I just picked up a M98 Husqvarna in 6.5x55 on Gunbroker. My plan was to rebarrel my Turk 98 and build a peep sight sporter, but this one started calling my name! I actually have less in it than I would have put in the Turk. Ohy well, now I have both!

Take a look at the peep sight on this Husky. I've not seen one like this before. It very compact and is adjustable. Hope to run some of my Lee 170 gn boolits thru it soon.

That is a sharp looking rifle. I shoot the Lee 170's in my military M-96 with great accuracy.

That peep sight is very unusual.

Nice rifle. I like the 3 lug 98 paired with the 6.5 X 55 cartridge. When loading warm loads, I feel better knowing the cartridge is in a true 3 lug 98'.

Love my 6.5s. You did good.

Really a nice looking rifle there Uncle.

I've been looking hard at some of those imported Husq's in 9.3x57, probably manufactured about the same time era. Dreaming of shooting big boolits, but gotta take care of the taxman first!
