A 1903 Swedish mauser m96.

She may be 111 years old but she is still fun to fondle. ;D

btw...I'm really starting to like the 6.5 x 55 round. ;)

Shoots a pretty tight group but about 10 inches high.Lowest setting on the rear sight is 300 meters.I don't know why that is but I'm sure they had their reasons.
