PostSubject: Have no idea what I have   Tue Dec 02, 2014 1:50 pm

ok...the things I know.

I bought this back in 1970.
There are no date or Manufacturer Markings. Looks like the markings for a Finnish M39 shown on 7.62x54r.net for no date/no maker
But has the long sight like a 91/30
Has a 20 1/4" barrel and low wall round receiver.
the only markings are serial numbers. and tula mark on bolt.
Any ideas what I have?

Any stamps under the barrel, just ahead of the receiver?

Will have to take it apart to see. But don't remember seeing anything there. Will take it apart and post everything I can find.
I know at first I thought it was an m39 but that has a longer barrel. And all the ones I see with a 20 1/4 inch barrel have makers markings or at least a date stamp on top of receiver.

Took it apart today and these are the markings I can find under the barrel and receiver.

1) looks like an Oval with a line thru it horizontally and what looks like the arrow head I see in some online markings.
2) An A laying on it's side.
3) A W with a circle around it.

On the receiver behind the lug it is marked OM481

I know...I have gone to a few sights looking at markings and can't find the ones I have on mine.

The only thing I saw was the finnish showing a serial  number and no date/no maker for the M39 but the M39 has a 27 inch barrel not 20 1/4.

It can be tough identifying these things sometimes, because it could have easily had a different barrel put on, or the barrel shortened, etc etc. 

Is there import markings on it?

Did you look down by the muzzle end of the barrel? Sometimes C.A.I. stamped theirs down there.

tomorrow I will dig out my camera and take pics. Cause I can't find any other markings anywhere on the barrel or receiver. Other than what looks like dents or assembly marks. The one that looks like an assembly mark looks like an alignment hash mark on both barrel and receiver.

Couldn't get my camera to work. But after much closer inspection. I am convinced the barrel is the original to the receiver. but I do believe it has been cut down as the front of the barrel looks different than any I can find pics of. The barrel is 20 1/4" long but the front sight is different. the front sight is a blade type that is press fit over the barrel and then pinned.
