This is a Mosin-Nagant M27 7.62x54R Russian bolt-action rifle. This particular rifle was imported by CAI and the right-side of the barrel at the muzzle is stamped "CAI ST. ALB VT" with "M27 762R FINLAND". The top of the barrel just in front of the hex receiver has a "Tikka" (Finland) arsenal mark, which is a "T" inside a upside-down triangle. The top of the barrel is also stamped "35175" with "D" over "1939" (see photos). The finish army mark "SA" and crest stamped on the left-side and top of the receiver are not as crisp as the other stamps on the gun, but are still present (see photos). The bolt matches the gun with the handle being stamped "85175" (see photos).
The bore in the 29" barrel is shiny with crisp rifling and does not appear to have any pitting. The gun has a front blade-sight and flip-up adjustable rear sight (see photos). The gun appears to have been reblued. There is some pitting in the hex receiver and buttplate that can be seen underneath the blue. There's also some slight wear in the blue on the edges of the receiver, otherwise the metal is in good condition (see photos). The gun has a bayonet lug with a cleaning rod. There are also front and rear leather sling straps with a 1" nylon sling attached to the gun.
The gun appears to have it's original two-piece finger jointed stock, which has been nicely refinished. There are a couple of spots of what appears to be silver paint on the right-side of the grip and right-side of the stock (see photos). There is also one spot on the left-side of the stock where the gloss finish is slightly worn, otherwise the wood looks good with a nice gloss finish and no cracks (see photos). There are no cartouches stamped on the stock. The serial number stamped on the top of the buttplate does not match the gun.
We did not test-fire the gun, however it appears to be fully functional and overall in excellent condition mechanically and very good to excellent in appearance. Serial #85175. STK. #15076.
Here's another Nagant that may interest you collectors or someone that just might be looking to take this one out on the weekend for some outdoor range shooting!
