Thread: Schultz & Larsen

  1. #1

    Schultz & Larsen

    My wife being a Dane has often mentioned Schultz & Larsen rifles, I have a feeling they long since stopped being made in Denmark but I could be very wrong here. Does anyone have anything good or bad to say about them? I do remember them making very good target shooting barrels a few years ago but other than that I have no idea.

    A couple of calls this morning confirmed the ML97-DL Sporter is in stock in the UK. They can also supply it with a 19mm barrel as standard which is handy. Problem now is given that wife will shoot it as well what is the better option, 6.5X47 Lap or 6.5X55SE? It will be used for "Out of Season" type competitions in Denmark and I can use either cartridge, recoil is going to be less with the X47 however she is quite capable of shooting either and it will be quite a heavy rifle. Accuracy wise a X55 may be marginally down. From an ethical viewpoint the X55 is the proper choice but I will be up against people shooting 6BR so that counts for very little....

    So, is anyone's wife shooting either cartridge, if so what do they prefer?

    If my wife shot more than a 20 gauge, I wouldn't dare behave the way I do sometimes

    The only time I saw her pull a face (Well technically she yelped and swore quite a lot) was shooting 7,62X54R armour piercing heavy ball wearing a T shirt, fair to say I did not enjoy it either. She knows her limits but I am determined to get her behind a .338 Lap one day.

    Not a problem buy which ever then buy the barrel in the other calibre,
    M97-DL is a switch barrel system only 2x 5mm bolts hold the barrel in.
    Go on the web site click products then barrels all the options are there.
    Mine shoots well with anything I have put through it, but the 6.5x47 is
    known for being inherently accurate.
    This is mine in 6.5x55

    Is that built on a Mauser 98 action? Beautiful rifle, makes me proud of my countrymen

    Ps. Ovenpaa, I assume your office is upstairs and that's how you came up with your username,,as it means exactly that in Danish?

    It has a three lug bolt very similar to a Barnard action,so it has a short 60degree bolt lift.
    Also the bolt locks into the barrel so the action has no pressure acting on it.
    Very smooth action and good trigger as standard more than pleased I bought it,
    just need to find the cash now to by the 308win barrel I have a space for on my ticket.

    Schultz and Larsen bolt at the side of a K98 bolt for comparison.

    It does look very similar to a Barnard and I must admit I prefer the shorter throw three lug bolts as well.

    My concern over switching from X55 to X47 is action length as I am not sure if a X47 would feed particularly well from a X55 Magazine.

    PKL - The name Ovenpaa comes from many years ago when the Viking first moved in, I was trying to learn Danish and she being fluent in English had no reason to teach me any more than the basics. Ovenpaa (pronounced more like 'Owenpo' ) means upstairs or on top. The Danes are far too acomadating to us Brits and will speak English (Usually very well) whenever they have the chance so my Danish is very poor.
