M/96 Gustavs Swedish Mauser marked "1915" but has M/38 features, so likely reworked to that configuration.

Still got a good looking figure for a 100 year old!

Mossberg 146b-a. They were made from 1952 to 1958. No sights, but came with a period accurate scope. Not in the best of shape, but still functions accurately. Not bad for $125 at a LGS.
