I picked up this M94 carbine a while ago and wonder what you think. It is a 1907 Carl Gustaf, serial #s (51885) match except for the barrel bands. I haven't taken it out of the stock yet to check for numbers there (having trouble getting the nosecap off and don't want to damage anything).
The beech stock has been sanded, wrist cartouches barely visible. The handguard is new.
From "Crown Jewels", I have identified the stock disk as belonging to the Coastal Artillery at Goteborg.
The unusual part is the nosecap. The bayonet lugs have been ground off and the bottom part (not the front sight ears) is a purplish color.

Somebody either cold blued or heat blued where the bayonet lug used to be.

The stock color isn't right. Should be a walnut color. Probably done in the U.S.

Other than that not a bad looking carbine.
