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: Swedish Ljungman

I took the Ljungmans out to the range just to make sure that they were still working and to double check my reloads...as usual, decent group with a flyer. 100 yards http://i.imgur.com/IwYtA2M.jpg?1 Nice group. Just curiouse though, did you have to change out the front sight? I assume you were holdi...

Re: Ljungman value?

$650 is cheap, and the barrels are almost always in good condition. You can also get NOS barrels from Springfield Sporters. I paid $50 for a like-new barrel from them about 3 years ago. Thanks for the encouragement. I was starting to think my friend was charging me too much. Most I've seen selling ...

Re: Ljungman value?

What are the typical conditions of the Ljungman barrels as received from import? I'd think they had not seen much service since. What kind of disk marking were to be expected?
I do remember I paid the extra $20 way back then for hand picked. The specimen I got was in very good condition minimum.

Re: Ljungman value?

I know there are no extras. Condition was very good back when I had it 20 years ago. It's been in safes of two friends since then and seldom used. Don't know the condition of the metal or wood until I see it tomorrow.

Ljungman value?

Simply put, is $650 too much to pay for a Ljungman? A friend is willing to sell mine back to me for that much that I sold to another friend some 20 years ago. Values for these rifles seem to have gone up since then. Just wondering if the price is good for current market pricing?

Re: Originality of barrel

Is there any way to determine when the rebarreling took place? There are other numbers on the barrel. The stock disk that came with this rifle had a bore mark of 1. Would these disks ruteenly be changed out at rebarrel? I assume they would have a "0" mark at that time (no mark at all). Also, does an...

Re: Originality of barrel

Just checked my photos I took while it was apart. Here is the serial on the barrel. So I guess it was rebarreled?

Originality of barrel

I have a 1903 CG M96/38 rifle. How can I tell if the barrel on the rifle is the original barrel?
