Finnish SA Marked Swedish Browning M/07

Here are some pictures of one of my most recent acquisitions, a Finnish marked Browning Model 1907. This pistol was most likely brought to Finland by the Swedish volunteer force during the Winter War. When they returned home the following year they left their weapons (Swedish M96 Mausers, BAR's, M1907's, and others) for the Finnish Army. After that, they were considered to be Finnish property. Something around 772 M/07 pistols in service with the Finnish Army in 1944, but this number had dropped in half by the 1950's.
