Scored a Husqvarna 30/06.I have a cell phone pic of it but it is not in hand yet ,as I still have to pick it up.Very hopefull this will be a good shooter.I think a SS 3-9 will be nice on this as long as there are no mounting hardware issues.Anyone shooting a Husqvarna?
Ill post pics when I get itExcellent

Yessirree....I love my Husqvarna.  I hope you like yours.  I have never thought of putting a scope on it but maybe I will try it.  I think a 3-9 would be great.  I will be able to tell what kind of tree it is before I get to it.  Also good for scouting deer in the woods.

Stihl  or jonsared make superior saws anyway!Big Grin

No way! Stihl makes a much better saw than Husqvarna, but Husqvarna rifles are way better than Stihl's.
 
sorry, couldn't resist

Actually I like both Stihl and Husqvarna and I own both.  And I would like a Husqvarna in 6.5x55.

I owned a custom rifle, 30-06, built on Husqvarna action and barrel.  It was absolutely the most beautiful rifle I have ever seen.  I was offered $2000.00 for the stock, before the rifle was complete.  Accuracy from the Husky was very impressive.  .25MOA for the 3 rounds I fired through it, my gunsmith achieved the same (he was a former Scout Sniper).  It had a jeweled bolt, Jewel trigger, muzzle brake by Magna-Port, action was blue printed and trued.  QUITE a piece.  My wife I traded it for my rock fireplace...
I want the rifle back. 
If I can find a picture, I'll post.  The ecopies were on a hard drive (PC) that crashed and the GEEK SQUAD stinks... they recovered NOTHING and still charged me almost $300.00.

I used to have an FN-actioned Husqvarna Super Sporter ( 1950-1954).  It was a 30/06 and very accurate.  Someone had glass bedded the entire stock and barrel channel and had put on a Timney Sportman's trigger.  I loved it.  I had a Nikon Monarch 2X7 on top of it.  ( But I sold it back in 2001 or so when one of my daughter's needed money for a school trip....) 

Anyway.............I once had one!!!  Smile

Don't sell any of them if you get your hands on one!!!  Bucky

Husqvarna as an excellent reputation as a bolt action gun manufacturer and commands the utmost of respect in my opinion based on all of my reading.  I have been searching for one for quite sometime.  Congratulations on your purchase and when you can solve your computer issues, please post some pics and maybe some targets.

     Say What!!  Is the button flush or sticking out of the floorplate?  I put an aftermarket floorplate release button on my military mauser action. Push the button in and move the floorplate to the rear. IT CAN BE HARD!

  Gonna be interesting to see some pics.  I'm not all that familiar w/Husqvarnas but I can't see why yours has no hinged floorplate.  Does yours have the thumb slot on the left side of the receiver like this?:
      
 
   Or is it soild like this?:

You push the button and then slide the entire floorplate backwards (toward the trigger) and the entire floorplate, spring and follower will come off in your hand.  Voilá!!  Detachable floorplate.

Hummmmm.............Husqvarna, let me count the ways......

A Custom Husky 06 w/ Hart barrel, McMillan stock, Black-T finish, Buehler 2pc mounts and naturally, a B&L Elite 4000.


A 30/06 8000 series lightweight. Schnabel forend, straight comb w/cheekpiece. POS Leupold 2-7 onboard.



Lastly, yet another POS 30/06 (grin) model 9000 deluxe with POS Leupold 4x. I actually recently sold this one.

And Husky chainsaws smoke Sthil saws all day long. Sthil is the HomeDepot of chainsaws.

Actually, Husky is sold by Home Depot. Stihl can only be bought at authorized Stihl dealers that service them. Home Depot can't service Husky's.
I have an 042 AV and a 361 Stihl.  My neighbor has an XP Husqvarna. I can tell you that the XP can't touch the  Stihls I have. I am sure the forest model Huskys are better than the XP.
I have used both brands amongst many others. I looked at Husky, Jonsered and Stihl before I settled on the 361.
I say Stihl smokes Huskys all day long.Chainsaw
