I was given a rifle that my step-grandfather owned and used and I am trying to figure out a little of the history. My dad was acutally given the rifle, he never used it and has no idea about it. He even asked me what caliber it was.
I know it's an 8mm; I was wondering if any of you could provide a little more detail for me. I know it was made in Sweden and I'm pretty sure it's the .323 caliber.
1: Top of barrel is Stamped 8x57 S
2: Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori
3: Barrel has SN: MB 70241 (the 2 looks like a 9 & 2 combined also kinda weird)
4: following the SN there is a stamp with a " C with a K stamped inside the C, followed by 11/63 followed by a stamp of C with a S inside the C"
5: Has a hooded front sight
I'd like to reload for this and its in great shape and very solid. I appreciate any help you may be able to provide. I'm also going to keep looking online and see if I can find out more.
