Hello!

In early 1919 Finland bought 8000 German M98a carbines and bayonets from France. Weapons were sold (mainly to Poland 1924).

In 1943-44 Finnish army acquired 600 German 98k with rifle grenade launchers for testing. Testing finished in 1945. 98k rifles left behind by the German troops operating in Finland were handed over to Soviets (terms of the armistice).
