Been looking at the Swedish Mausers and was wondering what everyone else thought of them. I see that SAMCO has barreled actions in the $170 range and Numrich has stocks for about $50. If I put the two together am I still ahead of the games? How do they shoot and what's ammo availablility like?

I got a mismatch Swede for $200.  I know I paid too much but I couldn't help myself.

You still need butt plate, front and rear bands, rear leaf sight, cleaning rod, maybe front post.  It might need trigger housing and magazine, don't know what comes w/ barreled action.   You might be better off with buying one complete.

Try sarcoinc dot com.  Mismatch starting at $225.  

By the way Cole distributing has ammo for a decent price.  The brass is reloadable.

Geez...bought my completely matched M96 (1917 Carl Gustaf) for $250.00 in absolutely mint condition.  Awesome rifle. The best made Mausers. Look for an all matching piece; while they're still pretty cheap.

$250!!  There is a matching Swede at a store near me for I think $300- $350.  Can't remember exactly.   I only hear stories of good prices.

Yeah, methinks the days of cheap swedes in good shape have passed

I was beginning to get a chubby when I found a website this morning with matching-parts swedes for $170, but then I noticed the website hadn't been updated since '99 and the phone numbers and email addy didn't work

Was that great southern arms? I found their site a few months ago and got all hot and bothered until I noticed the last time it was updated. Doh! I have one I bought from Dennis at empirearms last month, set me back $250 Model 96B 90% matching except for stock and buttplate on a '00 Oberndorf.  Not too many cheap swedes around anymore.
