    I have an older finnwolf with coffin bottom magazine. Like everyone here, unable to locate a spare. I am working with a local manufacturer to possibly make a magazine. Obviously not for the collectors in the group. But for those who are shooters, would there be interest in a mag or two, if he is able to manufacture? I suspect I will be responsible for the magazine spring and follower, but he thinks he may be able to manufacture the body. I don't think they will be blued. That will likely be an owner project. I suspect cost will vary depending on number. Still investigating and do not have a cost estimate yet. I cannot imagine they will be as costly as original.

    Paul, you could always sell me your Finnwolf and forget about all that trouble.

    I too would be interested in extra magazines. I have both the coffin and smooth style. Any, I can get my hands on, would be much appreciated.

    To my knowledge there were many more Finnwolfs made with the 3-shot flush magazine than the 4-shot coffin-bottom magazine. One will not fit in the receiver made for the other (although modifying the receiver might be possible). Therefore there would be more demand for the flush than the coffin. You might want to consider this if toying with the possibility of having some reproductions made.

    Agreed. I don't think I'll ever find another coffin style magazine without purchasing the entire rifle.
