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.

Swedish FM 23-36 trial rifle---update...it arrived!

#1 Post by Calfed » Fri Sep 28, 2018 3:55 pm

Earlier this week I noticed this at an auction. I thought it might be some kind of sporterized hack job, but found that it is actually a rare FM 23-36 Swedish

Yeap, rare ‘35 receiver to boot. What did it go for?

In checking FM23-36's on other forums, I found this rifle had apparently last been sold on Gunbroker in 2016. A member saved pictures of it from back then.

I normally promise to post better pictures after I receive a rifle that I have won at an on-line auction, but I'm not sure I'll be able to do any better than those pictures saved from the old GB sales listing.

My FM23-36 trials rifle arrived today at the FFL to begin the 10 day "cooling off" period.

Stock is in great shape, as is the bluing. bore looks great and all numbers seem to match. I grabbed a few pictures before it went into my FFL's safe

Thanks, vandle

Here is a page from "Crown Jewels"--The Mauser in Sweden" concerning the FM23-36

It lacks the thumb cut-out for stripper clips and came from the factory with a Lyman 48 sight. Barrel profile seems similar to the CG63 profile
