Product Summary

Swedish Mausers are a family of bolt-action rifles based on an improved variant of Mauser’s earlier Model 1893, but using the 6.5x55mm cartridge and incorporating unique design elements as requested by Sweden. These rifles were constructed with Swedish steel, a special high-strength steel alloy containing nickel, copper, and vanadium. This unique steel was so prized for its strength and corrosion-resistance that the Swedish government required that even the Swedish Mausers produced in Germany be built with the alloy. The Model 1938 rifle was adopted as part of a worldwide trend towards service rifles that were shorter in overall length than a standard infantry rifle, but longer than a cavalry carbine. This rifle was manufactured at Carl Gustafs stads Gevärsfaktori in Eskilstuna, Sweden. Its wood, metal, and bore are all in very good condition.
