Default I need Help..Again

Hello all,
I just acquired another rifles and need help getting the value of it.
The rifle is a Carl Gustav Swedish Mauser in 6.5◊55mm Swedish.
That is pretty much all I know about it.
Thank you in advance for what ever help I can get with this.



Thanks
Ray

Itís been sporterized but could be a good shooter. The 6.5 round can be very accurate.

Can you tell me and make and model of the scope, if it's even marked and legible?

It seems familiar to me.

You might be better advised to ask about the value of a gun before you buy it.

Sporterized Swedish Mauser + old scope (probably 4X) of unknown manufacture = $175-250 .

I've got a non-sporterized version I'm going to be putting up for sale soon too!

Nice rig. That old scope looks like a older Weaver K-4, but, those side turret gizmo's have me scratching my head. How's it shoot?

I got it from my uncle who has not shot it in like 30-40 years, and was just sitting in the back of the safe. Will be taking a closer look at it today, and try and get more pictures and info.
Thank you all for your help.

Scope looks like an older Weaver KV 2 3/4 - 5x. The third turret is the magnification turret.

Great 60's Swedish sporter. I'd pay 300 for it. If the stock is bedded properly it will be a tack driver. Perfect deer rifle. Low recoiling and super accurate. It was probably a m/96 before it was sporterized.

You can replace the old scope with a modern one and have the best deer rifle ever!

I have been looking for a Swedish sporter myself. I wouldn't pay more than $300 for it myself as you can get into the $400 range and pick up one of the cheaper modern deer guns in 6.5 CM. Would make a decent deer gun but that is all it is good for and it would have to be priced lower than a new equivalent.

I got more information today.
Here is a picture of the top of the receiver under the scope rail.


Here is a closeup of the scope markings and knobs.



Thanks for all the help.
Ray

It started life as a M96, built in 1907. The barrel still has steps, so it is a cut down original barrel. It started out ~29" long. It originally had a straight bolt, so that has been modified as well.

As it sits, looks like a pretty decent deer/pig rifle.

Lots of info here:
