You can make magazines to Valmet 76 model from G3 steel magazines + using AK47 steel magazine locking tabs. ;) Picture below, 2 magazines in the middle are modified G3 magazines. Magazine on the right is original Valmet 308 magazine. http://kuvat.toiminta-ampujat.fi/albums/userpics/10006/Petra32.jpg

Your ancestors are from "Pohjanmaa" like mine from my mothers side.
Luoma is traditional name on that area like places in Kauhava and Ala-Harma. :)

This is the newest FDF pistol model: GLOCK 17 RTF-2 (9.00 PIST 2008)
- tritium sights
- 2 kg trigger pull
- new type RTF-2 frame
- 2 19 rd magazines

Pistols are not standard issue for normal personnel.
Those are used mainly by MP and officers and special forces.

I just got an offer of 2 magazines. Price was $350 each.
In my opinion price is still too high.
