Note from JWR:

Today is the last day to place a bid in the SurvivalBlog benefit auction, for a scarce pre-1899 antique Finnish M39 Mosin Nagant rifle with bayonet from my personal collection. This rifle was rebarreled by Valmet during WWII, and is in excellent condition. It comes with a replica bayonet, original sling, and original muzzle cap. Since the receiver for this rifle was made in 1898, it can be mailed directly to the winning bidder’s doorstep, with no FFL paperwork! When last we checked, the high bid was at $520. The auction ends at midnight tonight, Eastern time. (9 p.m., Pacific time.) Just e-mail us your bid.
