Carl Gustav M80 myths

Inläggav VspecII » 26 aug 2018, 16:24

Hi Friends!

My name is Michal, and I'm sport shooter.

Lack of information in my country brings me here, to homeland of Sweedish mausers. Few months ago, during 300m prone shooting competition i had opportunity to shoot one of the M80 Gustavs. Love from first sight/shot. Good looking, accurate, solid, accurate, well made, and of course accurate. I decided to buy one.

But there is huge problem to get one here, in Poland. There is lot of M63's, but lacks in M80. I was able to find few of them, but they looked weird, sellers had had also totaly strange informations like:

1. M80 is M63 system in different (sport) stock (for me it is not true, in my opinion M80 has thicker barrel, but I haven't seen both rifles side by side)
2. M80 was made in few configurations, with different diopters
3. Some said that true M80 is singleloader, another it has 5 round magazine?

So what is the truth? Is there any place/shop/web portal in Sweden where I can find one of these rifles??

Best Regards

Michal

Yes the CG80 has a thicker barrel, different bolthandle with large plastic knob. But thats about it.
2. M80 was made in few configurations, with different diopters
Yes it's true, I had a Busk diopter with some different filters. Yellow and Brown
3. Some said that true M80 is singleloader, another it has 5 round magazine?
It's not a singleloader, 5 round magazine just as the CG63

So what is the truth? Is there any place/shop/web portal in Sweden where I can find one of these rifles??

Stay away from negative people, they have a problem for every solution.
