Default Swedish M41B sniper rifle

A few months ago I decided to convert one of my Swedish M96's into a faux M41B sniper rifle for use in the CMP vintage sniper match. I bought an Accumount scope base and mount and sent it off to a trusted gunsmith.

http://forums.thecmp.org/showthread.php?t=234454

Because the my smith is a great craftsman, he is busy and the process took a few months. During these few months a real M41B turned up on an online estate auction and I glommed it.

The auction pics were few and not that great and the description very spare, but I bid accordingly.

Here are the auction pics...







Description advised that it is a "Mauser Carl Gustafs 1899 Sniper Rifle".

In due time, the rifle arrived at my FFL and I got a chance to grab a few pictures before it went into the safe for the 10 day "cooling off" period.

It looks legit...

Bolt is blued and matching (body). The bolt sleeve, cocking piece and safety match each other, but not the bolt body.



There is an M55 adjustable rear sight mounted



Base and scope mount serial number match (19530) and appear to be correct for the receiver date (1899)


Stock apprear to be beech replacement (common for these rifles, I'm told) and has a single crown cartouche behind the trigger guard.



Scope and mount appear to be correct for the M41B


A few posters on other sites seem to think that all appears in order, but does anyone see anything out of place?

I love Swedes. I've always wanted one of those. The closet I've gotten is a Swedish Gun Club rifle with a Soderin set up.

I finally cooled off enough to pick up my Swedish M41B







Will attempt a trip to the range tomorrow.
