    Default Swedish Defense Forces with Battle Rifles

    The Swedes are a neutral country but knew they'd side with the West if anything ever happened back in the days of the Cold War .

    They bought HK G3's, which are called AK-4's in Sweden. As much as I prefer the FAL to the G3 system, the G3 system is probably a better choice for more extreme climates like Norway and Sweden.

    The Swedes adopted the FN FNC in 5.56mm several years ago and they're called the AK-5. The Reserves still use the AK-4 in 7.62x51mm.

    A couple of years ago the AK-4's were taken in and the iron sights were removed and Aimpoints were installed in the place of the irons.

    Here are some pics.......................

    Keep in mind too that the Swedes do things a bit differently. EVERYONE was issued an AK-4. I read that on that smallarmsreview PDF article that talked about the AK-4 arsenal rebuild. Talk about a standing militia - everyone in the country has a .308 MBR sitting in their closet.

    Yeah, I know these aren't Battle rifles, they're assault rifles, but this is the AK-5, a variant of the FNC, which is what the Swedish Regular Army is now issuing.
