JUst trying to see what the rifle I have is worth.
It's a 1915 Carl Gustafs built 1896 long rifle, ALL matching #s right down to the barrel bands and even the cleaning rod. It has the 1940s arsenal installed front sight and the decal the arsenal put on the stock for the range correction from round nosed 156 grain ball to 139 grain spitzers. The wood has a few mars, dents and dings but is in overall good shape, the bluing while not perfect (showing dulling and discolorations and fading) is 90%+ there.
The bore is immaculate and rates new as far as the I.D. disk says, and I'd have to agree with it.
Anybody have a rough idea???
Depending on the appearance f the stock, i.e. grain and coloring, $150 to maybe $300 tops.
What you can get also depends on a collector of 96's wanting the particular year production you have to fill out a collection.
