If I recall right, the bolt comes off when the trigger is pulled when trying to extract the bolt.

It is a semi-auto conversion from a model m62. Not from a rk 62 76. Rk 62 76 has a stamped receiver.

Ilmarinen is old traditional finnish name.

Rimfire,

I haven´t seen parts for that weapon anywhere. I did a rough search for them too over the internet but didn´t find anything.

I´m afraid you´re right. They are hard to find...

I´ll do some digging on those models and their variants.

Thats what I thought too Bigsleeze.

It has to be a whole different design than the one in the M62 because of the M95´s compensator/flashhider.

The one on the right looks like the newest model I´ve seen. It has a cone like "hat" inside the BFD´s body that crushes the wooden planks. ...

Cabhammer has it right. The "Lottakivääri" - Lotta rifle was created from old russian 1891 rifles that were coming to their end of service lives. The barrels of these rifles were so worn that new barrels were ordered from SIG Switzerland and Venus Germany. The Civil Guard workshop made the barrel sw...

Yes, VKT is the WW2 market for the Valmet factory and the SA mark is stamped on all weapons in use by the Finnish Army during WW2. Ammo for that critter is tough to find these days... VKT stands for " V altion K ivääri t ehdas", Goverment Rifle factory in english. VKT changed to "Valtion metalliteh...
