View Full Version : Need history on Carl Gustafs Mauser

January 30, 2002, 21:08
I just aquired a Mauser rifle. I am looking for any history available. It is marked on the receiver ring:
Carl Gustafs Stads
The serial number is below the date.
All numbers on the rifle match the last three digits of the serial number.

What exactly are you wanting?
Which model is it?
Does it have the brass disc on the buttstock?

I think your rifle is a m96. It was made at the Carl Gustafs Gevarfaktoriet, Eskskilstuna, Sweden (Carl Gustaf's City Rifle factory).It's designation is "Gevar m96" and if the muzzle is threaded, the designation is "Gevar m96B", "B" standing for "blank firing attachment".
It would help to know the barrel length and what the brass disc says.
