Those Finnish Mosins use old actions. Some are antiques.

AK counts. Type 2 receivers still get machined out there for M43 caliber, and that's basically the original firearm westerners think of. The clock for it doesn't really start at 1947 though, it didn't become something usable until 1949, and didn't really get mass produced until the very early 50s. My father's issued AK-47 was stamped 1951. AKMs are arguably a deep modification, Soviets didn't have much experience cold stamping non pistol calibers prior and there were many issues to work out. Not sure if that's what was meant by continuous unchanged production.

The Mosin rifles went through many changes. Arguably the Stalin era modifications changed enough that it's difficult to call the rifle unchanged continuously produced.

So, milled M43 AKs are still made, basically without any change whatsoever. I'd argue that there are more of those made worldwide today than 5.45mm, as the Soviets have very limited production of that going in light of the millions of 74Ms in storage. Very few other countries adopted it - just a few of the more advanced CIS states - who have large stores but limited to no production capability of their own.

Browning SA22, been in production since 1914. I hadn't even heard of it until I recently bought one.

That is limited to "cartridge rifle" so the Brown Bess still beats it.

The 39 went into production in 1921, a continuous production of 97 years. I'm not sure it's predecessor counts. It had a different model number, different reciever, different magazine, and different method of loading the magazine.
Hence, Brown Bess still wins at 116 years.

I think it may have been mentioned, but the S&W model 10 has been in continuous production since 1899 until today. I don't know enough about them to say if the variants over the years are sufficiently changed to consider them different guns. But that is 119 years of production. Though not a military service arm (today anyway, I think a few countries used some of them, at least in a secondary capacity). That might be up there for pistols.

S&W themselves consider it to be in continuous production since 1899 . Worst case of pickieness , would still date to 1902 .
