"SA" in a square is "Suomen Armeija" or "Finnish Army", and indicates a Finnish captured rifle. It's one of the few ways you'll find a post-revolution, pre-'68 (no import markings) rifle in this country.

Check for other markings in the Finnish section at Mosinnagant.net, starting here...

The "circled k" mark should mean that this rifle passed accuracy testing ("kuchnost"), while the lower-case "n" is actually a Cyrillic "p", showing that the barrel was proofed ("proba").
