What parts break/ wear out? Spare parts to buy?

Post by KneverKnew »

What parts are most susceptible to wear/breakage in the Ljungman? I'm ordering some guard screw washers and a new recoil spring from SS and would like to get everything necessary for a proper parts kit. Thanks.

What spare parts are contained in the "tin box" found in the Ag42 cleaning kit? Where is the best place to purchase one of these?

Also, IF my barrels pitting turns out to adversely affect it's accuracy, I'd like to purchase and install a fresh barrel.
I see "original Swedish Ljungman barrels" for sale in places for around $150, and then SS has then "NOS" (which I take as being original Ljungman barrels) for $50. Is there a difference in quality/accuracy?

How do I change a Ljungman barrel? Tools needed?

Maybe sheepdawg can direct you, he's a Swede connaisseur on bolt action rifles and may know sources for what you seek.

I'm starting to think I should post my Ljungman questions directly in the Swedish bolt action rifle section. Looks as if this semi-auto section doesn't get much activity.

I prefer to manually throw my bolt. :mrgreen: Only thing I know about Ljungmans is it's too hard to spell and they eject brass like 20 feet.

I have 2 complete cleaning sets, but so far I haven't had to use anything from it with my Ljungman.

This part of my Ljungman however did break down: the safety switch, to be exactly: a tiny part of the "hooked" bottom broke off.

On the left the damaged one, on the right a good one:

I've seen complete switches for sale but also just the part with the hook at the bottom: I disassembled the safety switch at first to see what's the best option/best way to replace, so just a little warning: reassembling the safety switch is an "interesting" thing :mrgreen:
Since it ain't simple to just buy the hooked part on this side of the ocean, I bought two complete spare safety switches.
