The Swedish M96 Target Rifle - An Unsung Hero
The Swedish Mauser Rifle is one of the best kept secrets of Service Rifle shooting. Despite not seeing as much active service as its decidedly more famous German counterparts, the Swedish Mauser M96 Service Rifle is nevertheless an exceptional target rifle, capable of accuracy surpassing that of the M98 Mausers. Chambered for 6.5x55 Swedish, one of the oldest and arguably one of the best full bore rifle rounds still around today, it is partially this round that makes the Swedish Mauser such an exceptional rifle. Flat shooting over a long distance, the 6.5x55 Swedish round excels at both target shooting and hunting, and it is this robustness that has cemented it's place among one of the greatest calibres of all, and made it one of the longest continuous production cartridges of all time.
Utilising a pre-98 cock on close action, similar to the Lee Enfield, and with a five round internal magazine common to the majority of Mauser rifles, the M96 Swedish Mauser is a full length service rifle, designed for effective and precise shooting up to 600 yards, with careful shooting the M96 Swedish Mauser is capable of distances exceeding 1000 yards. The Swedish target rifle Mauser is today a popular choice for target shooters, hunters and even Olympic Athletes.
