.". Between 1941 and 1943, only 5,300 new condition Mod. 96 rifles were selected for conversion to the Mod. 41 sniper rifle. If the barrel did not gauge perfect it was replaced. [See disk ref. below] The bolt handles were bent to accommodate a scope. There were two versions- Mod. 41 and Mod. 41B. This version is the early Mod. 41, as it has the early standard adjustable 300-2000 meters sight base with a number that matches the receiver.
Rifle also comes with box of new Nosler brass and unused set of RCBS dies.
3 boxes of match ammo which would ship separate.
This beautiful rifle was manufactured by Carl Gustaf in 1908. The initials "J.V" are placed on the left side of the receiver indicating that the inspector was Capt. Jaques Virgin. The bluing is near perfect. I would characterize this rifle as NRA Excellent. There is slight handling wear on the stock. The stock is light hard wood without dents or gouges. There is handling wear and marks as the rifle is over 100 years old.
The disk on the right side of the stock contains markings consistent with the effort of the armory for conversion to a Mod. 41. The small wedge of the disk has no strike indicating that the bore is as new. On the large portion of the disk there is a mark adjacent to "0" indicating no bore erosion. There is a "0" next to "over Slag" in the second largest wedge indicating that this rifle was tested at the armory.
