Offered for sale is this Swedish Model 38 with matching bolt & began life specifically as an M.38 manufactured by Husqvarna Vapenfabriks Aktiebolag in 1942 as seen stamped on the receiver & was not part of the refurbishment program whereby M.96 rifles were arsenal converted as part of the trend toward shorter service rifles & became designated as the M94/38 as this was done in 1938.
Thye M.38 is easily identified by the bent bolt as opposed to the straight handles on previous models.
These rifles were used by all arms of the Swedish military during WW2, along with the Finnish Army in their war(s) against the USSR.
This example is in good overall condition as can be seen in the photos. The wood is in better than average condition but does have some of the usual markings from service life. The metal work is clean & although much of the original bluing is gone, it has a nice even patina present.
If you look carefully you can see it was tapped for a scope at some stage in its life but has been rectified well back to original condition & this is represented in the asking price.
Stock disc on these rifles provides details of the condition of the rifle according to the armourers indicating this in very good condition. More information can be found at: http://dutchman.rebooty.com/disc.html
This is a very good example of these popular military surplus rifles which don’t have an awful recoil & are known for their accuracy.
