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.

A good friend of mine inherited a swedish M96 last year but it wasn't his cup of tea......so: took a bit of time but it finally moved to my place last weekend 8-)

Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori, made in 1915.
Came with some extras: sling, front sight hood and aftermarket flash hider.

Cleaning rod was missing but luckily I still had a spare. Other than that, it's all matching numbers and in very fine condition.

Looking forward to take it to the range next week 8-)

Definitely great rifles.
I already had a M38, a bubbafied M96 (bolt and stock modified by the previous owner) and a Ljungman......this one will fit in nicely :-)

Wow, you have a very impressive collection! I have an M96, my first Swedish rifle, that I picked up a few months ago with the intention of selling it for a profit. I fell in love with it and it's staying with me now!

I also have a 1915 M96 CG. Amazing shooter, but does not like 123 grain match bullets. They seem to occasionally cross the singularity at about the 150 yard mark.

Shoots excellent, just a bit high @ 100 metres but I knew that in advance.
Already ordered a higher front sight to make aiming a bit easier and then I'm completely good to go 8-)

I like the Swedes, I have to be careful because I want to buy them all.
That is a nice one.
