Well, the board is either fixed, or it's going to run terribly. Cross your fingers and hope for the best. I'm at my technical limit right now.

Re: CARL GUSTAFSSTADS GEVARSFAKTORI 1919 w/Elite 101 sights.

At this point I really don't care. I like the rifle. It shoots well and does not tear up my shoulder. The bore is in very good shape and the fired brass looks great. Anyway, as I have read several sage members say before, buy the rifle, not the story. You have a great day, sir. BTW, where in the he...

Re: CARL GUSTAFSSTADS GEVARSFAKTORI 1919 w/Elite 101 sights.

The FSR m/96s were normally built on rifles with unthreaded muzzles. The Swedes threaded the muzzles in 1955. Again with Swedes anything is possible but this has been discussed before and a Swedish member at another forum stated that there were too many rifles around with standard muzzles, why use o...

Re: CARL GUSTAFSSTADS GEVARSFAKTORI 1919 w/Elite 101 sights.

This site by a very well known Swede collector is as good a place to start learning as anywhere. A copy of Crown Jewels, The Mauser in Sweden by Dana Jones is also needed though these can get pricey. The Poyer book you see on Ebay is full of errors. Makes for good wiping though. http://dutchman.rebo...

Re: CARL GUSTAFSSTADS GEVARSFAKTORI 1919 w/Elite 101 sights.

I'm pretty sure yours is Swedish though you never really know. I have no idea why a civilian shooter would opt for a rifle with a counter bored barrel though anything is possible. The Swedes never fought a war, used corrosive primers except in the very beginning of use and were very meticulous about...

I've never seen a counter bored m/96 much less one set up for FSR.

Re: Swedish Carl Gustafs M/41B sniper rifle

Should be a crown with a letter under it normally an S on the stock behind the trigger guard, most of the time on the barrel near where it meets the receiver under the wood. Scope, mount, etc. last worked on in 1969. The best WWII bolt action sniper rifle hands down, you'll never think as highly of ...

Re: '96 long rifle at 500 yards

M/94s true, according to Crown Jewels in 1894 Mauser Oberndorf built an addition to their factory in order to produce the Swedes. They had a huge Turkish contract to fill as well as others and were running at full capacity.

Re: '96 long rifle at 500 yards

Rapidbob is welcome to use whatever load melts his butter, me, I'll stay under the powder manufacturers recommendations of 46.3 gr. maximum for a 139-142 grain bullet.

I don't know what a 110 grain bullet has to do with this thread, Rapidbob says he's using 139 grain PPU

Re: '96 long rifle at 500 yards

Although Mauser Oberndorf made a few earlier prototypes like the m/95 the first licensed production m/96s were built at the Carl Gustafs arsenal in 1898. Serial number 1 was a Carl Gustafs made rifle. Mauser Oberndorf supplemented Swedish production in 1899 and 1900 starting around serial number 20,...

Re: '96 long rifle at 500 yards

50 grains is the max safe load and can be found on many sites. 47 grains is my best long range load and also gives very good case life. The posted "Lawyer" loads today are way down due to the "weak" '96 actions baloney on the web. I have used this load since the 70's and so do my clubs members in t...

Re: '96 long rifle at 500 yards

Uh......47 grains of 4831 is above IMR's recommended maximum. :naughty: Always be careful with these old rifles, while Swedish steel might have been the best in the world I've always leaned towards the lower end of recommended loads with pretty good success out to 700 yards with my m/41B.

Beware, fake Swedish stamps for sale on Ebay

These stamps have been the scourge of German K98 collectors for years, unscrupulous sellers try to fool the novice collector by applying stamps to rifles thus turning the $300 K98k into something more valuable. Lo and behold this seller from Poland is selling his fake wares now with a Swedish flavor...

For $100 I would have bought it but that Interarms Co. G33/50 still looks like ****. :puke-huge: The stock alone is worth far more.

I've never seen an Interarms G33/50 roll mark that was well done. Half still have obvious traces of the original stamps that weren't completely ground off. Put me down as a Swede collector snob. :shhh:
