Got a m28/30 from an old friend and looked at it when I got home. Has anyone ever noticed the sky being struck through with a sako gear wheel being stamped next to it. Was this done when they were sent to the army? Has anyone else seen this type of thing?

Odd 28/30, lined out Sky, re-stamped with Sako Gearwheel

There are some Civil Guard documents suggesting there were less than 1000 m/28-30 rifles marked this way in 1939 and 1940. Apparently these rifles were privately purchased by some Civil Guard districts and given to various individual Civil Guards instead of being distributed by the HQ of the Civil Guard ("Sk.Y"). By the way, what is the district (S) number of the rifle?

From a letter sent to SAKO in August 1940 that concerns batch of 165 m/28-30: "The "Sk.Y" marking shall be removed from the rifles by punching it with a line. The removal must be ensured by adding SAKO factory marking to the same location where it was added on the rifles sold to Satakunta Civil Guard District in the autumn of 1939. The SAKO branding shall be removed from the stock according to the instructions that you can agreed with Captain Eskola."
