    Default Pictures added to: M39 Reciever with Grease Hole Question Please?

    Just looking for knowledge of what I have here. Who was maker of Receiver? No date stamped under tang, just this little "P" on the side of tang? Did the Finns "plug" the grease hole? Just wondering? I see pics online of some plugged, and some not plugged?
    It is by far the nicest M39 I have, and I think it is gonna have the richest history. Appreciate any and all feedback.

    From the pics posted, it looks to have an early Chatellerault receiver.

    Chatellerault receiver. I think the grease holes ceased to be added to the receivers after 1894 and I'm not sure who plugged them.

    I certainly agree. P in a circle with no date.

    Definitely a Chatellerault receiver. I think the grease hole production for them ceased in 1893 or early 1894 iirc. Some of the grease holes are left unplugged, or plugged in your case, with either a weld over it, or a screw like on mine. 1893 Tula M91 for reference, mine's plugged with a screw.

    1968 "late date" Finnish M39

    Thank you for your time in responding sir. I greatly appreciate the pic. I looked closer at my pics after posting them, and the plug on the grease hole is pretty well done. I can see the metal work or horizontal "tool marks" if you will; in the fine lines....... an arsenal must have done, after they plugged it..... and apparently before they blued it. I'm only speculating, but maybe the Finns did it before they blued her the last go around. Great pic...again...thanks

    That is interesting. Seen plenty of them plugged with the slot in the screw to screw it in. And seen plenty with no plug. Hard to say who did it, but a Finnish connection could be possible.
