I have that setup.  What info are you looking for specifically?  The design follows the original Colt's pattern with different barrel threads and some other differences on the internals, a lighter barrel and higher rate of fire.   Effectively identical to the Colt MG52 without water.  There is much more info on the MG52 than the Finn gun that you have.  Production on these was very small, if I recall in the hundreds.   There is much info in a three volume set of books by Markku Palokangas.  It's written in Finnish, but there are lots of pics.and occasional English subtitles.
