I am assuming your rifle is a 40s era Tikka barreled one right? That receiver was probably once on a M91/24 or M28. It could have been from an early M91 that was civil guard marked. They are not common, and seen less than regular Army marked ones. In my opinion.

As best as I have been able to find out the first mark is either a stock makers mark or some sort of acceptance mark on early Finnish M91's. It appears on the left rear buttstock on a few M24's I have seen. Check to see if the barrel channel has been inletted for a larger barrel, it would be interesting to know if you have a M24 stock. The top sling is for a PPSH, the bottom sling is a wartime M38 sling with the original large dog collars. That bottom sling is a tough find and usually go for a premium, great grab on that!

I almost bought that MN sling. It has a brass buckle. Interesting, I thought it looked Polish. I saw the SVT/PPSH sling in the same bin with the Russian MN slings. $10 each as I recall.
yeah. He gave them to me for $15 for the two.
The reciever is undated with a tula hammer. Is there any clue as to a yperiod when tula didn't date their recievers?
