    Thanks, I think it has alot of character. Although the front and rear are metal coated the whole thing is extremely light. It can easily be carried with one hand.

    Cheers Jan

    Yes it was. Apparently it was used during the fighting 1941-44 as it was part of a hidden cach to be used if the Sovjets invaded Finland after the peace treaty. The cache was found near Lahti Finland a couple of years ago. There were five of these sleds packed with guns and ammo.
