    CARL GUSTAF M96 1919

    Hi all!!

    I am from Spain and I want to share my rifle with all. The rifle is a Carl Gustav M96.


    I am looking for clips and accessories. Do you know any website in Europe?

    Very nice! Looks like an FSR rifle with the rear diopter sight removed.

    Looks like a nice Tunheden rear sight insert.

    The Swedishicon FSR or "Volunteer Shooters Movement" is a Swedish shooting organization. One of the rifle types used by the members was an M96 like yours with a diopter type rear sight. I have a couple of them...



    You can see the diopter sights on my rifles. The two holes in the rear bridge of your M96 is for the mounting screws for the diopter sight.

    It is true! I had not seen it.

    These rifles arrived in Spain in the 80s, when they became fashionable.

    What type of reload do you use?

    140 hornady ELD, RL15 40 grains, Winchester LR primers, and brass of choice... PPU works great. Reloading nuances (powder, projectile, brass) for the swedish rifle does not improve you that much as these weapons will create holes on holes if you can get the velocity from 2300-2600 ft/sec. Snipers and infantry rifles alike. These weapons typically are in top 3 of the CMPicon vintage sniper games. Along with the 03A1's.

    I haven't developed any handloads for the Swedishicon bolt action rifles. I have handloaded for my Swedish Ljungmans and my bolt guns do alright with that load, but I think they could do better with a load made specifically for them.

    What reloading supplies do you have access to in Spain?
