MFG.: Carl Gustafs
Caliber: 6.5 mm
Scope: AGA 3X65 m/44
Brass Disk: Early 2 screw 7, I/23 No. 122 ( Rifle no. 112 at the 22:th Infantry regiment belonging to the 7:th company)
Rifle has all matching serial numbers. The mount and base serial numbers do not match and none match the rifle. No import stamp.
The sniper rifle was created from specially selected m/96's, designated the m/41. About 5300 of these were made between 1941 and 1943. Three different scopes were used on the m/41; German ZF 4x90 m/41, Swedish AGA 3x65 m/42 and the Swedish AGA 3x65 m/44. There was one variant called the m/41 B. It was produced with open sights that were more elaborate than those on the M/96 or m/41, incorporating an adj. knob rather than a simple ramp and marked SM sikte m/55. The m/41 B also had a blued bolt and the designation G m/41 B along with 3 crowns on its sling. The m/41 did not have threaded muzzles like the M/96 or m/38 rifles thus m/41 was forbidden to fire blinks.
Well done Stripper, thanks for the short history lesson. Nice rifle...what do you think?
Nice rifle. I have 2 41bs. An Obie and a CG. At first I thought you had the wrong scope till re-read and saw you had a 41, not a b. Still wondering about the scope base and mount numbers not matching. I've seen quite a few 41bs and they always match. On my two the bases and mounts are matched to each other and will NOT interchange they are matched so well.
But I will admit to not knowing much about plain 41s.
i hate you.....
Very nice... My next purchase will be sweedish. Only because I accidently bought 6.5 x 55 for my Swiss K-31. Now I gotta by a gun to match my Swedish Ammo!
