Default Going price for a Finn M39

I want to pick up a Finn M39. Looking at a 1944 VKT M39 refurbished in 1970 still has the hang tag from the Arsenal. Excellent shape, asking $600.00. Is this what I can expect to pay now?

Thats on the high end, but not out of asking price. If you want it enough it is a fair price

$600 is not a bad price if you want it. They are not getting any cheaper

If you can snag for 500 it would be a better deal but if it’s nice and you like it drop the cash man!

These are getting much harder to get. I don't think it's unfair. If you want one with those particular features don't pass it up.

Screwed up and did not do the buy it now. Time I got home from work the auction passed the reserve price and buy it now was gone so I ended up being out bid. I'll keep looking.

$600 for unissued refurb, For good condition I would say $450-480 at best. I sold one about a year ago with arsenal tags and a B barrel for $575.

Note the post above that this sold at $600. Prices on these are not what they were a year ago

I bought mine from Classic about 2 years ago and I think I paid $400 or $500 when they got a huge shipment of them in. A lot for a Mosin back then but I knew they would go up in value. Cheapest I've seen in my area was $500 and that was a few weeks ago.

Bummer you missed out. I consider the m39 the nicest variation of the Mosin family. But like said before, they are only getting more expensive so look at it as an investment also. My local shops are selling your basic mixed arsenal parts 91/30s for $350-$375. And they are always sold out.

Empire Arms has sent out two lists recently for Finn Mosins. The most recent being this morning. The most expensive M39s were $625, most were $525 to $575 with 90-95% bluing.

^^^ How do you get your stocks so shiny & clean looking ? My M39s all have the
dull faded look. Wax ? What kind of cleaner do you use ?

Don't mess with the stock unless you want your $600 rifle to turn into a $300 rifle

Soap and water and Tom's 1/3 Mix. Never sandpaper.

Those Mosen-Finns are something special. I was lucky enough to pick this up a few years back for 400$. When I sat it next to my Mass produced Late model Russian its was like there not even the same gun or time period

I think maybe that White Death Sniper makes it even more special.

Got my M39 in a trade but would have definitely paid $600 for it. It’s got a perfect bore and 95-98% finish
