I actually get to go pickup my M28/30 tomorrow along with my new Akkar 300 pump 20 gauge that is made in Turkey. I can't wait to get that rifle here and start checking it out. I'll post photos asap.

Well she is home safe and sound and now comes the forensics on this rifle. First off it's still loaded with cosmoline. It's hard with age and I'm sure it was shot without being properly cleaned so much of it is baked on.

There is some minor pitting on the lower half of cleaning rod and a couple spots on the bolt. Nothing a quick buff won't clean up. The rifle is mostly in the white with the metal being about 20% to 30% blued.

The rifle was loaned to the Varsinais Suomi district civil guard, the unit is stamped with a lined out S 19847.

Varsinais Suomi is the area in dark green.

I'm taking pictures of all the mods the Fins did to this rifle. It's on an original Russian stock, so this is a very early model. The barrel is marked "Finland" up just behind the front site.

There do not appear to be any import marks on it that I can find.

The Fins modded the stock with a rear pillar and there is a metal shim that is nailed on to the stock just behind the barrel lug area.

I'll post more photos later tomorrow.

Hey Mark, Nice unit! Welcome to the Civil Guard (lol)

The FINLAND marking is most likely the import stamp. Both my M39 and M28-30 have FINLAND along with the model number and importer marked in that spot. Yours is a partial, perhaps early style.

So now you have the M27, M28-30, is there an M39 in there somewhere as well? :lol: :lol:

Very nice. Your collection is growing -- now the might M28-76 -- is that in your plan?

Someday I hope Shep, the M28/76 is the first Finn I saw and wanted but could never afford.

Notice the pillar is relatively thin, Below is a photo of the shim for the barrel block area.

Here is a photo of the barrel block shim it's used to get the action up and to float the barrel. all except the this part.

The barrel spacer is the M28/30 secret weapon, I don't know if the M39 has this but the M27 does not.
