I'm looking for information on this rifle. There is very little available online. Any info should be helpful.

I've never hear of it, but I'm sure it's very accurate.
Also, at first glance, I thought it looked like a Win. 52 clone, but I'm sure it's not.

If it's stamped "HVA-Carl Gustaf - Sweden", that marking was used after Husqvarna and Carl Gustaf were merged sometime in the early 1970s. I have seen quite a few centerfire rifles with that marking in Europe but never here in the USA or in rimfire form. I am sure a European member will chime in who is more familiar with that model. If it is in the USA it was probably brought back from Europe by a serviceman as I doubt they were ever imported here.

It would appear that there is indeed very little information available. I hope to learn more soon.

This is what the rifle looks like in the flesh, so to speak. It has a single stage trigger that breaks very nicely just under a pound. There is a "bloop" tube that screws on the end of the muzzle and a movable weight (not shown) that attaches to the tube or barrel. The bottom of the forestock is flat and about 2.5" wide. I haven't been able to try it out yet as my range has been closed for a few weeks. I'm hoping to shoot it within a few weeks.

Has the profile of a running boar rifle. I have a Husqvarna gunmaking history book at home. I donít recall ever seeing this model. But I will check.

A very neat looking rifle and it does appear to be a running bore configuration.
I looked to see if it was addressed in my copy of "Husqvarna Kulvapen 1870-1970" and couldn't find anything related. Obviously the OP's rifle post dates my 1970 Husqvarna reference.

The flat forestock would seem to make it less than ideal for shooting as a running boar rifle.

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I just picked up one of these old rifles. Came with all the accessories, even a dovetail rail.
Does anyone know what Weaver bases would fit this? 35 is a bit too wide.
Also any idea how many were produced?

I would have bet Weaver #35 bases would have fit. That's what I remembered having on mine.

If you can measure the receiver diameter and post it the base size will be easy to determine.
