Model M27 Rifle : Valtions Kivaaritedhas, Jyvaskyla, 1927-1939.

Some sources describe these rifles as shortened versions of the M/24 . The M/27 standard rifle was a model unto itself, being newly designed. The barrels were all made by Tikka except for a couple of thousand (2150) made by VKT in 1931-32. The "short version" should be referred to as a M27 Muskatoon or M27 Ski Trooper. The stocks are different from the M/24, as was the hand guard. The nose cap was hinged like that of the German Kar.98AZ and carried a bayonet lug.


Features:

  • Nose cap was hinged


  • Some "retro fitted M27's had what is refereed to as "Popsicle stick" reinforcements on the nose cap

  • Early M27s had "wings" on the rear of the bolt. They were later discontinued as they caused bolt closure problems.
