The Finnish Army used a number of weapons in the War Years. These included firearms of Finnish manufacture as well as many from other nations; however, the most common weapon in the hands of the SA was the Finnish manufactured Mosin Nagant rifle. There are many models of the Finnish Mosin Nagant but the most commonly seen in the years 1939-44 were the M91 (maybe the most common), the m24 Civil Guard Rifle, the M27 Army Rifle, the M28 Civil Guard Rifle, the M28/30 Civil Guard Rifle, and the M39 Service Rifle (41-44). Any of these Finnish made Mosin Nagants will be accepted for use without further approval from the Weapons Committee. The Russian M91 is also accepted, as it looks just like the Finn overall and was used in its own right. Russian manufactured Mosin Nagants, with the exception of the M91, will need to be approved on a case by case basis by the Weapons Committee. You will need a proper sling for your rifle
