This is a Model 96 Swedish Mauser. There’s good news and bad news about this rifle. Bad news first: With its aftermarket sporter stock it’s no longer collectible, unless the original is floating around somewhere at home. The good news: It’s likely a terrific shooter, and one of the better Mausers ever made. Both Carl Gustafs Stad Gevärsfaktori (rough translation: Carl Gustafs town rifle factory) and Husquavarna, who makes chainsaws today, built these rifles from the late 1890s to 1962. The Swedish Mausers are known for their accuracy, their high-quality steel, and their overall workmanship.
