Can't say I disagree with you. What's the point of having an 03 if organizations like the CMP do this.

Noticed that as well when I saw the movie recently, which I wasn't particularly impressed by. Mr. Jackson probably liked the way it looked.

Neat stuff, learned something new here once again. The only one that seems to offer any potential is the laminate. Worked for the Germans and the Soviets right?

Used to own one of these. Sold it due to the fact that I don't reload. Does anyone actually make new production ammo for it?

That would make too much sense. Since I moved to Virginia I have been amazed by the contrast between rural and urban. Once the house of delegates is lost all bets are off.

I used to own one of the .380 conversions and eventually sold it. I jumped on the opportunity to acquire this piece as I am a Finn collector and only know of a couple other examples in the states.

Thanks for the info in your two responses. From my experience, every Finnish used Swedish Browning M/07 I've seen came from I26. I'm beginning to wonder if there is some kind of significance to that.

I owned a Blue Sky Quality Hardware and had no complaints. The rifles got a bad rap, but I agree the import mark isn't nearly as horrible as the dot matrixes companies like CAI use now.

Neat variant and great find. I, like others, would most likely have passed it by. Especially with the stock the way it is. Thanks for sharing and teaching me something I didn't know about Arisaka's.

Thanks for the info. I've seen the SA marking on Finnish used Carcano bayonets, although I can't recall seeing it on M27, 28, M28/30, or M39 bayonets. There are of course a few rare M91/30 and M91...
