher M 95 clip. remember that the 8x50R Mannlicher and the 7,62x54R have a very similar rim/ base diameter.
must have been one of the romania military rifle's captured from austria in WW 1 and rebuild for the 8x50R by Steyr. than comes to finland and sporterized after WW 2.
sometimes its a long way
igorrock is working to get this rifle, good luck









finally Bokmal found a original and complete russian cartridge box for my collection in Finland. its not in my hands just know but I am very happy about it. this is truly the white elephant of the cartridge collectors.
and again with brass case so it seems right that the old production was made with brass when the new LVE ammo have copper plated steel cases.
