This is as good as it gets when it comes to Finnish Rifles… In excellent condition and matching as it left the factory we have a scarce and hard to find 1939 SAKO made M28/30 Finnish Service Rifle. This is all matching and retains the SAKO cogwheel cartouche on the stock which is a big plus. These rifles were manufactured for the Finnish Civil Guard which was basically the reserve Army or National Guard. These folks prided themselves on marksmanship and making every shot count so the rifles that they procured were definitely an upgrade from the rifles used by the regular Army. This rifle has a mint bore and they are expertly bedded for extreme accuracy. During the war, this weapon was transferred to the regular army as the SK.Y marking was lined out.
The M 28/30 was an upgrade to the M 28 and had a much improved rear sight and an adjustable front sight which was later adopted on the Army model M 39. The 28/30 is considered to be the most accurate and highly sought after of the Finnish Nagant Rifles and they are much less common than the other variants that they used. It is much less clumsy than the M39 and if i was going to use a rifle in that war this is what I would carry. One of the finest example we have seen in over 30 years.
