    Last time I competed in one of those I was still stationed at Ft. Benning in 1997. I was shooting an M1 Garand.

    Pardon my ignorance, but are these considered a Mosin variant or a Mauser variant? The stock reminds me of a Mauser, but the magazine forward of the trigger guard looks like a Mosin.

    Mosin. They use a Mosin receiver, bolt, and magazine. The Finnish military replaced the barrel, sights, stock, and made the trigger into a 2-stage. They also shim the receiver to float the barrel.

    Yes, like bsmith918 said. They Finnish captured Russian Mosins and improved them.

    OK thanks. They are nicer looking than most Mosins I've seen.
