    I would look at the WTS forum on this site or from one of the many site sponsors like empire arms.

    One of the best places to get a good M39 is PAT BURNS

    I'd also recommend Empire Arms, but their supply is pretty sparse right now. Hopefully they have more to put up, but right now they've only got two VKTs listed.

    I recently got one from SOG - also a VKT, which they have listed for $229.99. However, SOG is a crap shoot - you don't get to see the individual rifle, so you could get anything.

    The web site that ij70 is talking about is Pat Burns. I have got 4 very nice M39 from them. They have my vote.

    I, too would use this forum. My girlfriend bought me a M39 from the pat burns collection. It was advertised as having an excellent bore. The lands were very worn and rounded, and a little frosty. It does not shoot as well as my others.

    I bought a Finn 39 from Burns (Milstuff) also ,It was the first and only time I asked for my money back on a firearms sale. Poor bore was stated as mint and other issues.After some reluctance was able to get my money back

    I have three from Pat Burns. 1968, 1969, and 1970 late date m39s. All bores were described as "new", and all rifles were descibed as unissued. All three were minty rifles, exactly as described. They definitely did not come cheap, especially the 1969. However, I did get exactly what I wanted. One more to go (1967).

    It is possible that I am wrong, but I think you bought your stuff from wrong Burns.

    Pat Burns have been selling M39 from gunsnammo website for years now. I have no idea about this Milstuff outfit that you mentioned.

    I would guess, there are some that don't recall that the above mentioned vendor, was once a Gunboard sponser. But they left owing a unpaid balance. Am I wrong in thinking that maybe they don't deserve so much free advertising on this forum? Considering we have a long time sponser paying to make this forum avalible to us, that sells M39's.

    I don't know anything about that.

    The question was: Where do I buy M39?
    Answer:
    .The Trader
    .Empire Arms
    .Gunbroker (or any other online auction of your preference)
    .gunsnammo

    If you can add to the list, please do.

    Milstuff is the name Pat Burns uses on Gunbroker. Bought plenty from Pat Burns and from her previous incarnation Wholesale Guns. Spent a pleasant couple hours talking and going through rifles at the shop they had in Islandia, NY. Never been dissapointed.

    SOG has a nice selection right now, though you have to buy them "sight unseen". I am very pleased with the Vkt I purchased a couple months back, with a nice Sako stock and pristine bore. However, everyone won't necessarily have the same good experience.

    I bought mine from Pat Burns, really nice wartime flaming stock. Lately her stock seems to be sparse, but I guess just have to keep your ear to the ground

    I'm real pleased with my SOG VKT as well. Nice bore, nice correct wartime stock, and a hang tag. I really haven't seen a bad one posted - for what that's worth.

    I bought a nice antique tigerstriped 1968 from Pat a few years ago. What she described was exactly what I got. At the time, Empire had none, antique or otherwise, in stock.
