    Swedish M1894


    New to Mausers & thinking of buying this M1894 Swedishicon Mauser.

    Would like opinions of value, & possible pitfalls of purchase.

    Current owner states: "It has all matching numbers, with the exception of the rear sight (stock matches too). The stock has been lightly sanded and the rifle has 95% of the original blue. The receiver date is 1916. Bore looks perfect, bright and sharp with no hint of darkness. There are no import marks anywhere on this carbine"

    A Collector's View - The SMLE Short Magazine Lee Enfield 1903-1989. It is 300 8.5x11 inch pages with 1,000+ photo’s, most in color, and each book is serial-numbered.  Covering the SMLE from 1903 to the end of production in India in 1989 it looks at how each model differs and manufacturer differences from a collecting point of view along with the major accessories that could be attached to the rifle. For the record this is not a moneymaker, I hope just to break even, eventually, at $80/book plus shipping.  In the USA shipping is $5.00 for media mail.

    The mauser is exceptional. It is a 1894 carbine that was not convert to the M94/14 configuration. The disk in the stock indicates that it was assigned to the Northern Naval District. The carbine was probably imported into the US in the early 1950's by Pasadena Firearms which had to extend the muzzle to 18 inches since it was considered to be too short at the time for import. That carbine was not built as a M94/14 even though in 1916 it would have been. About 75% of the carbines were converted to the M94/14 configuration with the bayonet lug. The stock is beech which is the wood used at the time as Frenchicon and Turkishicon Walnut was not obtainable due to WWI raging on in Europe and the Middle East. The carbine could easily go for $1,200 US dollars or more.
