I just ran across one. I was told that it came out of Canada years ago. All visible #s on rifleAlways consider these slightly off m/41 as having come in from Canada. A lot of them have.
Oops, I forgot to mention that base is pinned to reciever. Serial# on base and mount are on front parts, not visible from side. The # are stamped very small and mount # is positioned right above base #.I just ran across one. I was told that it came out of Canada years ago. All visible #s on rifle
match. Base, mount, and rings #s match each other, not rifle #. There is a brass medalion set into the stock but instead of bore condition it is stamped K I K, below that I 16, and the
number on the base, mount, and rings is stamped at bottom with a capitol N and small o
with two tiny lines beneath the o. The scope case is missing. I tried to find some of the
wonderful info which had previously been offered on one the forums but have been unable
to do so. The man I got it from was not a dealer, he said that he bought it some time back from a man who was from Canada. Any thoughts on this one?
No wonder it didn't come with a scope case.....Locking lever matches rest of mount/base.It is uncommon to see the mount , base & rings matching each other , but correct . Most are usually found mismatched . Usually they do not match the rifle serial numbers , but a few are known completely matching . Numbers stamped at the front of the base & mount are correct for the M-41 sniper . Look on the back side of the locking lever for a matching number as well . The M-41 sniper is not known to have a scope case .
The " KIK " disc is thought to be correct for a sniper rifle . " KIK " being short for kikargevär or scoped rifle . It appears that you have a correct M-41 sniper to me . What scope do you have ?
Thanks for the information, that made my day. I took it out of the stock and wood andMost snipers were made a the Stockholm arsenal . Therefore , you have the crown/S stamped on the wrist of the stock . The muzzles are NOT stamped with the crown/S . There may be a crown/S stamped on the barrel , between the receiver & rear sight . The scopes never match the rifle , as they were numbered independently . Less than a 1000 AGA M-42 scopes were made . It appears you have a nice , correct M-41 sniper .
