Description:

Hooded blade front and fine adjustable m/55 rear sight, with the receiver dated "1910" and fitted with a short side rail for a scope. The scope base is numbered to match the rifle, and the Ajack 4x90 scope is blued with an elevation adjustment knob. Smooth straight wrist stock, with a brown leather sling and a "GM/41B" disc on the right side. Also included is a green painted metal carrier for the scope.

Rating Definition:

Fine as arsenal converted to sniper configuration, with 85% of the arsenal refurbished blue finish, showing areas of brown patina and scattered spotting and handling marks. The barrel bands and floorplate are numbered "046", one digit off from the receiver and bolt. The stock is good, with scratches and dings. The very fine scope shows mild eternal wear, with the crosshairs solid and the optics clear. Mechanically excellent.
