Our Assessment: This Model 1894 Swedish Mauser Carbine was imported by Interarmco. The metal has been refinished, the wood is in Very Good condition and the bore is still strong. These Swedish Mausers were renamed by the importer and many of the rifles imported had 1/2 inch extensions added to the barrel (making them 18 inch barrels) to comply with the law. This one has a 17 1/2 inch barrel without an extension and comes with a Model 1894 Bayonet with locking scabbard. Good luck.
