    Ive been told this is a Vintage Finn Mosin variant sniper.

    Tag from the collectors estate states it was given to Latvia via Finland when the curtain fell. I dont know what the "250" references but if it is what he paid, that is significantly less than what I paid and certainly I hope his estate received more than $250.

    Its a very solid Schmidt and Bender. Kind of reminds me of the MC1 Kollmorgens and would stand in as a good clone for one of those.

    Optics are clear. Has a "German Point" style reticle. Elevation turret appears to be a BDC style.

    $1000.00

    This is referenced at another forum dedicated to Mosins.

    Any "Ill take it"would be subject to earliest time stamp.

    Wow what a cool piece... ttt


    Wish I knew more about them.

    My local shop put these on the "rack" and I felt they needed to be saved. "These" as there was a Wetzlar, marked SA, in a green leather case also.

    If Im out of line on pricing let me know.

    I think the Army versions had a bigger ocular than the Border Guard units.

    Similar rifle set ups.
