    243 m96

    Picked up this 243 today. Looks to have a carl gustaf action and a 243 remington barrel. Was told it groups nice.

    Nice, I love the Swedish Mauser actions. Can you see what year it was built or is the scope mount in the way?

    Just hauled the scope mount off , its showing 1918. I love old sporterized mausers, something keeps drawing me to them. I hope it's a shooter . Just threw a cheap 4x scope on for now

    With that short barrel it should be a really nice handling rifle to carry around.
    Don't blame me, I didn't vote for that clown. Oct 20, '15

    Yeah feels good , 22 inch barrel with the bolt closed , feels shorter though.

    I have a serious thing for Sporterized Mausers as well. The Swedish ones are just made so well, and you can see the quality in the steel. Let us know how it shoots when you get the chance.

    Anyone have a nice sporter stock they want to part with . I'd like to get a different stock for this rifle and upgrade the trigger. I tried 3 shots through it yesterday and it is real accurate.
