But where does it come from that we associate only these few weapons with the notion of Swedish military rifles? 1623 as the year when the king introduced a recruitment system can be considered the year in which the military originated in Sweden. Of course, rifles from this period may be of great interest to collectors, but today they are barely usable due to the use of black powder. On the other hand, the current rifles of the Swedish army should not be available as weapons of war and are also, because of their low age, for collectors uninteresting. The era of weapons that remains is from the middle of the 19th to the middle of the 20th century. Marked by the rapid technical and military development, this time is an extremely interesting field for a collection. But to be clear, of course, the Swedish military rifles of Waffen Ferkinghoff are not only for the showcase, but also prove themselves in use with shooters and hunters. The best-known and most popular are the rifles m / 94, m / 96 and m / 38, which are called "schweden mausers" in German-speaking and "swedish mauser" in English-speaking areas. The Swedes came to their name because the system was initially made by Mauser and later built in Sweden under license from Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori and Husqvarna. The trigger was that the Swedish military realized that his black powder weapons - Remington M1867 and Jarmann M1884 - were no longer up to date. For the new, more powerful smokeless powders, a state-of-the-art cartridge was developed, the 6.5x55mm (known as 6.5mm Mauser / SE (C.I.P.) / Krag / Swedish Mauser). Its successor, the famous Mauser 98 system, has taken over many design features from it, such as the wing safety or cylinder lock with two locking lugs and differs only in a few details. Here we see already all the basics found in today's rifles (NC powder, stable modern system). Add to this the consistently excellent production quality, as Sweden never had been at war and had to rationalize its production. Already in Sweden at the time of its introduction, many competitions were held at distances of about 300, from which developed the civil Swedish Match Rifles . Due to the excellent state of preservation and the outstanding precision, the Swedes are very popular with both hunters and sport shooters. Waffen Ferkinghoff has many Weapon Parts , also for their Used Guns , in stock. For inexperienced people it is always surprising what results are possible with these 100-year-old weapons. Mind that, in the majority of of cases they are only equipped with a diopter, instead of a riflescope. The Swedish Military Rifles are more demanding for their shooter, but also enable a sweeter triumph over many modern high-performance rifles. A closer look at the weapon, the plaques and stamps, might be confusing, however there is a system behind it. Further information on gotvapen.se . This is a good explanation of schwedenmauser.de.
