Mirror-bright bore, all matching serial numbers EXCEPT for mismatched bolt.  Includes integral spike-bayonet. Barrel a bit shorter than usual, receiver has been incorrectly (and weakly) stamped with CR39 and circular cartouche on right side of stock has been altered to read MAS 36 - 1939 (also incorrectly).

SWEDISH Model 94 Mauser bolt-action carbine # 70389 (6.5x55) mfg. by Carl Gustaf in 1916. Excellent condition, at least 90% external bluing with near-perfect mirror-bore, all-matching numbers except end-cap and barrel-band, no provision for bayonet. I believe this to be a restoration of a previously sporterized M94 carbine, the buttstock is a professionally cut-down beech M96 rifle stock with ill-fitting buttplate but well done with convincing sling slot added. Has soldered muzzle extension (required for importation before 1986).  Not import-marked and quite attractive. PHOTO . . . $725.   C&R  SOLD

SOVIET Model 91/30 Mosin-Nagant bolt-action rifle # YP346 (7.62x54R) mfg. by Tula in 1942 with large number 3319 struck over date for some UNKNOWN reason.

FRENCH Model 1884 Kropatchek bolt-action short-rifle # F33768 (11x59R French Gras) mfg. by St. Ettienne in 1885.  Excellent condition with an extremely strong and bright bore. Metal has full bluing that is turning to plum in a few minor spots, no matching numbers (as usual for these), mechanically completely functional with 6-shot tubular magazine (having a working cut-off) and original leather sling as well as a very scarce and correct 1884-dated bayonet and scabbard. Wood is sound, cleaning rod I believe is a reproduction (but correct for this rifle, and ONLY this rifle).  Extremely rare, very few of these survive and most collections lack a specimen in ANY condition (much less one as attractive as this example).  Not import marked, and worthy of the finest collection!  PHOTOS . . . $2850.   Antique, no FFL required    FREE SHIPPING IN A HARD CASE!

    BRITISH Mark II* Snider-Enfield two-band musket conversion of an 1853 Enfield musket # 407 (.577 Cartridge) mfg. by Enfield in 1860.

Original (browning) finish with a nice mirror-bright bore, includes cleaning-rod, leather sling and hinged muzzle-cap. Originally chambered in the obsolete 6.5x58 Verguiero cartridge, these rifles were rechambered to 8x57 in Germany just before WWII and have one of the smoothest actions of any military rifle.

Soviet Model 91/30 Mosin Nagant rifles

We have just discovered a crate of Soviet 91/30 rifles in our warehouse that have been there for at least eight years. All are arsenal refurbished rifles but, unlike most available in today's marketplace, all have very small import marks beneath the barrel near the muzzle rather than enormous "billboard" import marks on their receivers that other firms have for sale. Every one has stamped matching serial numbers (unless noted otherwise), and aside from cleaning-rods no accessories are included.  CLICK on the photo above to access our 91/30 page or surf to http://www.empirearms.com/9130.htm
