    Then there is the heathen crowd like me who will clean, repair and refinish an old rifle to keep it in shooting condition. Great Grandpa shot it and I expect to be able to shoot it too and someday whoever gets it after me, probably my nephew, I expect him to shoot them till they can't be fixed anymore. I don't sell my guns and the sentimental value is still there for me but I feel closer to my dad, grandpa and great grandpa when their guns go bang and I hit the mark with them. Antique guys hate guys like me. :D

    What a great forum. My Husqvarna markings appears to be identical to pics posted by johnnyD. My serial number is 135659. Could someone please supply some info on this fantastic rifle, like year and value.

    I agree 100% with the others who have advised you not to refinish it. The gun is beautiful as -- it has the patina of history. Clean it gently, reglue that crack if it needs it, and oil the metal.

    That's great - thanks so much for the info. I have been hunting with this rifle for 25 years and my Dad many years before that. We have taken many moose, deer and the odd elk with this rifle and it has proven to be deadly accurate. I never take it to the range unless it has been knocked or when I put a new scope on it.

    I am another first timer on TFF, have inherited a Husqvarna 30-06, mauser bolt action, se#128660, with an ingraved crown and letter above the word Sweden, above the chamber. I was wondering what I could find out about this rifle from my grandfather. My father said that it was bought in the 50's. It is of great personal value to me and would like to be able to keep my own son's informed of the gun, year made, any model that could be identified. I will try to get good pictures to post.

    It was made in 1951. Based on year and caliber it is either a 640, a 1000 or an 1100. The main differences in those three seem to be the stock.

    Alpo, can you tell me what year/model 138xxx would be? Also, anyone know where I can get a rear sight (dovetail) for one? I'm also curious if there is an online manual somewhere.

    It was made in 1952. As for models, the same answer. 640s were made from '44 to '53, while 1000s and 1100s were made from '50 to '53. Caliber might help to tell which of the three.

    The 1100 was a deluxe version of the 1000, differing in quality of wood. The 1000/1100 can be distinguished from the 640 in that the 1000/1100 had a jeweled bolt.

    Mine is a .30-06. I'll post pictures when I get it all cleaned up and put back together.
