M94 Sporter After

M94 Swedish Mauser


  I bought this little gem in a bundled deal (see the M43 Spanish Mauser elsewhere on this site.) I got it and the M43 Spanish for $200 total. At first glance it appeared to be a nicely sporterized M96 Swede. It was a Carl Gustaf make, 1925. The barrel had been replaced by a new sporter contoured barrel. The rear reciever had been drilled and tapped for a reciever peepsite. After a bit of examination after I got it home and placed it in the synthetic stock, I noticed the wood stock had a curious notch on the underside near the front. I noticed then that the hole for the cleaning rod of the M96 wasn't present. Then it dawned on me. I verified this reading Poyer & Kehaya's book on the Swedish rifles. The serial # was all wrong for a 1925 M96. It was a M94 carbine that had been bastardized! (sigh!). Anyways...

$100 for the rifle

$49 for the stock

$15 for the sling and sling swivels

$35 for gunsmithing (Drill/Tap)

$10 for Holden Ironsighter scope mounts (See the M96 and M38 rifles on this web page)

Total of $210, plus whatever scope I decide on, for a sharp looking rifle as well made as any modern commercial bolt gun.


The only drawback of this stock, as shown below, is that triggerguard won't fit flush with the stock. Neither will the rear receiver lug. Still, it is tight and doesn't shift. I suspect this was just the manufacturer trying to cheaply convert their M98 stock to a M96 action.
