    I just did a search and got four hits on this forum for "Schultz and Larsen Classic" and a lot more on Google
    Just a tip, but searches work better if the spelling is right

    i found several bits of info but i really wanted to see what the lads thought on here ... there are only 8 shop workers i think making them or did make them and office staff so small company but quite bespoke overall...

    Hi there,

    S&L are a wonderful company, very local to where I grew up in Denmark before I moved to the UK. My father in fact, was a friend and shooting buddy of Schultz. I believe they purchased the old Otterup business, which as far as I recall was predominantly a target shooting focused company. They made some very good 7.62mm target rifles with open sights, quite forward thinking in stock design, you will see parallels between them and the recent McMillan stocks in fact! The Otterup barrels are some of the best barrels I have ever seen and used, they are traditionally drilled and rifled and lapped, usually hot caustic blued. They are made of very high quality steel and will last literally a lifetime and a half, I would be surprised to find a shot out Otterup barrel.

    So I believe S&L purchased the Otterup company and started producing rifles based on Mauser 98 actions, which they later 'improved' with their own design, and then later designed the switch barrel and take down models.

    Personally I find them very beautiful and if I could afford, I would love to own one.

    They of course, also make the 'hard core' suppressor (moderator), which unfortunately looks like an adult toy more than a moderator, so does not seem to have attracted the attention it deserves

    I could be off on a few things, but I thing the general gist is about right. hope this helps.

    hi thank you for that message i appreciate the time you took to place it on here, it does reaffirm my facts i have found and the quality is classed as exceptional, I did find that not sure in one year late 90's or early 2000's it was i think the classic or victory was voted the most accurate rifle in its class not sure calibre for the value ... but overall good i have read, only negative was a comment on a forum that said" not heard of them that says it all not well known so poor quality" ... the website i also found i think is now defunct Schultz Larsen but they look really good in wood no plastic... etc .. a video is also on youtube but more comments would be helpful... thanks all.

    the mod looks impressive along with their muzzle breaks!

    I've handled a few S&L rifles and they have all seemed well made and well priced. Strange that they are not more popular here in Sweden. A bit like the late Varberger rifles. Made in Sweden, well made and well priced but never that popular. Funny old world.
