Anybody know anything about this brand? I've been offered one in trade. It's a 9.3x62. If it's a decent gun I might just pick it up,and off my ruger at the same time.
I read from Widforss catalogue 1962 : "Studsare "Stiga" . Mausersystem. Pipa av Bofors-stål, 60 cm, precisionsborrad av Schultz & Larsen, Otterup, berömda för sina tävlingsvapen" (barrel out of Bofors steel, accuracy-drilled by Schultz & Larsen, Otterup, famous for their match-rifles).For instance, we have no idea what they used for barrels.
...uh oh, there Kriggie, buying them all up!!!precisionsborrad av Schultz & Larsen, Otterup
The 3 Stiga rifles I have seen were all built on M96 actions. The conversion looked quite well done, and appeared very similar to a M46.Thanks for the information arilar. The quality of the S&L barrels is definitely not in question and using a M98 action is a completely different class of firearm, as far as pressures go. I have not had the opportunity to examine a Stiga up close, but the ones I have seen listed in dealer sites and having photos have had m/96 actions.
