    Swedish Mauser M96 (6.5 x 55mm)

    mil rifle shooters,

    I am looking to pick up one of these in good-very good condition and I have a couple questions:

    1. What is a good source to obtain one?

    2. What can I expect to pay for a +90% condition with matching part numbers?

    I have always been intrigued by this weapon/caliber and look forward to shooting and reloading for it.

    Thanks in advance.

    I'd sell you mine if i could lol. I built it from parts I found at shop. All I had to order was magazine plate/ trigger guard and safety.

    I never got around to getting dies and brass for it. It was over shadowed by my hk.

    Good luck, I have one that has been bubba'ed that I want to put back to "as issued" condition. Seems parts for these puppies are rare as hen's teeth.

    The private market is pretty much the only place left. There are a couple/few online shops that will have small numbers of them on occasion, but the days of large numbers of imports are long gone. I would say that you can expect to pay $350-$450 for one in VG-Excellent condition with matching numbers. More if it has the target sights.

    I love the smell of cosmoline in the morning.

    I looked at the link posted for the Simpson LTD M96's. I din't realize that a 90%+ all matching correct M 96 would be so difficult to find. I gave up after the first page. I have seen them at gun shows but they were asking in the $500-$600 range now I know why.
