A new one for me, and my second proper Finnish rifle:



1932 dated Tika, with matching bolt. At a glance it appears to have been re-stocked at some point in it's life as it has the thicker grip, re-enforced nosecap and has been spliced.

Interestingly it doesn't have the bolt wings or the groves in the receiver to accomodate them.

More photos to follow in the weekend.

While 91/30s, 91s and M39s abound, there are still always one or more M27s for sale at any given time on the auction sites. I have sold several as I upgrade. 28s and 28/30s are less often seen. 91/24s seldom.
Showed the rifle to a collector friend last night, he gave it a cursory look as mosin-nagants aren't really his thing. But when I mentioned that it had a Tikka barrel he replied:

"Really, never seen that before, I've only seen them with SIG barrels. I used to have a couple with SIG barrels" :( (He'll be referring to m91/24s of course, to him they all look alike ;) )

Finnish rifles are less common over here so I decided to snatch this one up even though I really should be saving my pennies.

I just took it out of its stock, there was a little surface rust around the forward barrel band. So I wiped that off and oiled the barrel again.

The action is a 1905 dated Izhevsk and on the underside of the barrel it is marked with 4 over 7762 any clues on what that is for? Also is the D over W on the receiver the remains of an Austrian inspection stamp?
