    Hi gang.
    I went to the Greensboro, NC gunshow today.
    While roaming the aisles, I came upon a table with three Swedes on it. While looking at one of the two 96's, I spied an SA stamp! Whoo hoo!
    At the low price asked, I couldn't say no.
    It's a Carl Gustafs 1901. SA stamped. About 90% blue, exc. wood. Bands don't match, but the rest does.
    How scarce are Finnish M96's? I've only seen two (this being one).
    Here's some pix-
