Swedish 1894 Mauser Carbine 6.5X55 All Matching No Import Marks Perfect Bore 94/14

This is one of the excellent Swedish M1894 Mauser carbines made by Carl Gustaf in 1918 as evidenced by the markings on the receiver ring. Chambered for the supremely accurate and potent 6.5X55 its said that Hitler was afraid to invade Sweden because of the superb accuracy of Swedish arms in the hands of extensively trained riflemen would cause him to pay too dearly in blood. It features a 17-1/2 barrel, sights graduated to 1600 meters, the splendid Swedish Mauser action with turned down bolt handle (factory not sporterized) (one of the most sought after actions in the world to build custom rifles on) and walnut stocks. This example retains about 75% original metal finish with most of the loss on the bottom metal and some patchy rust on the nose cap (bayonet stud and sight ears) and tiny rust spotting on top of the barrel while the bore is perfectly bright, smooth and shiny with strong, sharp rifling (we used a Hawkeye bore scope and found the microscopic circumferential tool marks evident on the rifling leads and no throat washing) and the stocks are completely sound with the average amount of handling marks for military arms such as this. It has no import markings and all serial numbers match (receiver, all sight parts, all bolt parts, bolt stop, floor plate and butt plate). The bolt face is clean and smooth with not even a hint of a primer ring. While the carbine is in average condition externally, internally it is extraordinary one almost never sees one of these with a perfect bore and bolt (its the first weve ever seen in this condition). A really nice example of a great military carbine with outstanding accuracy potential.
