Re: Swede Model 94 Carbine
That is a really nice looking 94!
Is it numbers matching?
Does it have the Interarms marking on it at all? IIRC, Interarms brought most of those surplus 94 into the US in the 60s and 70s and they pretty much had pick of the litter and there are some very nice ones to be found.
If all numbers are matching, then $700-800 isn't out of line. If everything matches, then it's most likely never been through an arsenal refurbish.
If some of the smaller parts (like the barrel band, mag floorplate, bolt parts, etc) aren't matching then the price will drop down to $400-500 pretty quickly. If smaller parts are mismatched, then it's most likely an arsenal refurb done at one of the military depots.
If condition drops away from Excellent then you can start dropping value as well. Looking at the couple pics you posted, I'd call it either Excellent or Very Good condition. For VG, take 10% off of the above numbers I listed.
You don't see many 94 carbines on the auction sites or at shows anymore so it's pretty hard to get a current pricetag. They are a lot scarcer than the 96 long rifle or the 96/38 or 38 short rifles though so they usually command a little more money than the more common Swedes do.
