Default Help with old 30-06

Hi all - My father gave me an old hunting rifle. I know nothing about it and I was wondering if anybody had info on it.

It looks to be made by Husqvarna. I know they makes some bad azz chainsaws and motorcycles, but I had no idea they made rifles!! It's a bolt action 30-06, serial # 1160XX. It has a scope labeled 4X Banner by Bushnell. Are there any places online where I can find out how old it is / what year it was made?

Thanks for all your help in advance!

Yup, a friend of my dad had one in the lat 60's/early 70's and lent it to my dad for he and I to go deer hunting. It was a Mauser-type action iirc. Fairly high quality stuff.

Something that old could be dangerous, you’d better send it my way for proper disposal...

I kid! Those are commercial mausers and really great classic deer rifles. You might think about replacing the scope with something brighter, but I’d just recommend a good thorough cleaning to start with.

Should be able to place a date, but I’m not much help - just wanna compliment the pretty new acquisition.

Beautiful rifle. Bet it's going to be a tack driver.

Nice rifle but I suggest you do not list the complete serial number.

Thanks for the heads up. I have edited my post. Just out of curiosity, what can people do with the serial #?

Realistically they can't do a damn thing with a serial number. It's no different than your VIN on your car, or your license plate on your car. Some folks just like to be cautious or paranoid. Pick your poison.

What do they say, 30 .06 is never a bad decision?

Thanks all your your help and comments. I have been digging around on the internet and it looks likes it's a Husqvarna Model 640 made in 1950. I cleaned the bore and it's looking really nice. This rifle looks to have VERY little use. I know my dad never used it in the 35+ years he had it and it was a gift to my dad from his step father way back in the early 80's. From what I can remember he never went hunting and maybe only used it a few times.

I'm excited to take it to the range and spot it in!

Swedish firearms are the highest quality.

That doesn't look like a factory stock but still a nice rifle. I'm a sucker for those old 98 actions. The palmswell looks like a Richards Micro Fit stock but not totally sure.

Since it's an old rifle it could not be registered to anyone. Conceivably someone could report it stolen using the serial number and then you could have a headache proving that it's yours.
