Picked this up a couple of weeks ago.
That's pretty cool. How's it shoot?
Needs a taller front sight !
If it is an M96. If it is actually a Husqvarna it is as rare as hens teeth. Pics of the receiver please.
If jpattersonnh is correct about it's rarity,do NOT,I repeat,do not replace that sight,a collectible gun is worth more with all original parts---aim low
I need one!!!!
Here is another pic. it is a Husqvarna M96 numbers matching.
Nice rifle you have there. Where have you picked the masterpiece up?
Pawn Shop !
Thats a great pawn shop find.
M96's were made from The late 1890's through the 1920's. In 1938 the M38 was adopted, but some M96's were made from around 1940 to 1944 and were made by Husqvarna for the civilian marksmanship program. Around 18,000 were produced. Compared w/ other firearms, it is not a common rifle. It has a good deal of collectors value.
