1895-Dated Swedish M1894 Carbine 6.5×55 Semi-Sporter

A desirable 1895-dated Oberndorf Mauser-made Swedish M1894 carbine 6.5×55 semi-sporter.  This Swede has had its front metal removed and the stock forend shortened square to the front band, but is otherwise original.  It is restorable! (with thinning bluing) and dovetailed front sight installed. The receiver has NOT been drilled and tapped, so this is a great candidate for restoration to its original configuration.  (I have a brand new blond replacement military profile stock and an original bayonet mount with front sight ears available. (E-mail me, if you are interested.) The original carbine ladder rear sight is excellent, and works as it should.  The action works perfectly and the trigger pull is crisp. Has a fairly shiny bore with sharp rifling, but it has some darkness in the grooves. This should make a great shooter. The sling retainer and stock disc are absent, but those are readily available on eBay. . The original steel buttplate is intact but is a bit rough. It could easily be replaced with a rubber recoil pad — or just buff the buttplate (or not) and use the Tourbon leather slip-over recoil pad that I am including. Has a nice crisp receiver ring markings–clearly dated 1895! Serial numbers are mostly mismatched.  The floorplate and buttplate numbers do match the receiver, but the bolt assembly does not. Serial # 611X. Has arsenal inspector initials “H.K.” (APKF-895)
