    These are superb Swedish made rifles. They are designed on one of the best actions ever developed, the Mauser rifle action.

    Here's a sample of some used ones available from one dealer: https://simpsonltd.com/husqvarna-rifles/

    History of the company: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Husqvarna_Vapenfabrik

    The company ceased operation in 1972.

    I have / had one (Smith and Wesson trademarked) Husky 98 Small Mauser action I bought an estate sale unfired in preservative. I cleaned it and subsequently built loads for it. it shoots sub moa at 200 yards consistently with Bergers in Lapua brass.

    The stock trigger (60's vintage) leaves a lot to be desired but you can replace it with a Timney #301 featherweight trigger. Mine is my backup stick for when I go on hunts. I think (my opinion only) that it has possibly the smoothest bolt action and lockup of any stick I own and I own some very expensive custom built long guns.

    Smith only imported about 1500 into this country before switching to Howa and then discontinued them altogether. You can trace the lineage on the Husky website btw.

    I'm very careful with mine as mine is in pristine condition and I am the only person to ever fire it.

    Mine is still in the safe. Most of the 98 actions were built by FN, the balance by Husky. 96 actions are largely all husky. A number of U.S. firms rebranded Husky rifles.

    Mine is a Husqvarna HVA imported by High Standard For Sears, marked J. C. Higgins.
