Anyone here own one? There's one in the EE and it looks pretty interesting.

What do you want to know about it? It's a copy of the Swedish AB-42 Lujungman (spelling??) rifle. Overall, quality varies from piece to piece. Somewhat delicate action, and tight tolerances prone to jamming with blowing dust/dirt. With good ammo, gas system properly adjusted, and no junk in the action, it can be a relatively reliable, good gun to shoot. Anyone else have more to say?

When you come up to the quarry shoot next saturday I'll let you shoot mine and you can see for yourself. I'll bring my Ljungman for comparison

ETA: I picked up my Hakim when I was in AZ back in August for under $400.

Doesn't look like I'm going to be able to make it

They are nice rifles if you find one even in decent conditions. I always found them to be overly heavy and feeling much longer then they really are. The gas system can be an issue, but you can make an adjustment tool from a nut driver to help this out. The rifle is very loud with the flash sup. so you can have fun pissing off some Remchester folks at the range.
Overall nice rifle and can be very accurate.
