We present a beautiful Carl Gustaf bolt action rifle chambered in 6.5X55 Swedish.
This rifle is in nice condition, with a 30 inch barrel and matching numbers. The wood stock and forearm are in nice overall condition with crowns and markings being very visible stamped on wood and metal finishes, including the brass disk.
The bore is in good condition as pictured and the action functions as it should.
"The Model 1896 rifle in 6.5×55mm was adopted in 1896 for infantry use, replacing the Model 1867–1889 Remington rolling block rifle in 8×58mmR Danish Krag. Swedish production (under license) started in 1898 at Carl Gustafs, but additional rifles were produced by Mauser during 1899 and 1900 because of delays in shipping additional production machinery from Germany to Sweden.
Standard production at Carl Gustafs continued until 1925, but approximately 18,000 m/96 rifles were manufactured by Husqvarna Vapenfabriks AB during World War II for civilian marksmanship training. Mauser produced 40,000 m/1896 long rifles between 1899 and 1900, Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori 475,000 m/1896 between 1896 and 1932 and Husqvarna Vapenfabriks AB 20,000 m/1896 between 1942 and 1944. Giving a total of 535,000 m/96 long rifles."
This is a well taken care of rifle, a very nice military piece to add to your collection.
