The swedes are great shooters.. I bought 5 from the first of the major imports and bought a carbine later.. They all shoot great.. The mismatched bolt does really alter the rifles accuracy if the headspace checks out. It becomes a red flag that the rifle needs top be checked, that's all. All of the rifles I sporterized for others were shooters, one going under .3 inches regularly with handloads.. I kept 3 '96s original, one an original oberdorf contract rifle.. The carbine I bought locally. The guy was using it for deer hunting and it just cost too much to sporterize. He asked $35 for it,,I didn't quibble! It's in great original shape but does have the stock modification for the bayonet and the bayonet lug itself.. I even lucked into an original bayonet for the carbine.. That's a hard one to find!!
