I just received this from Denny this afternoon, the pictures are crappy so I'll replace them tomorrow with better ones but wanted to get SOMETHING up on the board.

1939 Izhevsk M91/30, [SA] & 41 marked, pigskin sling collars. Small Century import marking on the underside of the barrel.

Older pre-war stock with screwed-in escutcheons, brass endcaps on the handguard. Finn matched bolt body, lineouts on the mag and buttplate. I can't WAIT to take this one to the range!

He also included 8 stripper clips, two of them are Finn marked, one Bulgarian? (circle 10?) and one or two Izhevesk marked. The rest are unmarked.

Thanks Denny, the rifle is better than your photos showed (and mine are bad, will take better pics tomorrow and replace these to do the rifle justice!)

This is the first Finn'ed rifle to be added back into my collection since the big sell-off, I'm hoping to make many more additions as I rebuild...

Thanks again Denny!

Not unless I lose my job again, and I don't think that's gonna happen with this company...

Besides the [SA], 'D' and '41' stamps, can anyone tell me if any of the other shank markings are Finnish? I'm also curious about the stock marks behind the trigger guard, are those stamps or just dings in the wood? Hard to tell so thought I'd ask...

WOW! Much better pics. That's a beauty! I don't think any of the other marks besides the [SA], 41, and "D" are Finnish. My 1941 Izhevsk has some of the same marks. Not near as many, but they are in similar places. The mark behind the trigger guard looks like a combination of stamp/ding to me. Looks to be a faded diamond, possibly a letter, and some dings. Hard to tell.

I am really not sure what all the Finns would have stamped, if anything other than what we know. Good question.

I think it is a diamond stamp and dings/compression dents in the wrist area. IIRC there are ink stamps in the mag well area.
