I bought a Finnish SAKO M39, it's en route to me at the moment. Is the gauge for measuring firing pin protrusion the same one as for the Russian rifles, like the M44 etc.? That seems to be the only one I can find in online stores. I don't know if my rifle actually comes with one.

the same. Finns all began their life as Russian pattern rifles, the design wasn't changed when the Finns rebuilt them.

Yes it is an original Russian bolt. The Finns changed the barrel, sights and stock but the left the bolt alone.
