A Swedish Llugahminuegheman











Used to be the odd one a these in 6.5x55 around, if I remember correctly, and they were wonderful guns according to their owners. Back in the day my milsurp beater was a K98 capture that the Israelis rebarrelled to 308 and I was competent with it. The fellas shooting these things had no trouble keeping up with me so they must have been good guns. We never learned to pronounce the name properly so whenever you’re talking about these - just start gargling in something resembling Scandihoovian and everyone will know what you’re talking about.

  1. Would loooove to have one of those, but I'll scrimp by with my junky old Swedish Husky Mauser in 6.5. It shoots better than I can. Probably costs a bit less than it's semi auto sibling. Tree Mike

    1. Yep. I shot mine right out. i'd go to the range, one a the kids would grab it and my ammo and run away with it, and I'd have to go find it when it was time to go home. Everyone shoots these things well...

  2. I shot it's Arab cousin, the Hakim. My buddy had one. I think it shot 8mm like your K98 originally ate. I shot just under a can floating in a tank*, and it launched it 30 feet or more into the air. I only shot it once, never got the hang of the dust cover / bolt thingy. *Down here, a tank is a small pond that the rancher scrapes out to catch water. Usually they have a high bank on one side, so you can shoot down into the water. Much fun.

  3. Bought one a few Yeats ago, lower recoil than an AR15. Bolt will hurt you if are slow
