From wiki: "The Automatgevär m/42 (Ag m/42, outside of Sweden commonly known as the AG42, AG-42 or Ljungman) is a Swedish semi-automatic rifle which saw limited use by the Swedish Army from 1942 until the 1960s.
The Ag m/42 was designed by Erik Eklund of the AB C.J. Ljungmans Verkstäder company of Malmö around 1941, and entered production at the Carl Gustafs Stads Gevärsfaktori in Eskilstuna in 1942. Some 30,000 rifles were manufactured in all for the Swedish Army. This was a relatively small number of weapons and the standard infantry rifle remained the 6.5 mm bolt action m/96 Mauser. The Ag m/42B was replaced in Swedish service in the 1960s by the Heckler & Koch G3-derived Ak 4
The Ag m/42B was used as the basis for the Egyptian Hakim rifle, which uses the 7.92x57mm Mauser cartridge. Sweden sold the machinery to Egypt and the Hakim was therefore built with the same machine tools used for the Ag m/42B. Eventually, the Hakim was modified into a carbine using the intermediate-power 7.62x39mm Russian cartridge, called the Rashid or Rasheed.
 OperationThe Ag m/42 is operated by means of a direct impingement gas system, similar to that of the French MAS-49 and American M16 rifles. The Ag m/42 also uses a tilting breech block like the Tokarev SVT-38/SVT-40, the MAS-49 and FN FAL rifles."
ABOUT $450 TO $800 ON TODAY'S MARKET.
The AG-42B is a very well made interesting rifle. The trouble is that they blow up. I've seen two of them that blew up. The parts were scattered up to 25 yards away. It was a good thing that no-one was killed. We found the fired case and it was apparent that the case had not properly chambered. Somehow the rifle fired out of battery. This was with Norma factory ammo.
You could not pay me enough money to fire one of these rifles. They are dangerous.
