    Wow pretty neat; I want it! Thank you for posting the pictures; I don't recall ever seeing anything like it posted before. I would love to hear more information on it as well.

    Interested in buying a factory original Izhevsk PU sniper with original wartime matched scope. Long shot but a guy can dream!

    Scope is a WWI German military scope with elevation markings from 100 up to 1000. It is not correct for this mount nor this scope nor this caliber.

    Quite probably one of a kind rifle obviously built by somebody who had good access to Finnish Mosin-Nagant parts. Finnish military had some Mosin-Nagant trainers in .22 short and .22 LR, but this is not one of them.

ID:	3664247Interesting PEM mount....the lack of locking screws in/on the mount indicate it was made for the .22 small caliber. I doubt the pins go into the receiver either.
    I have a factory made PU base without pins/locking screws also made for a .22 Toz.

    all in all looks like someones wild dream creation.
    The bolt is obviously a result of somebody being extremely bored on one rainy weekend)
    Newly made base. The mount is original but unfortunately the threaded mount screw part was removed from its original location, the opening was welded shut and threaded piece shifted forward.
    Gigantic side mount screw obviously also someone's creation
    On the picture the bolt travels rearward a full 54R cartridge length meaning somebody took an existing standard issue 7.62x54r rifle and heavily modified it for .22LR use that included re barreling, custom feed ramp, magazine and bolt head.
    On a brighter note with so much weight I bet the recoil is literally non existent.

    Not a big fan of that bolt job and too bad they had to modify the mount (could've been avoided) but other that that looks like quality conversion.

    Hi,
    Take a look of this topic, you will find great pictures of Finnish training rifles 22lr
    In topic n#14 you will se how these bolts work, there is custom feed ramp, but no magazine, these rifles are single shot rifles.

    Finnish army made special tooll for reload these training rifle. These where normally made m/91 and m/27 rifles, but other models used are reported
    m/28-30, m/28 and m/39, they made these using the worn out rifle, needed modification was barrel and bolt head change.
