Any stock discs found on M24's, M28's, or M28/30's are also incorrect because the discs were only used by the Finnish army, not the Civil Guard.



The only exception to the above are the post-war zinc stock discs that are all from the same artillery unit and go something like this: "PSTO KAR PR".

Anyway, good score!
Did not come locally. Came from a seller in Alabama. I wish I could find rifles like this locally.

They're around. We had Roses Dept stores around here as well - before my collecting time, unfortunately. But there have been some nice milsurps of all types that pop up for sale.

BTW - Welcome to the Water Cooler.
You may live to regret that access, though

Well thank you! Yes I once bought a rifle from gentleman who still had the original receipt from Roses for $49.99. As it was an antique 1929 Tikka M27, I paid substantially more than that...

Interestingly, most of the M39s I’ve seen with post-war stock disks have been VKTs. I don’t know whether there is a reason for that. I try to buy them whenever I find them, subject to a reasonable price of course. Both of mine are VKTs (1941 and 1944) and built on antique receivers.

Andy, I checked my database due to my underlying suspicions that this was indeed the case. However, my databases on Sako and VKT show the following breakdown on post war discs

Sako:10
VKT: 9
Late Date: 1

1968: 301818. My notes on the rifle say "Zinc stock disc marked 1/16"
