Nice try there ENABLER!! Almost had me pulling the trigger(pun intended) on a SK.Y. barreled action w/bolt and mag at the $249.99 price. "Yeah, I'll drop it into an ArchAngel stock"  rofl rofl2
My Avatar is a pic of the real "Ghost" SKS in honor of xxxsks(joe). It is a pic of a fully decked out SKS in Capco hunter's kit. This was mine, the only other pic I had ever seen of one was Joe's.

My BIL has a Finnish M91 w/ 32.5" bbl and octagon receiver and it is a real tack driver with the issued iron sights the last time I shot with it.With a bayonet deployed it seems 7ft tall.
When guns are outlawed only outlaws will have guns.

I love the M39 but it's amazing how much these have gone up. Well, I mean these were from Classic Markup Firearms, but they've gone up on the secondary market too.

I'd sort of like a 1948 date but $900, sight unseen  :o  bat1 Nope, $300 more than I'm willing to pony up even in the current market.

Honestly, even the lowliest of these was beyond my interest...I just finished a project, well the assembly anyway. I have zero parts to start with...so nope.
Rabbit holes get expensive. The aforementioned project took off like a nuclear powered hot air ballon.  I imagine Finn parts would be scarce. 
I have fought off the Mosin well, with just a 91/30 boring one, and a nice ratty T53...but these I find neat enough to be a different breed altogether, at least since watching the video.

I do have to give Classic a thumbs up on breaking these down into the multifaceted way they are listing them...despite the prices. I haven't seen them do that before, and it's a heck of a lot more 'honest' than dividing the total value over the lot and sending folks who DIDN'T know the differences a diamond whilst a collector gets the rust, and charging too much or too little during a semi panic buy situation when folks are buying anything they can.

I do imagine that at this price point getting the better of TWO for an extra thirty bucks doesn't hurt as much.

Dangit...now I have to listen to Judas Priest cover Joan Baez.
