Thread: help please 6.5x55

    Unhappy help please 6.5x55

    I own a Swedish mauser 6.5x55 military m96 issue rifle.

    As I get older shooting over a open sight is becoming more difficult I want to fit a scope mount on my rifle but I don't want to drill into the gun. so I tried a gunsmith less mount brought from Canada but the bolt would not open without hitting the scope.
    my question is would a M38 bolt ( bent elbow) fit onto a m96 rifle. and if so where could I get one ,I tried the USA but they can no longer sell overseas any help or advise out there??

    Hi Tony. if its like the Mauser action then yes you can. i had a straight bolt Mauser 7.92mm. And changed the bolt handle to a bent K98 with no prob apart from a wee bit of wood feting. Try the deact sellers as they have some odd ball parts lying around.
    good luck Tommy
