    Carl Gustaf .243

    A friend of mine sadly died last month, his wife asked me to try & sell his rifles for her. this rifle is a Carl Gustaf .243, it was made in Sweden and is a very solid well made weapon, I went with Dave to buy this new about 8 years ago, he averaged 1 deer a year so I doubt this rifle has fired more than 200 rounds including zeroing.



    The marks on the stock were caused by his labs claws when he jumped into the car, other than that it is a good rifle. It comes with the hard case you see in the pics.




    Offers over 500 please, it is with an RFD here in Shropshire at the moment, there is also about 20 rounds of ammunition included.

    It looks like my .270 Carl Gustaf which is a model 2000 .
    They are excellent rifles with a good trigger and a steel detachable magazine .

    The rifle's a Swedish build on the Sauer action I believe - Excellent rifle - a great rifle for someone on a tight budget that can appreciate high quality and doesn't want go down the stainless synthetic route.

    Sauer, I think not !
    Mine has Carl Gustaf, Sweden, in large letters on the action and has the Royal Crown of assent as riflemaker to His Majesty.

    Stag - Just because it has engraving on it doesn't mean a thing. Badge engineering allied with royal assent is nothing new in the gun trade. eg. Many thousands of Mauser actions have been exported and built into stalking rifles over the years - some with assent.
    I'm certainly not knocking the Karl Gustaf - I believe it was built on one of the best actions available and I still think that was base crafted by Sauer. I may be proved wrong tho' but put the two side by side & you will have to admit they are near as dammit the same.
    Maybe some of our Swedish members could arbitrate on this one?
