Swedish M1894/14 – Dated 1895

A Swedish M1894/14 carbine, 6.5×55 Mauser, that is nearly complete. Serial #5842. Dated 1895. 6.5mm Swedish, 18” barrel with a very good bore that has some minor freckling within the grooves. This is a Mauser Oberndorf-made carbine that has the modified 1914 nosecap with bayonet boss, and pre-’68 barrel extension fitted with glue (the screw holes are vacant and the wood is untouched beneath) that has run onto the barrel band as well. The metal retains about 60-70% of the original blue finish, with the balance faded to mottled, pewter gray. The non-matching numbered bolt has some of the original armory bright finish peeking through darker freckling on the bolt body and handle. The walnut stock and handguard are in good shape with numerous handling marks and scattered blemishes. There is a brass rack number disk on the comb of the buttstock: “106”.  The only major detractor is that it is glaringly missing its sling retainer. But I’m also including a new original Swedish ordnance spare leather sling retainer that I obtained in Sweden for you to retrofit. It can be attached with two very commonly available brass wood screws. (See photo with green background, in the gallery.) Because this carbine is missing its foreend screw and has mismatched numbers, I’ve priced it low. This carbine can certainly be used as-is, but it is also a good candidate for polishing and restoration. (CBIH-1894)
