1894 Swedish Mauser Carbines
August 29, 2007

1903 Carl Gustaf m/94 Navy carbine. Several 1903 carbines have showed up in this same
year and serial number range (20xxx) with identical Navy discs suggesting that there may
have been a block purchase by the Marine District, Northern Command (MDN) that year.

That little dip on the comb was where there was a small brass disc.

Here's a 1903 Gustaf 94/14 that never had a disc, but instead has the comb disc.

If you'll note the position of the finger grooves on this carbine stock with the two carbines
at the top of the page you'll see we have a difference in position. This may be a later made stock or a replacement.

Older design of muzzle cover for the m/94 carbine.
I believe it was held in place by beeswax.

Oh Bubba... You took this 1895 carbine and drilled and tapped it for a scope.

Yes, its serial number 35.

....and you made the stock so much ~sportier~......

It was apparently once outfitted as a gallery carbine with a
tang sight......

A common question: Where have all the m/94 carbines gone?
Look close.. that's a carbine barreled action acting as a sub-caliber training device
in this anti-tank weapon. Many other carbines were built into Carl Gustaf m/63 target rifles.
