Some good info here...might want to measure you barrel...if it is 18" it's looks like an M94. If it's longer, it's probably a cutdown M96 or M38 with possibly an M94 stock (every non M94 I've ever seen has the longer finger grooves on the stock). The fact that it looks like there is some muzzle beyond the front sight makes me think it may be a cut down M38 or M96.
Here's some good info for you: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Swedish_Mauser
Hope that helps.

It used to look like this, & the m94/14`s were built 1895 thru 1933......It`s just a m94/14 with the bayonet lug & the wood under it taken off.

I found this online if correct then my gun is the 94.
the M94 Carbine 17.7 inches but many of these were imported when the mininum rifle barrel length had to be 18 inches I beleive (like shotguns today) so they would actually "add" a piece to the end of the barrel to meet the restrictions which are not an issue today.

Just under 17" and 3/4

It looks like someone cut the rest of the wood off for some reason.

Thank you all for the info. I would like to know more about this gun. Like the half dollar stamp on it. What does it stand for?

That's a gauge containing information about the rifle's issue
Unfortunately sporterized miltiary rifles are not worth nearly as much as the intact ones, esp. these days. Even $200 might be optimistic for a badly cut one. It really requires that you find someone looking for an inexpensive beater or the basis for more sportization. On the plus side, it might make a very nice mountain rifle. The twist on these is usually fast and suitable for large 6.5mm bullets. They are known for punching over their weight class so to speak.

Why anyone would do that to a beautiful old rifle is beyond me, take a $1000.00 dollar rifle & turn it into a $200.00 dollar rifle.................
Mine is one of the Interarms 94 lot, Bishop stock, scope mounts drilled into the receiver. Such a shame but I suppose in 1958 they were just crappy old bolt guns from some country that never used them....
