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: Collection goals, all by accident

I don't care much for Swedish Mausers, German ones either.

Re: CG '96 Swede, 1911 with Unit Disk in stock

Nice, what year? I also have an 1899 Obie 38/96 but the 96s are my true loves.

Re: CG '96 Swede, 1911 with Unit Disk in stock

One thing about elm is it's open grain which I don't see in lloydham's stock. If that's his Husky built m/96 it will have a beech stock if original. Elm was only used from 1915 to 1917. Beech was standard after that. Beech is also seen on many rifles with replacement stocks Here's some good info fro...

Here's an elm stock, some people might think it's oak, very coarse, open grain and heavy. lloydiam's stock looks like beech.

Re: CG '96 Swede, 1911 with Unit Disk in stock

I think as a whole the civilian FSR Husqvarna m/96s made in 43 and 44 were made to tighter tolerances than the CG made for military counterparts. That doesn't mean that there aren't some fine shooters among the CGs. I also have a completely original military 1924 CG m/96 that has gone under m.o.a. a...

I have a 1908 CG FSR m/96 I'll put up against any Husky.

Re: CG '96 Swede, 1911 with Unit Disk in stock

Husqvarna made something like 13,000 m/96s for the FSR in 1943 and 1944. They were very well made and are considered among the most accurate. Husqvarna also supplied the armories with replacement receivers which often turn up on older m/96s and can be identified by the serial numbers being out of se...

Re: 1903 Carl Gustaf still kicking butt!

The 96s were converted to 38s from 1937 to 1940. Husqvarna then came out with the purpose made 38s in 41. Something like 55,000 96s were converted.

Re: 1903 Carl Gustaf still kicking butt!

Just so you know the Vasteras sight that bottoms out at 250 meters is calibrated for the m/38s. The one calibrated for the m/96s is much rarer and bottoms out at 100 meters. Your load is also well above IMR's recommended maximum for 4895 of 39.6 grains for 6.5X55. http://www.hodgdonreloading.com/dat...

Re: Something fishy in K98s

I love that Sweaty Ben calls the Banner a prototype then says the RC serial number on the stock is a rack number. That's getting into Mitchell's territory. At least he's getting the hint that the door buster cupped butt plates go on the later K98ks this time. I wonder if any of them show up on any o...

Re: 96' 1899 Carl Gustaf

I've never seen a rifle stamped with a crown and letter on the barrel without the same crown letter stamp on the stock. No doubt the stock was stamped to indicate this. I have an armorer's stock with three crowns, one with a crown and letter C, no numbers in the channel or on the hand guard. I have ...

A single plain crown is a normal inspection. Nothing major done.

Re: 96' 1899 Carl Gustaf

Crown with a letter on it shows a major rework, usually a new barrel. When you take the stock off and the same stamp is on the barrel you will know for sure.
