I would personally go for the Sako-barreled rifle. in the 91/30, they were WWII reworks on older recievers, and probably wont have a bunch of extra or crooked stampings on them ,not sure about the model 38 or 44. I like the Tula recievers best & older ones even better ( hexagonal reciever ) I cant say as I know a whole lot about some of the others you describe. I recently bought a few of the $35 91/30 specials from Aim, and they are all good shooters.Had matching numbers and 2 were Tulas (1930 &1939)Other one was a WWII with nasty incomplete stampings.

I don't think you'll find that any particular barrel will tend to shoot better than others. The war years 39's obviously have a bit of history to them, but are typically in fine shape re bore condition. The 69/70 models have newer barrels and likely much less use. Unless you intend to start collecting Finns, the SkY models won't mean much to you. As I recall these guys also had "excellent" VKT barreled 39's for a bit over $100. These might be the bargain of the bunch. All of these are typically great shooting rifles with one of the easier to use tangent sights. FWIW
