Outstanding marksman were chosen in each company. They were each issued a rifle with the more precise rear sight. After the war these were issued to rifle teams. Many were imported to the U.S. from the 1950s through the 1970s. They are a nice find.

Would not have that sight, if it is some kind of rare marksman sight been on a m/41 & not a m/96-38 ?...............

Thank you all for your comments! I apologize for the EXTREMELY delayed response! I have been VERY busy with school and a new job. I am sad to say that the rifle pictured on my original post is no longer with me. In happier news though, I am now the proud owner of a unmodified 1903-A3! I will post pictures on a 1903 thread if I can find one. Thank you again!

I hope you got a pretty penny for the Swede. That is a sight used in their equivalent of our CMP competitions. It is a very rare variation of the SM sikte m/58. Bet that sight is worth more then the '03 you bought.

I sure hope iot wasn't worth more than the rifle I just got. It was around $700. You are the first one to tell me ANYTHING like this...even outside of this forum/thread. I'm nervous now. I really hope I didn't just get screwed over!

You lost a couple hundred if the '03 was $700.00. But you may have gotten a great deal on the '03, but most I see are still in the $500.00 range. You also would have had to find a collector that wanted your Swede, That would have been fairly easy over at Gun Boards.

Just to add a note. We all have lost on collectables, it is part of the learning curve.
