1908 Carl Gustaf m/1896 Swedish Mauser 6.5x55 with my own long eye relief scope mount that fits into the rear sight base. Lowest LER scope mount for a m/96 in the known world. Its also one of the most well known LER Swedish rifles in the world. From Australia to the Arctic Circle. Sling is a m/41b sniper sling. One of the most interesting rifle slings you'll ever use.

I Just bought an M/38 (1917 M/96) that really looked funny. The scope was mounted over the original rear sight similarly to the above. I concluded the scope was a pistol scope, because it worked with the long eye relief! Shows how ignorant I am! If such an adapter is used, it must be secure and not wobble - like with a front screw.

You got me a little misty eyed. A 1896 6.5x55 Carl Gustav Swedish Mauser (1901 production stamp) was my first large bore rifle. As a teenager it was all I could afford because they were selling cheap at the time. Kicking myself for selling it. Sweet shooting rifle, and accurate.

    This is the closest gun close to my house and they have always been super nice. I have bought two guns off them and sold one of mine to them.
