8mm Mauser Blindee Mosin Question

Did the Finnish or Poland ever get any of the Blindee altered Mosins. I have found very little on these Mosins. The Mosin site has very nice photos of one that has M91 bands.
One old source from a past web site I copied to paper noted that some may have had Gew front bands and bayonet lugs. But I have found nothing on the web recently.
Could these have been the orginal pattern for the Polish 91/98/25 carbine. I also found that there was a Polish 91/98/24 but a complete discription is lacking.

Are there any new photos or info out there?

There is some speculation about Belgians converting them for SCW, but it's hard to say. This is a very interesting topic, one of which I will be following as well as I am also interested in more 8mm Blindee information as well! But if indeed they were sent to Spain, why aren't more seen, and why didn't they come in to the US also like other SCW Mosin related rifles did that we see here in the states now?
The only place I had ever seen one, was online in pictures. And on's site with info there. Until today that is..... In addition, there is a seller out of Spokane (Spo-can haha) WA that is selling Blindee barreled actions on a large and popular gun auction website. Saw one listed last week, but I have never obtained one of the barreled actions.
