The Lahti L-35 pistol was adopted by the Finnish military with the intention of it replacing the Luger, although production was never great enough to accomplish that goal. Early in its production, a couple of special target models were made for field shooting use, and this is one of them (serial number 052). It has a much longer barrel than normal, extended sight radius (your choice of aperture or open notch sights), and a detachable buttstock with a very interesting design of bipod. A door in the side of the stock allows storage of spare sight parts, cleaning gear, and a spare magazine. Truly a unique pistol – thanks to Sako for giving me access to film this example from their factory museum!
