Strange Marking Finnish M39

Post by Phantom 778 »

While cleaning the underside of my Finnish M39 rifle, dated 1942 with a 1916 receiver, I came across this strange marking. It is the letter T contained within a triangle. This marking is NOT the Tikkakoski mark (Pre or post 1936). The triangle on the Tikkakoski mark points down. In this marking the triangle is pointing up. Also, the T looks different compared to the Tikkakoski marking. Any thoughts? Looks like more than just an inspector's mark.
