    They're out there. If you can, try to locate a FSR shooting club M96 with diopter rear sight.

    Your rifle is really nice. I have a number of them. Some have the disc on the butt stock and some do not. Few have the bullet drop notes on the butt stock. I've shot all of the Swedes I have and they all shoot really well regardless of what the disc says. The one that shoots the best is the one I have competed with in the military bolt action matchs at Red Castle and OCR&GC. My son has also picked out a tack driver in his collection. These are really sweet shooting rifles. We have some of the adapters for shooting the wooden bullets; actually that's the Swedish blank adapter I believe it is called. I have not seen any of these adapters at the guns shows for quite some time.

    I have around 100 rounds of the wood ammo. It can be fired with or without the adapter. It's kind of fun and has virtually no recoil.

    range report- i'm in love...this thing will make one hole with a five shot group at 50. the range was fairly busy and didn't get a chance to go out to 100. i shot sellier&ballot and winchester. the s&b was more accurate maybe due to its more true euro specs. with most of my factory ammo gone i am looking forward to loading for this beauty!

    Wow Dlbleak...that's great shooting. And with store bought ammo! Really cool. If you're a hand loader I expect you can best that group somewhat. Well a smaller one-hole I guess. Your goal is to have one hole measuring .264" at 100 yards...well anyone can dream huh.
    Congrats on the great rifle.

    I just latched onto a 1910, the stock has some dings but the metal is pristine...All matching except the cleaning rod.
    SO!!!..If anybody runs across a cleaning rod numbered 212, I am interested!!!
