I wanted to see if any of you have had real experience with this Swedish designed DI carbine in 7.62x39.

http://www.gunbroker.com/Auction/ViewItem.aspx?Item=189719100 - starts at $595, BIN @ $795.

Looks to be fairly rare... I wonder how many have been mistakenly sold by folks as an "Egyptian SKS"?

I owned one; non chromed bore, had functioning issues due to a weak op spring. Cool little carbine but I wouldn't pay 795 for another one.

Well that obviously because it's DI. If it was piston driven....

;)

OP, I haven't fired one but have handled one and think they are pretty cool. Can't offer much other than that. Check out http://www.surplusrifleforum.com/index.php for some more information. Good luck! -Ben
