I just bought my first Swede (my first rifle, actually). It's a sporterized m/96 1907 that has the rear sight removed, has been d/t for a scope, and has a barrel just over 18 inches. Can someone recommend a scope/scope ring combo for me? Can I do it for around $250? I don't think I'll put a diopter on it because it looks like it would be $125-150 for that, plus a new front sight, and I'd have to pay a gunsmith to drill more holes in the bridge. I may put a new 24inch barrel on it to get a bit more velocity and range out of the 6.5 cartridge, so I do want a scope with decent magnification. It's a bit ugly (the stock has been painted red), was $200 out the door, and this will be a bit of a beater rifle, so I don't need excellent glass on it. Don't worry, when I get a M/38 as issued I'll take good care of her. I ordered bronze wool to polish the bolt.
