The rifle in the foreground seems to be infantry rifle m/91 and the one used by shooter behind it military rifle m/28.

Thank you, Jarkko

Both. Starting from the shooter closest to photographer - Parabellum with about 4-inch barrel, impossible to say caliber for sure. 2nd and 3rd closest shooters both have Lahti L-35. 4th and 5th shooters seem to have Parabellum pistols. It is impossible to say for sure what rest of the shooters further back have.

The basic weapon is German World War 1 era flare pistol. As far as equipment attached it to is concerned - no idea beyond photo capture telling that this is some sort of measuring-version of flare-gun.

The Wehrmacht term I believe was "Einspanneinrichtung zur Leuchtpistole" with a spirit level attached to the barrel, "Doppelgelenkbaumschraube" to screw the device into e.g. a suitable tree and "Einspannklaue" to attach the flare gun to the screw or a surveying tripod.

All three photos show the same individual soldier and presumably the same individual rifle, which is military rifle m/28-30.

Thank you very much for your reply, Jarkko

It is very difficult to me differenciate between the different models of Finnish Mosin-Nagant rifles....
