The circle Z with crossed cannons on the stock is a maker’s mark of Oy Ekwall Ab, which was the final sub-contractor for the Finnish stock fabrication. Assuming that the bolt matches the barrel and the stock doesn’t have any cracks, $250 is about $100 to $150 below market these days.
Thanks! Bolt and floorplate match. Not surprising buttplate doesn't. Stock is typical finn looking. Looks like it was recrowned when ordinance, has a very nice recessed crown similar to my Finn M39.

Both were total impulse buys which generally make me wary.
