New to me Finn M27. About 11,500 of these were made that year so it's a more common year for the M27 which had total production of around 60,000. Mr. Doug's book 'Rifles of the White Death' seems to say only 26,700 M27 were in inventory when Finland surplused the guns...most of the rest lost to attrition from the war I'd assume. I would think most who have held and fired a Mosin would say they leave a lot to be desired, but these guns that the Finns made reusing Russian Mosin receivers and other parts with improved stocks, barrels, triggers, sights and such are definitely fine instruments and any lover of milsurps owes it to themselves to pick one up (M27, M28, M39).
