    Very nice Swedish Mauser's! I don't have a single Mauser in my collection. I really do need to get one. Been thinking about getting one from Mitchell's.

    Doubt that the bolt will close on a 7mm round. 6.5 X 55 would work better unless it's been rebored.

    I really do like the Swedish Mauser. I wish I had kept a bunch of them. Several years ago there was a ship load imported.
    They brought a couple to the Shot Show in Vegas. I looked at them and told my friend that was there also that we need to get a few of them.
    My wife and his wife looked at us and said if that is such a good deal get a lot of them. We did, we ordered 100 of them to split up.

    We got them about 2 weeks later. There were some that looked new all the way to very good.
    We started selling them and I sold out in 2 days, it took him 3 days.
    I did manage to keep 10 of them for myself.
    We tried to order another 100 of them, but they were sold out.

    On another note: we bought 100 of the British Infield rifles.( all were 1916) When we got them they were covered in heavy black grease.
    Several of the guys that bought them were back the next 2 days and we both sold all of them. I asked one guy why he was buying so many and he looked at me and said " did you know they were new rifles?" The stocks were black from the grease. So I cleaned up one of them and sure enough it was a new rifle. I got on the phone to order another 100 of them but they were sold out.

    I really do miss the good old days of surplus guns. They were so cheap and sold very well.

    Here is a picture of a couple of them.

    Thank you for posting your picture.

    Don't do it, better off with with straight up Russian Capture. A mitchell Mauser is just a heavily sanded reblued restamped RC K89K Mauser.

    Nice Swed Mr Op.

    A few of my Swedish rifles.

    Yes, I have learned since then. That was 2 years ago that I thought it was a good idea. Lol

    Thanks for reminding me though.

    I bought mine at a local gun shop I frequented in the heady days of cheap milsurps. They had 5 or 6 on floor display with a sign saying they had been checked for proper head space. But the price was high: about $135. I went in several days and they were still there, and a voice in my head yelling "BUY ONE". I did and have been glad ever since.

    I have a few of them,... But my favorite is one I picked up that somebody built up in Scout configuration. With a Leupold 4X pistol scope. Accuracy and target acquisition is fantastic... High powered round with medium-light recoil. My 12 year old grandson likes shooting it. The 6.5x55 Swedish round is pretty fantastic. (IMHO)
