This is a Swedish Ljungman AG42B Rifle in 6.5x55mm. The is in 90%+ condition with an excellent bore, finish, and matching numbers. There is an 1.5" crack in the butt of the stock.
The Ag m/42 entered production at the Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori in Eskilstuna in 1942. Some 30 000 rifles were manufactured in all for the Swedish Army . This was a relatively small number of weapons and the standard infantry rifle remained the 6.5 mm m/96 Mauser.
After a number of issues had been discovered, including a serious problem with rusting gas tubes, the existing stocks of the rifle were modified between 1953 and 1956, and the reworked rifles were designated Ag m/42B. Modifications included a stainless steel gas tube, two knobs on the breech cover, a new elevation knob for the rear sight, a rubber case-deflector, new magazines and new cleaning rod. The Ag m/42B was replaced in Swedish service in the 1960s by the HK G3 derived Ak4.
The Ag m/42 is operated by direct gas imngment gas system, similar to that of the M16/M4.
The Ag m/42 uses the 6.5x55mm cartridge loaded into a removable 10-round box magazine. In practice, however, the magazine usually remained attached to the rifle while it was loaded from the top with five-roundstripper clips. Like the British Lee-Enfield. The Ag m/42's magazine was intended to be removed only for cleaning.
