My Swedish M94 Mauser, built at Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori in 1903. This example is actually the "M94-14" variant, having been modified in 1914 with the redesigned nose cap to add the bayonet lug with stabilizing extension to the muzzle band. The yellow decal appears to the casual observer to be installed upside down, but this is intended so that the shooter can simply rotate the stock to conveniently view the printed elevation conversion table for adjusting between the two different velocities of issue ammo. This is an amazingly quick-pointing and handy-sized rifle (carbine?) originally issued to fortification, artillery, and transport troops. Still with its original all-matching serial numbers. The early version of the brass stock disk bears only the unit and a rack number, rather than the later disks which displayed bore condition 'codes', but no unit details.
