    It's a long infantry m/91-there was little difference in length between the Dragoon and the m91/30 as the latter was effectively a modernized version of the Dragoon-Sestroryetsk ceased making the MN in 1918.

    Iconic rifles!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    'SA' is the Finnish Army property mark-means it was owned by them after being used by the Russians-Finland had been part of the Russian empire prior to 1918-they inherited some rifles and bought others that had been captured during WW1-many were rebuilt into later model Finnish rifles (m/27, m/28, m/39 and m/91-see below example using a Sestroryetsk 1917 receiver).

    Yes, you have a Finn capture M91 Mosin. Many were in Finland (along with a large number of Japanese Type 30 rifles) on issue to Imperial Russian forces. When the Grand Duchey of Finland separated from Russia during the Imperial collapse in 1917 they acquired thousands for their own use. The Finnish Mosins saw their first use in the bloody Finnish Civil War starting in May of 1918 and were used to arm Finn forces as late as the 1980s. They saw heavy use during 1939's Winter War when the Soviets invaded Finland, the Continuation War in the Fall of 1941 and The Lapland War when Finland was forced by the Soviets to drive their former ally, Nazi Germany, out of Finland at the end of the Continuation War in 1945.
