This little gem followed me home after many months of joyless anticipation of my variation coming through!
It looks like a standard Swedish Cavalry Carbine in 6.5 x 55 and until recently they were still used by one of the Scandinavian Royal Guards.This one however comes with a scope which we believe is German and dates from the interwar period which is when we also think the work was done. Sadly there are no names to put to this work and it will be a joy to shoot starting with a zeroing session tomorrow! It takes down nicely by slackening the two action screws and pushing the barrel band forward.
The view through the scope is exactly the one I like, clear and a perfect reticle. Now to fathom out the adjustment on the top!
The question now is whats next, the 7 x 57, the wildcat .30 or the left handed .243 that I really do need for all the cack handed clients I keep getting sent?
