There have been other photos posted before of the 1st Kavalry guards at the royal palace in Stockholm. I have on the way to me now a CD with some fresh photos taken a couple weeks ago by another collector friend who lives in Flora'duh.

Thought this one was pretty good of the horse trying to lick air... oh, and the carbines, too.

Both are cocked & on safe . The left one is off the leather pad . Both look like well used walnut stocks . You would think the palace guards would have arsenal new looking carbines for show . Pretty neat anyway .

Would they be blanks, live rounds, or cocked on an empty chamber?

Live rounds, cocked and locked with a round in the chamber. The Royal Guards allways have live ammo, regardless if they are armed with something "old" like the m/94-14 & m/38 or if they use a Glock 17, AK4, AK5 or the m/45 smg. No point of performing guard duty with an empty gun :)

They pass right outside my office window everyday at noonish this time of the year.

Best,
Anders (who pulled his share of guard duty in the Royal Guards back in the winter of 1989)

Most of the carbines in service are real beaters......

Seems like it would be tough to put those carbines into action with that spike on the top of thier helmets! Those 94/14 look cool with out the muzzle extensions. Great pic, thanks Dutchman. BadgerDog, looking foreward to your pictures,

A little hint as to why these carbines are beaters...

Very interesting.
They don't look in that bad condition to me...

Ok... found some time to take some pics.... I put them in the M94 photos section of the forum...

I haven't got under the wood yet, but as soon as I figure out how to get the front nose cap off without destroying it, I'll add those.

I don't think it's ever been off judging by the condition of the screw...

Regards,
Badger

The guard on the right seems to have the wrist of his rifle's stock rather wrapped up and it seems to be tethered through a loop on his blouse. Loaded, cocked & locked seems superfluous if my perception is correct. ? ed

As an older infantry CWO I must say that in the second pic from the top the guy on the right has installed the middle strap of his pack the wrong way.

Officers in charge, watch out!

This shows just the belt, uniform protector and retention strap.

Slanted bayonet frog. This is a very difficult item to find and is costly. In my own cavalry items this is the only piece I don't have.

K1 Stockholm Liv Guard at the palace. Same cavalry leather except white. All these m/94 carbines are carried loaded, chambered, cocked with the safety on. They are a fully functional tactical unit.

I left this one large because its so illustrative. These soldiers look so young. I hope they set those carbines down softly.
