    Custom made rifle by an approved Swedish Gunsmith. A CG63.
    Built on a 1916 Swedish M96 receiver. Soderin Diopter sight and Elit front sight. Heavy Norma barrel in 6.5X55. Built for a US collector years ago. Fired hardly at all by looks. He can't recall now how many rouds for certain.Said a few hundred. Yes, a man I know and trust for years.

    Using various inserts for the rear diopter, I am good to go out to 600 meters. Usually I only
    shoot out to 300 due to closest range limitations.

    Very nice. I'm envious! The 6.5 x 55mm is a fantastic round. :D

    I really like the 6.5 in the Swedes Mauser action. I take about 6 with me when I go to the range for my Swede practices.:)

    Hey, I have a gun exactly like that!:eek:

    Well, no I don't. The only thing that is the same on mine is the crest.;)

    That's a very cool rifle, I'd love to get to shoot one like it some day, even the basic milsurps are remarkably accurate and nice to shoot.

    Is that an internal box mag? Capacity?
    6.5 caliber is darn near the best BC available,
    and in other aspects also! NICE! :)

    Great looking rifle!

    Makes me sadly reminisce though. The thing I regret to this day is selling off my long range rifles. A 338 Win mag and a 308 Norma mag. Both left handed Mauser actions.

    Hang on to that beauty.

    Now, here is one you won't see often. Another CG63 built on a rare 1943 Husqvarna receiver. I t was built in 1971 by the CG factory. First pic shows the stampings.

    Original owner/collector ordered it from the CG Factory. Then had it imported to the US.
    This one was put into his collection for decades as a collectors piece. He never fired a round in it.
    It is still 100% new. I have not tried this one out yet. Some day I will, but I have 10 or more others to shoot and work up loads for each one.

    Yes, a 5 round internal box. A super accurate rifle.
