Heys guys so I just bought this m1894 how do I tell what model m1894 carbine it is?
Must be crystal ball time!!!
I don't understand?
We need pictures. Is it an old one(100 years old) or a newer one (10 years old)? What caliber? Serial number(you can leave off the last couple digits,like A1258xxx
1894 Winchester, Swede.....???? Need pics!!!!!
Sorry I knew you guys would want pics but I won't be able to get them for a while its a 1907 Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori carbine with bayonet lugs 6.5x55
Here is picture of the firearm
The bolt handle has been blued at some time. Looks to be a nice rifle!! How is the bore? Brass disk is missing, but again, could be worse. What did you pay??
I payed $65 where could I possibly get the pieces that go in the stock?
What you have is a Model 94/14 that was modified after 1914 with the addition of the bayonet lugs. Model 94s don't have the lug. Also due to import laws at the time a false muzzle was press fit to many imported here to meet the barrel length restrictions at the time which was 18".
You payed $65 for it? Unless the carbine has holes drilled in the barrel and chamber you stole it. It worth at least 5X more than that perhaps much more if it is in decent condition. The stock disks are sometime for sale on eBay. Just be careful of counter-fit ones.
These Swedish Mausers can be addicting as they are great collectables. The M94s are the most desirable and interesting of the lot. My favorite was this one with n Elm stock.
I recall buying one back years ago. I was stunned to find it had a 16.5" I think. I had a barrel extension added to it. These too short "Swedes" used to be common.
The short barrel Mausers are great drive hunt (treibjagd) rifles.
Short barreled rifles can also get you a "Trip" in the U.S. .
Current minimum barrel length is 16" on a rifle and 18" on a shotgun. Really nice find. Sometimes you get lucky.
