    It reminds me of bush villages up here.

    In that everyone is armed. Even around the urban and road system parts of the state I've loaned people firearms before for fishing and hikes. I usually keep one around for that purpose. Though I sold my loaner off and probably should get another.

    Is that a modern production Krag?!
    Anyone know who made that and if they are available in the US?

    Tikka

    It looks like a Tikka and they are made in Norway so logical to me.

    Great idea! But I heard the polar bears are carrying the new kevlar backpacks.

    Tikka is from Finland as far as I know.

    It looks like a Krag style rifle though because it appears to have a magazine door on the side.

    We here in the US should follow the example set by Norway and implement laws that allow, encourage even, students to carry guns for protection. Let's do it for the children!!

    Wouldn’t it be correct to say “Armed Students on Svalbard” instead of “Armed Students in Norway.” It would be like describing armed students on Greenland as “Armed Students in Denmark.” It’s just plain incorrect.

    For those that don’t know Svalbard is a possession of Norway as Greenland is a possession of Denmark.

    Only foreigners would find this piece of non-news interesting... :p

    Is the rifle available in the US? I would think so. To me it looks like a Ruger. The white strip on the side is probably a sticker saying "University property. Rifle no. 11" or some such thing. It's definitely not a Krag. Although 6.5x55 Krags may very possibly have killed more polar bear than any other firearm in history, I'm pretty much 100% sure you won't find a single Krag on polar bear duty today.

    Cosmo, there is a small difference between Svalbard and Alaska. If you want to visit a national park on Svalbard, and the police find out you don't have a gun, they won't let you. Carry a gun, or stay indoors.

    Hey M67, I posted a thread in the rifle forum, but are there any quality rifle makers/companies in Norway right now?

    Archipelago of Svalbard

    Y'all DO know what an archipelago is, right?

    And y'all DO know where Svalbard is, right?

    North Sea, Arctic Circle, East of North Greenland, only a few hundred miles South of 90N,0W.

    Book your vacation now, and beat the rush.

    The rifle is a Ruger M-77 All Weater varient of some sort. Note the scales on the pistol-grip and on the foregrip. Also note the shape of the reciever, and the indentation in the sides of the buttstock.

    I really don't care what kind of guns they are. Fact is they got 'em, and that's good.

    I'm surprised they're teaching such things in a school anywhere on earth nowadays.

    Where did that come from?

    I will second that Iscurrire. Firearm safety training for children SHOULD be mandatory IMO.

    I saw a news program about these students who study mainly geology up on Spitsbergen island.
    The rifles are clearly shown on the video and they are Ruger stainless M77s for sure.
    They didn't mention caliber but .338 Winchester Magnum or .300 Winchester Magnum would be my guess.
    The video showed a training class for new shooters,(svhooters????), and the report of the rifles and the effects of recoil made it apparent they are some sort of magnum.
