Curious if anyone has researched approximately how many of these are out there. Mine is a 1970 no maker M39. I know of at least three others. Who else has one?
Interesting. I've wondered why Panssarivarikko bothered to do that in a first place.Wasn't this marking added for export? The rifles had no maker's mark on the barrel so Panssarivarikko added the "PSV" in order to go by the numbers.
Yes, I have one and I know of one other in my area. I was talking to Dennis Kroh and Ted about these a few years ago, and they were aware of maybe 6 others. I have always treasured mine as an uncommon piece and have kept it in unfired condition. Although not a variant of the M39, if a person is collecting shank stamps, they are going to be real hard to find. Beyond that I know nothing other than what our Finn brothers have reported here. If you learn much more, please share that information with me.
