I have several Husqvarna H5000 Featherweight rifles, .308, 270, 30-06, 7mm as well as Carl Gustav rifles who actually bought Husqvarna and did a slow transition from the Mauser action to the push feed design before finally closing their doors on the sporting rifle section of the company.

There was so many different companies using the HVA action or small ring Mauser action its hard to keep track of them all, Sears,JC Higgins, Smith & Wesson, Carl Gustav, Sauer not to mention model #s, 1600,1640, 3000, 4000, 4100, 5000, 8000,9000, crown grade.

I have a Cpl custom Rifles built on the Husqvarna H5000 HVA action,

280 AI, 24" #1 Benchmark 1-9 twist barrel, Wildcat Stock, Timmy trigger




My second one is a 6.5-284, same parts as the above rifle



Here's a mint condition Husky H5000 30-06 with a butt pad added
Maple Ridge,BC, Canada and when I can as many days as possible at our family cabin on Loon Lake,BC

They are pretty good looking rifles. I would carry one. :)

I like them all and wouldn't give it a second thought to buying or using any one of them.  Thanks for sharing the pictures of them.

I shoot cases with a belt because I feel the other cartridges need to pull their trousers up.

Sorry... Yesterday was the last and final day for any and all complaints whatsoever.

I agree I have a Riihimaki Sako L46 that's a pre-vixen that's not fancy but pretty in it's own way.  Here's a link to one just like mine:

I ran across a Husqvarna in 9.3x57 many years ago, for cheap, and like a fool, not knowing what it was or the utility of the 9.3x57 round, didn't buy it.  Sure wish I had.  It was a wood stocked gun, simply and beautifully made.  Wish I had it in the safe.  As well as the Whitworth Mauser (English  company) in 7x57 I could have bought for under $300.  On that one, I just didn't have the coin at the time, though.

I do have a Chilean 1912 in 7x57 (built in Austria by Steyr) which has been sporterized, but wearing the original barrel (albeit shortened to 23"), and a 2004 Remington 700 Classic in 8x57, which is a real jewel (though also plain and simple in design and execution).  I'd like to round out the set one day with a 6mmRem (perhaps in a Ruger 77?) and a 257Rob (in a Winchester Featherweight?), and a Husqvarna in 9.3x57, even though the 9.3x57 is really a wildcat off of the 8x57.  Plenty of fun in these old rounds, even if they never even approach my Weatherbys in terms of velocity or energy.

If your interested, there is quite a large amount of information on this site:  https://forums.gunboards.com
If you hit on the HVA bolt actions link - you will pretty much get an idea on all  of the different rifles made.
I have a 1640 and a Carl Gustaf (my favorite). They are well made rifles!
