I´ve asked this once before (Collector´s forum), but some more information will be needed. These rifles were lent from the Army to the Civil Guards and marked with SS and serial number. SS-number has been on the right side of the barrel shank in most of the cases I´ve seen.

The question is: On what kind of rifles you have seen this marking?

I have it on:
1. Tikka m/91 heavy barrel
2. Westinghouse m/91

sako92s

Westinghouse m/91

Alsky


I have looked at my M91 length rifles and found the double SS serial # on two of them and they are:

1- M91 1926 Tikka

2- M91 1926 Tikka

Tuco

I have it on the following:
2 Tikka M91's dated 1926
2 M91-30's both 1930's dated and Russian made
3 US made M91's

Hammer

M91 1917 Remington, has two SS numbers with one lined out
M91 No Maker or Date just Serial number and SS number on shank

I have a friend with a Sestroryetsk M91 marked with SS number in a Finn stock. It is also marked "Deutschland" on the receiver.

So, it seems that SS+number has been stamped mostly on m/91 rifles. Tuco´s m/91-30s are the only exception so far.

I didn't see this question posted on the old board.

I have a 1907 Sestroryetsk M91 that is SS stamped on the right bbl shank.

M28 in ski stock. "S's" are above the serial number on the right barrel shank, number is lined-out. Both bolt and barrel were re-numbered and both sets match. The same number lined-out on both.

I would assume this would have been a reverse lending from the Civil Guard to the Army? This may not be what you are referring to though.

I have marking(without ss prefix) on sky m/39.:confused:
Number is 120215.
We're only looking for Finnish rifles with a Civil Guard district number preceded by an "SS" prefix. This is different than the serial number of the rifle. Typically it is stamped on the side of the barrel or receiver along the woodline.

Remington M1891 in original stock.

This rifle also had a unit stock disk at one time but
has been replaced with a wooden plug filler.

Civil Guard District Number : #SS39685

This number is, I think, on the right place and not a serial. Prefix is missing.
This m/39 S.K.y is hand picked from the FDF depot so marking is not a "exporters serial" or something put afterwards.
