Default Swedish M41 sniper rifle

A few year back, the vintage leather cheek piece was approved for use with the Swedish M41B sniper rifle. Anyone know if this is still the case?

Thanks.

I have been shooting with a faithful replica for the last few years.

Great, thanks Herzo. I'll go ahead and get one.

How does the Swede shoot?

It shoots better than I do. It is set up with a Weaver K4. My partner and I have a couple of silver medals using it.

I'm setting one up for the Western games.

Is yours an original M41 or a converted M96? If an M96, did you use an Accumount scope mount?

Mine is a modified M96 (action dated 1899). I bought a spare bolt that I had bent for the rifle (I saved the original matching bolt). SARCO had a replica scope mount (same as the K98) available several years ago that is the same as the Swedes used.

I've ordered an Accumount M41 mount and have arranged with a local gunsmith to install it. Already have a bent bolt handle (factory bent) and a Weaver K4-1 for the project.

Got any pictures of your "M41" ?
