Suomi Update

I got same day turnaround on the Suomi from the guys in Vernonia. They ended up replacing the bolt on it. In terms of just cycling the action, it seems to work a lot better at this point. Hopefully that will translate into fault free functionality at the range. It’s been too dang cold in the evening to take it out, so I’ll try and drag it out this weekend.

The manufacturer indicated that this is a light oil weapon. I’d ended up slathering it to get it to work, but it didn’t work dry either, so that really wasn’t the issue. Now I just have to figure out how to properly field strip this thing. Most of my rifles aren’t blowback, but this one is. Always a learning experience!!!

Until next time!!!
