At a gunshow yesterday here in MA I lucked into what is truly a good find. On a table laden with very nice condition Japanese rifles was this out of place looking 28/30. It's dated 1934 on the barrel but the tang date is 1898 Tula (98r). In the barrel channel just above the front sling slot is a hole caused by the necessity to deepen that M91 stock channel to allow for the more massive 28/30 barrel. Is that correct ? Had the dealer known it was an antique we wouldn't have had to swap papers. The importer is one I'm not familiar with, Marathon Prod. Inc. The barrel is also stamped Finland. Both of these stampings are small and at the muzzle.
