Lahti-Saloranta LS/26 - 7.62x53mmR

The Lahti-Saloranta M/26 (alternatively LS/26) is a light machine gun (though often referred as "pikakivääri" (automatic rifle) in Finnish service) which was designed by Aimo Lahti and Arvo Saloranta in 1926. The weapon is able to fire in both fully automatic and semi-automatic modes. The adopted/mass-produced LS/26 fed from 20-round box magazines; the later LS/26-32 variant could also accept a 75-round pan magazine, though these do not appear to have been issued to infantry in any significant numbers.
