Thank you arilar, well done. My m/94 based CG63 is dated 1964. I've always like the modification of the m/94 bolt handle when they were built into CG63.
Um, I could be wrong Arilar, but your stock looks like it might be the very same one as the sketch...Got this sketch on introduction of CG 62 that later never got into production. Makes me sure that my stock on pics above is from a try-out rifle CG 62. What do you think?
Hi Pettson,No, Mats P is not the creator of that drawing. It is older than the Internet...
The "FSR approved gunsmith program" wasn't started until the late 70's or early 80's, if memory serves me right.
And why is all this in the military forum?
Okey..have to back up slightly....Phoned my contact...This is how it turned out...He was test-shooting because of member-ship in Eskilstuna shootingclub as a skilled junior-shooter but that was already in the first steps of a new FSR-rifle in 1961. When things evolved during 1962 he was occupied outside Eskilstuna. When back some years later and involved with FFV he was given this stock that I have shown. He thinks (but dont know more for the moment) that maybe a handful CG 62 were made before CG 63 version 1 was born. Remember that CG 63 version 1 was approved by FSR but denied by the military. Probably more CG 63 version 1 were produced than CG 62 but this is also a guess. When my contact got the CG 62 stock it was lacking hand-guard, buttplate and grip-plate. Of course he dont know where the rifled action went...Since this stock came from the person that originally tested the rifle , I think it is clearly the same stock as in the advertisement .
Did the fellow mention what happened to the rifled action ? Does he know how many were made ?
CG 62 was the working-name for what , after several adjustments and versions (e.g. CG version 1), became the final CG 63. Those sketches shown has never been intended for public use. CG 62 Biathlon Rifle became a commercial model. Number 62 was not taken when Biathlon Rifle saw day-light! Guess because of delay change was done regarding the shooting-rifle so finally number 63 choosen.Sure , we are interested in more info on the CG63's .
Also , it seems strange that Carl Gustaf would use the same CG62 model number for the folding stock biathalon rifle ????????
