Thanks for the information so far. I tried the dry firing trick and it definitely is the 96 mod.

The Model 96 Swede is a small

The Model 96 Swede is a small ring Mauser unlike the Model 98 which is a large ring. The smaller receiver ring somewhat limits the case pressure so consider that if you want to bubba it by rechambering to a super duper magnum.

If it is still original they are very well made and quite accurate. Low recoil makes them fun to shoot. The 6.5 X 55 mm cartridge is common among European target shooters and hunters.

As for yours, Carl Gustaf is a arms maker in Sweden. The 1917 is the year the receiver was made. Husqvarna (yes, the saw people) also made M-96 Mausers.

Yes. You are definitely

Yes. You are definitely correct about the recoil. I was very surprised when I first shot it. It barely kicks at all. My dad and me were picking off pop cans over 50 yards away with ease.
