Another nice example of a reworked Finn Luger. If I'm correct, the underside of your breech block has a small hole drilled in it. The one I owned did and I'm of the opinion that it was done to allow air to escape as the firing pin went forward. This was to aid ignition of the primer in cold weather by not retarding the firing pin and reducing the force of the strike. The other possible reason was to allow gasses from a punctured primer to escape.
