Here the story I picked up a M39 Fin rifle, barrel was corroded, and stock was broken so I decided to make a fin sniper/target rifle but only modern.
I contacted lother walther and had them make me a barrel 27 inch target 11 degree crown chambered in original 7.62x54 R, the barrel is long chambered, I thread the barrel to 16 tpi / 60 degree as original, the made the extractor cut and shell lip with a dermal, worked well.

I made a receiver mandrill out of bar stock on the lathe then trued the receiver witch was almost perfect in the first place; fins did a hell of a job.

Ordered a tiger wood tacdriver stock from Richards micro fit gun stocks. http://www.rifle-stocks.com/

Ordered Scope mount, Allen screws, side safety and pillars from ken at Rock Solid Ind http://rocksolidind.com/products.html.

Getting a hubber trigger from Tennessee Gun Parts http://www.tngunparts.com.

I mounted the Scope mount and glass bed it for further stabilization, it did not need it but I figured why not, it is a solid mount with the side locking screw, well made, I cannot say enough about this mount so far it is the best aftermarket mount I have seen oe tried for a M39/91 it Rocks, no pun intended smile.gif.

I lapped the lugs by cutting and old barrel butting a spring in the chamber and half a shell casing to push against the bolt.

I mounted a Falcon Optics Merlin 10x42T Tactical Rifle Scope, I got from Mel at Sniper central for $280.00
http://www.snipercen....com/falcon.htm

This scope to me is on par with the Super sniper I like the turret adjustments and retical better and it comes with side focus for less the super sniper.
So now I am waiting for the stock from Richards It cost me $225.00 for the 1 inch pad and 1 inch barrel channel









mount is great I glass bed it , it is solid as advertised





scope from sniper central Merlin Falcon







the stock is tacdriver tigerwood from richards micro fit, will be here in a week or so, also got some other parts coming from Rock Soild Ind: bolt handle, side safety and pillers as well as alan bolts

Stock is simular to this but tiger wood

Hey Sniper, I take it you are back stateside? If so, welcome home! Good to have you back cranking out sporters to inspire the lethargic ones like me. (not really lethargic, just too busy with life to devote the time I'd like to my hobby)
