That is a '96 action, M38 bolt. The bolt is Husqvarna, the barreled action could be CG or Husqvarna depending on when it was made. It is Military. I'm not sure why someone scrubbed the roll stamps off.

Sights have been removes and barrel appears to have been sanded.Any comments will be appreciated.
With out looking at it real close I am pretty damn sure it is a Carbine m/94 ("Karbin m/94"), that`s what the Kb stands for & was more than likely built by Mauser or Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori................

The initials before the serial number are the inspectors. Looking at it again, carbines used the last 4 digits of the serial number on parts, the M96 and M38 used 3. The bolt has been blued. Somone wanted a carbine and started cutting.

They all used a 3 step barrel. After the last step the legnth changes.


It could be anything then. Here is a link to an actual 1895 rifle, noteing the serial numbers.

Here is a list of '94 rifles. Note K.B. is Found on a 1903 rifle. That is the most significant proof .303Tom was correct. It seems K.B. is found only on 1903's! It is not a hack job, but a '94 w/ a blued bolt. That would make a great woods rifle.
