Boy if this ol girl could talk.. In 1938 they only produced 2000 of the M28/30 rifles. This was the lowest production year for any of the years this version were produced.

The m/28-30 enjoyed 7 years of production and saw over 24,420 rifles produced from official images placed contracts.


Total Contract M28/30 Production 24420

Traded for it.. It's coming cross country so I won't have it for a few weeks because of the CA 10 day waiting period. :(

Looks pretty cool though, I have more photos.

No mods for this rifle, But she'll get shot though.. They only made 2000 of these in this year. I might try and shoot her at the Boris and Natasha Shot that's coming up. BTW it would be crazy to cut up a rare Finn.

Not the clearest of photos but you'll get the idea, she a little on the white side. Once she arrives it will be the royal treatment with Militec 1 and after a good going over a date at the range with some .308 handloads. This looks to be an early M28 stock which might mean that it went through the arsenal twice. Once to convert it to a M28 and then to update and re-barrel as a M28/30. I don't see any of the SAKO marks on the stock. I'm also waiting to see if this stock is a Walnut or Birch stock. Leather sling is included but IF it's what I was told it is I'm going to have to hide it from Greg.

Lol, it isn't the sling I thought with the 2 piece straight portion, but still great regarding what we discussed :shh:

It looks like there is a Civil Guard District issue stamp, but I cannot make it out there.

Sweet unit! 1000 before mine.

BTW, what do you think of the notch in this SAKO cocking knob a got?

May have been from an M28-76, but the cut is very different from the typical diopter cut. It was Finn blued at some point. The inner face is still black.

Could have been from an M33 sniper, they had a side mounted scope.

If you look close there is a screw on the inside of the receiver and that notch could be to allow for that. It's not clear in the photo if it's modified or not.

M28 is only list to get next for my fin collection. They are in my opinion much more dainty looking than the M39s.
