    That looks like a really nice sporter. Nice lines the way a vintage sporter should be.

    Today's crap is far cry from how they are supposed to be made.

    9.3x62mm is becoming fairly popular up here in Alaska. Husqvarna's have always been popular up here since they ALWAYS feed. You did very well on that deal...
    If only I had seen it first,,,

    The scope aint that close and the recoil is quite manageable.
    Fitted the recoil pad today.
    Will use it as it stands for this season and after that the stock and pad get a new finish. And I might fit a taller rear sight, exspress style :D

    Some testing today, range time tomorrow.

    Looks great, trultemor; is it just a Mauser action chambered in 9.3x62?

    I thought it was a dirt bike thread. Well, that's what my mind jumped to.

    If my memory & research serves me correctly, Husqvarna of Sweden has been making firearms since the late 1600's. But it sure would be cool to go back thru their archives and see if they had made any chain saws or dirt bikes back then as well......:rolleyes:

    Yes.
    Husqvarna ordered their actions from FN.

    Cool, I would imagine 9.3x62 would be great for larger game from the look of it. Power of 30-06 with a bigger bullet. :D

    Just got back from a 30 day long America Road trip. My C & R was waiting on my coffee table for me. Called the seller of my Husqy (that I bought almost 7 weeks ago) and gave him my info. Hopefully this baby will land on my front porch by Friday. Will post some pics after her first range trip.

    Good times. And hopefully she doesn't kick like those frickin JC Higgins 12 gauges I bought last month. Ouch squared......:D
