Finished my M94

The M94 is pretty much done. The old varnish was removed and the stock received several coats of linseed oil cut with turpentine. The barrel extension was removed by a local gunsmith and he also matched the reproduction nose cap I bought from Swede with the original pieces on the rifle. Luckily there was no counter-bore. The sling is from a Swedish M45 and the stock buckle was also replaced with a NOS buckle since the one that was on it had a broken leather loop. Currently it has a NOS Husqvarna trigger guard since I need to do some repairs to the original. It is complete numbers-matching except for the most important piece; the bolt is 2 digits away from the receiver. It's a Gustafs from 1904 and thanks to my brother's keen eye, a pawnshop rescue. It was originally assigned to the 7th Company of the 4th Artillery. Thanks to all who provided assistance along the way. A 1899 Oberndorf M96 should be here this week...
