SWEDISH 1896 LONG RIFLE  Guns > Rifles > Military Misc. Rifles Non-US > Other
Description: From a private collection is a beautiful Swedish Model 1896 in 6.5x55mm. The Swedes are known for their engineering prowess and construction quality, and this Mauser-based design is a classic example of the long-lost Old World standard of superior craftsmanship. I, and others as well, think that this rifle compares favorably in its quality of construction to some of the modern day custom rifles that sell for $1000's. This particular example still has all its bluing--without any rust or pitting or shiny spots. The wood is a rich walnut color with the matching wood grain showing clearly through on both stock and handguard. It comes with its own cleaning rod and the brass regimental tag on the butt stock. These rifles are known for their accuracy and reliability, and on top of that they fire the mild-recoiling, flat-shooting 6.5x55mm round. These are highly collectible rifles now, but not very easy to find, especially in this condition. These are real shooters as well as desirable collector pieces. No one's collection is complete without a Swedish Model 96. I've included a couple of photos from a recent range session indicating the potential of this rifle. The photos are to indicate what a very average shot (me) using iron sights at a moderate range can do with practice quality ammunition. I am no marksman; quite the contrary. And my eyes are failing with age. So, you should look on these results as possibly the worst possible. Better shooters will have much better results than I. These pictures are only a very rough indication of the rifle's potential.
