Product Information

This is a rare WWII Swedish Ljungman AG42 or M/42 Self Loading Rifle. Although Sweden remained neutral during WWII it remained under threat and feared invasion from Nazi German and the Russian's, both counties eager to increased its territories. However it did allow the German army use it's railways and let the Allies use it's air bases and train forces from Norway and Denmark, but fearing an invasion Sweden quickly produced it own military self loading rifle and in 1942 the Automatgever M/42 was adopted by its armed forces. Very few were made ; only 30,000. This is example is dated 1945. They have a fairly unique action and are cocked by pushing the top cover forward over the bolt and then back, very clever!  It has the correct sling fitted. The brass disc is often mistaken as regimental , it is in fact reference to the rifles calibre , accuracy and bore quality. A rare rifle from WWII that would fit with either allied or an axis collection.
