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.

My Swedish Mauser m/96, mfr 1904

Overall it's in excellent condition, however the previous owner seems to have put some kind of lacquer (or something else...) on the wood, so it's not entirely in "original" condition.

Congrats on getting a Swede - can't go wrong, plus it appears to be in great shape.
Let us know how it shoots.

If you ever do decide to redo the stock, it's not that big of a project. Something like Citri-strip should get the finish off, then put a nice oil finish on it - good as new. Pure Tung oil is my favorite. Lots of great info here (and other places) in the Stock Care section on how to do those things.

I like how the overall look is, it just isn't the original finish, which I would have preferred.

I shot it years ago and it shoots wonderfully--the bore is in amazing shape.

It's a good looking rifle Jonas, I have a 1905 that's all matching. They are something to brag about!
