Many of the rifles captured by the Finns were in at least good condition and in some cases in like new condition. The old phrase of only dropped once comes to mind here. As this was the case a large number of these rifles were sent directly into Finnish service during the Finnish wars of 1939-40, 1941-44, and 1944-45. It was not at all uncommon to see M91/30's in the hands of front line Finnish troops, although the M91/30 was not seen in the same numbers as the M91 rifle. A number of these issued rifles were nothing more than standard Soviet versions, as there was no need for the Finns to rework or take action to repair these rifles.
