I have a 1917 Swedish Mauser M96 Sporter in a Tiger Maple stock. The barrel has been shortened with a new front sight post, which is pinned. The receiver has been tapped for a scope base. I do not see any import stamps or markings.

The over all condition is 95+%. The photo does not do justice.

Any ideas on value?

that's a subjective call at this point, i'd say

There's not much of a standardized rubric for sporters. Personally, based on utility alone, I don't see why it couldn't fetch the price of an equivalent civilian deer rifle all things being equal. If sportered milsurps are your bag then condition and quality of craftsmanship become the key issues.
So unless the sporterization is like master craftsman good I would hazard to say $200-250+glass

Actually it looks like a Swedish M/94 sporter. Hard to tell from the angle of the pic, however the rear sight looks shorter than a standard M/96 rear sight. These rifles can be hyper accurate and make excellent hunting rifles.
My guess would be more like $300 to $400

Have had and sold a few $300-$400 with new sporter barrels, with a standard step down barrel price drops $200-$300

^^^ I agree, that does look like a short rear site.

OP, this is a pic of an M94 rear sight, if this is what yours looks like, it is a sporterized M94:

Maple is not used for stocks very often. I think that stock is figured walnut, but need some sharp close-ups to be sure.

seriously. I'd love something like that for my son to hunt deer with. 6.5x55 is a great round. I'd bet that thing's a shooter. (plus I have dies, plenty of powder and bullets!!)
