        Remington production, obviously. Might be a captured/reworked rifle, again, can't see markings. Here; a good sampling of Finnish MN markings. Too bad it was cut, not much for a collectable Don't count them out as shooters, though. MNs will surprise most who have never tried them, with the right ammo.

            Sources vary, from no Remington or New England Westinghouse rifles left the US, to some did make it across to Imperial Russia, at least as samples. I've not actually seen any Remingtons that were reworked and marked with Finnish stamps, but given the jillion or so MNs produced and used in eastern Europe, that means nothing!
