Not alluring with its straight stock of plain birch, the Swede at least made reasonable groups with its neglected barrel. Its muzzle was tapped for a flash suppressor.

Both the turn-over safety and the extension on the cocking piece were nicely checkered. All the metal and wood on this rifle was sound, but the bore looked worse than it shot.
This round brass disk on the bolt side of the stock indicates bore diameter and throat wear. No triangle mark representsŻa new barrel. Top right, the 1 designates slight wear, 2 more wear, and 3 is the most wear permitted before barrel replacement, as the triangle designates for this rifle.
The stock appeared to have been refinished. note the darker, older finish within the finger groove on the forend. we liked the turned-down bolt, but didnít much care for the cock-on- closing feature.
This is a small- ring Mauser. The 6.5 caliber is still popular today, and ammo is no problem.
