This is a very nice all original Swedish Model 96/38 short rifle manufactured at Carl Gustaf Stads in 1902. Chambered in 6.5x55mm Swede, this rifle has a good bore that is bright and shiny with strong rifling throughout. Mechanically, everything works just as it should. All numbered parts are matching to the rifle. This short rifle has the hard to find rear micrometer sight. It also has a threaded barrel with a flash hider screwed on. The stock is in good original condition and has not been refinished or messed with in any way. There is some darkening near the buttplate and some corrosion on the buttplate. It looks like moisture damage, but is very minimal and will probably clean up with a little work. There is a small import mark at the end of the barrel.
