Default Rifle grenades for the Finns?

Does anyone have info on the availability and quantity of rifle grenades for the Finns in WW2? As far as I know there were just a handful of Mauser K98k rifles with rifle grenade launching capability in Finnish use that were tested in 1943-1944.

A follow up question is did the Russians use rifle grenades? As I have understood it the Mosin Nagant rifles never had a rifle grenade launcher developed apart from some prototypes.

You should always try a quick Google first.

Using "nagant rifle grenade" as a search brought this useful pic up on page 2 or so : http://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/Fi...n-Nagant_1.JPG

plus this thread on axishistory.com : http://forum.axishistory.com/viewtopic.php?f=79&t=62589

plus this site has some words on the subject, including model numbers (VDG1930, D-32) : http://grenadelauncher.com/

Cheers
