Our Assessment:  Husqvarna is a name that has pioneered the modern era.  Not of just firearms, but quality of everyday life items like engines, lawnmowers, motorcycles, sewing machines, stoves, typewriters, and much much more.   The company is obsessed with innovation and their over 330 year track record shows it.  Their innovative pursuit bleeds into their hunting rifles like the one you see here.  Chambered in 35 Whelen Brown, also known as “the deer killer”, this rifle is optimized for the hunt.  Coming from 1947, during the prime firearm manufacturing years of Husqvarna, this rifle is old and has seen many years, however it still radiates with beauty that Husky Actions are known for.  As a great poet once wrote of a returning king the same can be told of this rifle.  All that is gold does not glitter, Not all those who wander are lost; The old that is strong does not wither, Deep roots are not reached by the frost.  Become king of the hunt and crown yourself with this Swedish crown of a rifle.  It even comes with some very expensive brass.   Good Luck!
