    Swedish Rifles - Can't beat them for quality

    Sold all my SVT-40's except three mint condition ones an a dozen or so pretty nice ones
    Sold SKS rifles by the dozen

    However never gonna let my Swedish babies go.

    K-31's are works of art. An those Ljungmans are just divine, far superior than Garands.

    Yet they were always cheap to buy. I would buy these in massive bulk at Wholesale sports before they went down under. Cleaning up the beaver chew on the stocks with oven cleaner worked amazingly well. the before an after was astounding. All those old codgers who scoffed at them, didn't respect them, now ringing my phone off the hook for one. They'll never learn

    An I bought PALLETS of that 7.5x55 ammo. I can literally make furniture out of it.

    Hope you all got yours while you could. Heard from the Swede boys another big batch might come in around 2022 when the next lot of old boys liquidate their closets.

    But if anyone has a milling machine, I could let a Ljungman go. Like a bridgeport or lagun

    Don’t they call it 7.5x55 Swiss for a reason?

    Im confused. K31's are straight pull SWISS rifles. Never used by the Swedes. And 7.5x55 is a swiss round, not swedish in the slightest....

    A Swede would have to do an awful lot of shooting to get to 7.5 mm :-)

    LOL Yeah I know, I forgot to add that in the title. I got that Swiss/Swede toss up in my head. Love the Swedish mausers, 6.5 SAMI spec is getting harder to find, Calgary seems to stock it all but that's a 6 hour drive to & back

    What else has Mom's basement got in it?

    Ammo, camo and things that go "blammo".

    I'm guessing that's a jab at the recent "Sanctuary City" of Edmonton fiasco. Yep, going the same way as those Europeans
