2 Mosins Im not sure of

Just aquired 2 mosins im not sure of, they look to be straight out model 91's but the front sights look weird and the bayonet attachment looks like one that uses the sword size bayonets, they dont slide over the barrel tip like the 91/30. There is a groove that something slides into. One is dated 1927 and the other is 1932, can anyone help on what and where i could find some bayonets? thanks in advance.

When you mentioned weird front sights and bayonet lugs, the first thing to come to mind is that they may be Finn model 27 or 28. Without more information about markings on the receiver and barrel, or pictures, it's kinda hard to tell.
Google images for those two model numbers and see if the pictures look like what you have.
Wish I didn't know now what I didn't know then.
