Mikey; This latest batch of swede CG-63's sure blew the guys out of the water with trying to cash in on what they squirreled away!! I was seeing outragious prices on them till now. Still my best finds have been at gun shows and local sales for regular swede's (M96's & M38's & M96/38's). I did get some great ones from Samco before the bottom of the barrel was hit, well were threw it know at samco were in the dirt and almost to the lava from what i have heard their sending out for the snipers they have left. They sound like pieced together POS (mismatched)too bad. Sarco sounds like they have found a few goodies. BB

BTW; If i was shopping for a swede sniper i would look at Empirearms i don't trust anyone else.

gunnut69; When you say carbine which one is it? Is it a M96/38 which would be a Carl Gustaf or Obendorf that started life out as an M96 and I believe if the way the number system is right they were modified and cut in 1938 into carbines. Thus model 1896 and modified in 1938 makes it a "96/38". If its a Husqvarna its an orginal "new production" M38's these were made in the 40's. Now there is a carbine that was made before everything back in 1894 its the little M94 carbine. There were many fakes made of the M94 too by cutting down the others. If you have an orginal M94 and you paid $35 for it you did great!!! I'll give you $40 for it? No just kidding. I have been eyeing the 7mm M94 the swede's made for south america. BigBill

There are some of the mauser guru's who say the only orginal mauser is the Obendorf. I guess back in the old days there was competition between the mauser manfacturers in Germany as to who's was the best. I don't dispute anything i like them all. :-D

The prices can only go higher on all the surplus stuff lets face it its like land they just ain't making anymore!!!! Some are well past the prices of the modern stuff already and i think as they continue to runout all the prices will be much higher if you can find them. At some of the gun shows here there are no sks's or mosins sometimes already. There's always a few mausers but not much of anything else lately. BB

I remember a few years ago seeing a table full of #41 Johnsons and i thought $1,200 was high well over the next few years they never seem to stop going up and they have hit $4,000+ now. I'll bet the guy wished he had never sold them so soon.

The stock disc tells the accuracy and some of my swede's have up to three changes made on the stock disc. Now there is another marking to see how many times its been repaired too there are crowns near the trigger guard stamped in the wood. The more crowns the more its been repaired. The only way i would believe the stock disc is if the wood is serial numbered to gun and its 100% all matching otherwise its miss matched so there's less chance the stock disc/crowns/stock is correct all to the gun. I never checked all of my swede's to see if the wood matches but i do have one thats 100% all matching with a bright bore and she's a pretty one too. You don't see these that often and its the first all matching one i have ever seen. The most common thing is the bolt matches the reciever and thats as far as it goes with most swede's I have seen lately and most of the hardware is all not matching too.
