I would trade for it IF and only If the Swede has all matching numbers, the stock disk is intact and unmolested, the stock is original and in decent shape, and the bore is nice, shiny, and tight. Most of the Swedes I have seen in pawn shops and gun stores have either the stock disk missing or bubba got to the stock. I lucked out and got one in excellent shape for $185 at a local flea market. As far as shooters go, my experience with the Swedes I have shot as well as my own, is that they are by far, the most accurate Mauser rifles EVER built. Most of the guys around here who target shoot with Milsurp rifles either use M96 or M38 Swede Mausers or the K-31 Schmidt Rubin.I don't know anything about the Swed 96 Mauser, but would question it being worth $350 unless in Mint condition??? I do not think trading for that one would be a good deal. The rifle you have should be an excellent shooter so keep it and enjoy it. Having been assembled with parts from 3 or 4 different rifles doesn't hurt it's shootability.
Ahhh....sure looks like a German barrel to me, and typical of German markings regularly seen on 98k's...better take another look sarge.Well, for sure it isn't a German rebarrel - at least that is nothing like any such mark I've ever seen identified. Which means no telling who, when or where the bbl was changed.
