I recently acquired a VKT M39 in a wartime stock. On the triggerguard, there is a metal band with "A10568" on it. Is this an inventory tag of some sort? Never seen this before. Thanks.

I have seen those bands before, but I am pretty certain that they have no relationship to Finland.

I once bought an old Beat to S.. Chinese Mauser once with the exact same type of aluminum band on it.

My best guess is that the importer or someone else in the food chain used them for inventory tracking.

I cant recall which importer used these, but it seems maybe it was hunters lodge? I dont know if thats right or not, but it doesnt have anything to do with Finland. A stateside addition by the importer.
