AG-42B Ljungman

The AG-42 was the first semiauto rifle adopted by the Swedish army, as well as the first production rifle to use a direct gas impingement operating system. Today we're taking a closer look at the Ljungman - how it operates and how to disassemble it. Enjoy!

I have one of these rifles as well as every other rifle ever chambered for
the 6.5 x 55 Swedish round. Its an accurate gun but every time you shoot it
there is a PUFF of gas / smoke right in your line of sight where the bolt
opens via that gas tube. I find it an annoying feature of the gun. Also it
will hurt your fingers if you are not careful racking the bolt open with
the mag out.

Great channel , and as Vault boy said,"L" is silent think "jungman" :-)

Автор "Marky Mark" Markus Gaming/LurkingFan4 ( назад)
The "lj" in "Ljungman" is pronounced as "j" so you pronounce it as a
"Jungman" rifle, and just FYI, the Swedish word for rifle is pronounced
similarly to the German word "Gewher" but the G is pronounced as "j".

I was just about to say that looks like a Hakim and they you pulled one
out! Very interesting. You see Egyptian copies for sale pretty frequently,
but I've never seen a Swedish original.

the L is silent. And Sweden does not use yards, we use meters, so it should
be 700 meters.

When the text "direct gas impingement" showed up u lost me.

For me, that system is total bullcrap as it leads the gas with all its dirt
and residue right back into the action.

Автор PotatoGunsRule ( назад)
I have one of these and it is easily my favorite of all my rifles. It is
very accurate, easy to shoot, low recoil, and just plain neat. If you have
a malfunction it is NOT quickly cleared, due to the lack of a bolt handle.
A stovepipe ended my attempt at the "drop 8" at a falling plate match in
about 2008. Here is the video.

It's actually supposed to be pronounced more like "Yungman" or "Jungman".
Kinda similar to "youngman" but more like you said it in the video. Only

The only thing about this rifle that isn't idiot proof is the "finger trap"
bolt charging mechanism. You sure don't want to have a finger in there when
the bolt charges forward.

I had one and absolutely loved it and could hit a dime at 100 yards. They
are extremely accurate.

So there was nothing pushing the bolt? "Just" a puff of gas sent it flying?

I wonder why they didn't just go with the traditional bolt handle to pull
it back. Seems odd that you would have to first push it forward then pull
it back. I like it though.

the FNC came in the late 80's and the final Mausers where phased out in the

Автор AdurianJ ( назад)
6,5x55mm was the standard Swedish ammunition for the infantry before we
went to 7,62 NATO with the AK4 (G3 variant). There was 8mm machine guns but
those where used in not so mobile settings like AAA machine guns and
vehicle mounts.
For instance the m/39 maching gun (licence built Browning m1919) had
barrels in both calibers.

When Sweden bought the KSP 58 (FN MAG) in the 1950's those where chambered
for 6,5x55mm these where latter rebareled and designated KSP 58B while the
6,5mm variant got the KSP 58A designation.
The navy seems to have been the last ones to use the KSP 58A probably
because they got leftovers and ship boarding parties used the 6,5mm Mauser
during the cold war, and there where tons of 6,5mm ammo in storage !

The L in Ljungman is silent. Ljung is Calluna (Calluna vulgaris). Ljungman
is s surname. In this case, the name comes from the company that
manufactured the rifle and the company got its name from the founder. The
company was named: AB C.J. Ljungmans Verkstäder

model I have was made in 1874 which was before they started making them
with a captive box magazine. but with 1875-1888 being made with a magazine,
and the conversion being offered, I wondered how rare a single shot dutch

When you are cleaning the M42B and disassemble and remove the breach
block/breach carrier, that big double spring on the inside can shoot the
breach carrier back at you if your not holding it quite right. Be careful .

Автор John H ( назад)
Yes , I know what you mean . In Canada also , very regulated . Only very
recently the Canadian government canceled the gun registration because of
the high cost and the recession and the number of complaints from the good
gun owners .

Автор Salpeteroxid ( назад)
Nope, can't say i ever saw it until this video actually. Gun ownership is
extremely regulated over here.

Автор John H ( назад)
Good Day and greatings to you also ! from Canada . Did you ever see or use
an M42B with the sidemount scope ?

Автор John H ( назад)
If you happen to want to use those holes for a modern day side mount scope
remember those holes are metric threads not SAE . You may end up having
your gun smith re tapping those little holes . If you should locate a real
M42 side mount scope , CALL ME FAST !

Автор John H ( назад)
Letter "B" is also indicating that the the gas return tube is "Stainless
Steel". Also called AG M42B or just M42B . The prefix "AG" is fairly
uncommonly spoken . As well if you see a row of 3 threaded holes spaced
about 3" apart just below the range adjustment knob , those are for the
mounting of a "Side Mount Scope" , variable from 4 to 20 power , it was
about a foot long . If your M42B has the 3 holes this means you have the
"Sniper Model" .

As a sidenote; A 7.62 NATO converted AG42 was mounted on top of the swedish
9cm antitank gun and used with tracer bullets to verify your aim before
firing a BIG 9cm round...

Don't quote me on it but I think I've seen an unconverted variant being
sold by a gunsmith I know locally. It didn't have a humps on the cocking
cover that I recall. No price was offered and I didn't think to ask at the
time. If it was an original, I'm curious how much it would be worth. Any

Автор Nick U. ( назад)
I agree. The bolt open to the air would decrease the amount of carbon
getting into it. That being said, I still prefer not having the mechanism
exposed to it at all. That's just a matter of preference though.

Автор tonedeaf49 ( назад)
I've wondered about that, too. I think what makes a difference here is that
once the bolt carrier moves back the gas and carbon vent into open air,
where the AR15 type rifles have the gas and fouling going into the middle
of the bolt/bolt carrier group with no way to escape.

Автор tonedeaf49 ( назад)
It's interesting how similar the direct impingement system and tilting bolt
are to the French MAS 40, which was just starting production when the
Germans invaded. After the war it developed into the MAS 49 and MAS 49/56.
Got to wonder if theSwedish engineers were familiar with the MAS, and why
the Germans didn't pick up the idea.

Автор Thomas Heurlin ( назад)
You should pronounce it Jung-mann.

Автор king kong ( назад)
is there any chance you could do more videos on Swedish guns???

Автор John Banfield ( назад)
Could the bolt release be operated with the bolt carrier forward or would
the spring then return the carrier and trap your thumb anyway?

Автор ScreamingSturmovik ( назад)
ik it's not important for weapons let alone for military weapons but is it
possible for the direct impingement system to operate on the bottom of the
gun? i say this cuz i like russian guns but i don't like how the receiver
area is big and block like, unlike the Garand's and M14's lines which i
think r awsome :)

All that hot gas and carbon going directly into the mechanism causing
increased fouling of the bolt. As civilians using it, this is no problem as
we have the luxury of being able to keep it clean at any time. However, as
part of a battle implement, it requires a soldier to strip, clean and
maintain more often. This could be a real problem when the bullets start
flying. I despised my C7 (Canadian variant of the M16) for that very

Автор Nick U. ( назад)
Direct gas impingement. It's a nice idea in theory, but a sad reality. It's
still a beautiful rifle. But a real pain acquiring ammunition.

Yeah - I just did another video of the Ljungman (out at the range, this
time) and pronounced it properly for a change. :)

You pronounce it right except for the L, don't pronounce it at all. Nice
video, greetings from Sweden.

Автор Muh Gunz ( назад)
The French MAS semi-autos are direct impingement too and do not have a gas
regulator (other than to turn it off for launching grenades on some models)
and they worked very reliably in North Africa. Is the design that much
different that the Hakim needed a gas regulator? And speaking of, will you
do a video on the MAS semi-autos? I find them very interesting guns.

One more thing they uppgraded was the gas tube, in AG42B they replaced the
