    Husqvarna 30-06 weight

    Would anyone have an idea of what a 1960s wood stock husqvarna 30-06 would weigh (approx)?

    Thanks

    yea, I have one a 98 also in 9.3x62, 25" tube with irons, and four rounds down, 7 lbs even.
    Mawzer308, we will have to meet up, and go for a 9.3 walk sum time, once I am back full time, flying in tomorrow.
    Husqvarna, lightweights are nice well balanced rifles.

    Have just weighed mine, its a 1640 with the 24" barrel rather than the 1600 with the 20" barrel, has a Weaver 3-10 Grand Slam in Weaver mounts, and a sling and it weighs 3.860 kg. husky were making lightweight rifles long before anyone knew what lightweight was. Have some info on Husky history and models etc if you are interested.
