Comment: Very rare WW2 Swedish M96 made in 1916 and sold to Finland to fight Russia in the winter and continuation war. Only 47,000 Swedish rifles and 900 carbines were sold to Finland making them the only Swedish rifles to see service during WW2 and particularly rare especially in Australia today. The rifle is in good to very good condition, all matching numbers, is marked with the Finnish military acceptance mark(SA in a box) to the receiver, original cleaning rod, bore and rifling 7.5-8/10, shoots great, very minor pitting to a small area on the surface of the extractor claw and butt plate, comes with bayonet. Seldom seen in Aus and definitely one for the collector or service rifle shooter who wants something no one else on the range will have, buyer to pay shipping and transfer costs.
