I'm trying hard to resist the urge. Online vendor has a Husquarna 1600, 1954, rifle in .30-06, 23" barrel. It looks really good, has a repaired stock crack at the tang. Anyone have any experience/opinion regarding these rifles? Thanks, Gary

It's a slightly modified Mauser , lightweight, easy to carry, kicks a bit, noted for cracked stocks in the tang area.
A Mauser in 30-06? What's to resist, I'd buy it. :D

Very good hunting rifle.

Hmmm. Man, you guys are helping me a lot. Not helping my "rathole" much though. Does $350 sound fair? And, it is C&R, shipped to my door.:uhoh:

How is the condition of the bore and chamber? How many rounds have been shot through it? Was the rifle properly maintained? From the looks of the thousands of firearms I've seen over the years, accuracy would suffer from the owner's neglect, not from him shooting the bore out. A shot out bore is really rare, but a nasty, cruddy, corroded, rusty, pitted bore is as common as a politician that lies, cheats and steals from us.

Jarhead, the ad says, "Bore has VG (High VG) lands, grooves have mirror shine". The old rifle looks damned good in all the pics. What do you think about $350 for it?

Sounds reasonable to me, especially if it has scope rings with it. If it were me selling it, I'd throw in a box of ammo, rings or a sling as lagniappe, but that's one of the things that makes me a coonass.

No rings, just factory drilled and tapped.

The high-comb stock seems to be common on these(??). $350 sounds about right. There is one on GB for $545 not selling.

I had a Husquarna 250 back around 1980 that was BADAZZ. A 1600 must be incredible :wink:

Yeah. A 1600 would throw up some clods wouldn't it? Even more than this bad boy:
