Its most likely a cutdown M96 Swedish Mauser, the carbines did'nt go into production until 1941.
The 6.5x55's are usually good shooters, I have two and I love them. One is an original M96 and the other is a custom, the 6.5x55 is sweet to shoot, mild recoil and a great bullet selection if you reload. Pics would help alot.

Thanks for info. I'm thinking about turning it into a deer rifle for my son. Gotta figure out how to get a scope on it.I love to shoot it no recoil shooting 140gr. bullets.

One thing to consider.

Most military receivers are made of very hard steel and hard to drill and tap, it can be done but it's not easy. My guns like 140gr Sierra Gamekings.
