Originally manufactured at Carl Gustaf factory in 1901.
This series was the last and final version of the Model 1896 sniper rifle that was still in use until after WWII; however, it was held in war reserve until the 1970/80s.
The rifle is fitted with the late pattern improved short side rail with the correct two alignment pins and the three base screws. The front edge of the base has the late provisions of the front stop and adjustment screw only used on the very late production/upgraded sniper rifles.
The short side rail pattern mount is stamped serial number
(394554), and it is fitted with its matching short side rail scope mount.
The scope is complete with a set of reproduction leather lens caps. The rifle has the standard military style blade front sight, and the rear sight is the standard pattern.
All the parts are blued to include the bolt, and it is fitted the full length military stock and short handguard. The right side of the buttstock has the small brass bore condition plate.
This example looks genuine, unlike other sniper rilfes
its hard to be 100% sure
