    Hello everybody!

    After a long day at work I thought I should do something more creative than falling asleep in front of the TV. So I took a couple of pictures of my 1919 Carl Gustav, and some mixed Swedish army equipment from the 30:s up to the 1960:s. Check out the old m/94 tracers from the early 40:ies... :cool:

    I´m a lousy photographer, but I hope they will be of interest.

    90 years old and still a crowd pleaser and chambered in one of the slickest cartridges ever designed. I have a nice '38 Husky myself. Thanks for the pics.

    Thanks for your kind comments and nice pics!
    It´s fun to hear that more people own and appreciate these rifles.

    Lionking: Nice collection! Beautiful rifles. You even got the flag! :D That m/38 is impressive! Have you disassembled the bolt and inspected it? If the pin´s not broken, post a couple of pics. Some of us should be able to help!
    Well, I shoot about the same. We will have find out some plausible excuse.. :D

    Husker: Which mauser carbine is in the middle? Yugo? Fun to see them compared to each other. BTW, that sling looks absolutely mint condition!

    Afy: Yes, thats a early model dummy practice grenade. The ammo is early 40:is and 50:ies ball and tracer, both m/94 and m/41.

    I will try to take more pics in the evening.

    Kind of Blued: He WILL have to use all of his winter skills... :evil: As a part of the Swedish infantry winter training you have to jump in a lake through a hole in the ice, and then stay until given permission to get up. A great experience for male bonding.

    I LOVE your trio! If Sweden had the same rules as the US I would have a m/38 and a m/94 too. Beautiful! You saved my day!

    The last time I visited a local gunsmith, arms dealer, mentor and friend of mine, he showed me his carbine m/94. All matching Obernsdorf 1895 #273. It was one of the first trial carbines made in Germany for Sweden. It came with the first shipment... I was trembling, and he understood.

    May I ask when your is made?

    Very nice.

    Here is my 1902, reworked (I refinished it after someone bent the bolt and tapped the receiver)

    To be honest I get a little sad everytime I see a customized mauser. But in your case you had a pre-bubbafied rifle that you have done a really fine job on. I like the way you have developed the original stock to a long thin beautiful one with the same lines and style as the original. You have been respectful to the work of the long gone stock makers from the town Eskilstuna.

    I know I almost sound religious about it. Perhaps a long term side effect.. =)

    Cracked Butt:
    Great pictures and wonderful rifles! Is the 41b original or assembled from parts. I believe the bolt is blued on the original. Is the SM M/55 adjustable rear sight attached?
    I love your choice of target. Barney has destroyed too many young lives to be breathing... :)

    About your restauration project: Can you find the necessary parts? If not, feel free to PM me, and I´ll try to help you. Mauser m/94 restauration warms my heart.

    Nyggis, the M41B is mostly original, don't know about the stock though- it has a different serial number, not sure if it was put together that way at a Swedish arsenal or by an Importer in the States.
    It has the M/55 Sitke sight and blued bolt. I also have the leather scope caps for it, But the leather string is broken, probably goig to take it to the local shoe reapir place to have it fixed someday. Right now it has Butler Creek flip-up lens protectors on it as I store the scope on the rifle and not in the scope can.

    As for the 94/14: I was able to track down a the front sling swivel, bayonet lug and handguard so far. I still need a unit disc, sling buckle, and sling (which is almost impossible to get over here). These parts show up on ebay occasionally, but cost way more than I'm willing to pay to complete a mismatched carbine which I just have more for fun than collector value.

    Nyggis:

    My 94/14 carbine is a 1907 Carl Gustaf, including the stock serial number. Bt some idiot sanded it at some time or another. It had a horrible thick glossy finish on it when I found it. And they had bleached out the stain. I tried to get it close to the original color which is not easy.

    My M/38 is a 1944 Husqvarana, that I think was being used as a training rifle for a youth cadet training unit or something like that. It had a canvas School Carbine sling from a M/94 School Carbine and it also has a rifle rack number disc from an old M/94 carbine.
    Plus the range data plate is mounted in a very unusual manner. It is mounted sideways. As if the student would be looking at it while the rifle was laying on the ground in front of him. Or maybe easier to read whuile upright in a rifle rack.

    I pulled the plate and the number disc off, very carefully and both appeared to have been on the rifle for a very, very long time. So they were not recently attached.


    My M/96 is a 1900 Oberndorf. It seems to have belonged to a rifle club of some sort. BUT even though the stock has a matching number it is a beech wood replacement from one of the times it was arsenal refinished at Carlsburg.
    It also has a very new barrel.
    The stock was refinished at some point in the slightly reddish tint that the rifle clubs seem to have liked.
    It has two bolts, both are Husqvarana replacements that are serial numbered to the rifle. One is a turned down bolt and the other is a straight bolt. Both headspace perfectly. It also has a standard military rear sight and (F-Ram) civilian rear dial sight . The trigger seems to have been tuned on this rifle as well.
