Sweet! Aren't you glad you don't have to slug that around as your standard issue.
However, that weight will make it so much easier on the shoulder :)

I saw a few of these at the Raleigh, NC gun show and your right they are HEAVY. Nice find.

I have one that I picked up years ago for $99.00 at a gunshop in Huntsville. The sign he had over them read "only dropped in the sand once". I liked the idea it shoots 8mm ammo. One thing I found out though was not to shoot the rifle with the front suppressor off, that joker is loud. Now they are way up there in price.That was when you could buy a Blue Sky import M1 garand for $200.00 and a M1 carbine for $100.00, those were the days.

I picked one up about 5 years ago at a Sun Coast gun show for $100.00 I tryed to find another Hakim mag but they were $75.00 and it had a cut down stock so I sold it for $175.00, I guess I should have held on to it, it would have made more interest than money
in the bank.:geezer::wallbash: ( nice restoration job )

I have always liked those guns.

Remember to put the safety on if you reload it with the mag in the rifle, it's more painful then a Garand. :D
You can also use Mauser stripper clips with these, I've found the steel ones work best but have a few heavy brass ones that also work.
Here's some pics of doing this, I hope :D

Frogman, I seen one of the hakims in a pawn shop where someone had cut the stock down trying to sporterize the rifle, man that was ugly. The rifle was going for $75.00 and the pawn shop owner thought there was something wrong with the rifle. The reason he did was he said the bolt was stuck open. I bought the rifle for my brother's birthday. After I bought the rifle I closed the bolt, the pawn shop guy was amazed, lol
Coils, nice tutorial for using stripper clips.

Surprisingly the one I had never jammed with surplus ammo. It would shoot anything. If I remember right the gas valve had to be tuned to reduce the kick . Nice Pic's I wish I could

Now you'll it's little brother the Rashid to go with it. A bit harder to find, though! Sort of a cross between the Hakim and an SKS.

Looked at raheed today at the gun show, way overpriced, as was most everything.
Did see Salbo, and Eldog, and othesr. DPH was there and as always Scott hooked me up , I did get a deal from him.Saw some really nice stuff. Damn the ammo is high.

Really like both of mine.

I just bought one as well, it's a well built rifle, I like it.

Do a search on MG15 magazines, they can be used in the hakim with very little modifications, theyre cheap and 20 rounders to boot.

New to board & first post to Gunco.
I picked up a Hakim over a year ago and love 'this poor mans M-1' Mine had a bad chamber that would stick a case extremely nasty. I purchased a new bbl from a gent in Spokane Washington...test fired 40rds thru it before the extractor snapped. More parts coming in mail, and then more range time in future. At 9.6 lbs it is a hefty piece to shoulder and carry, but the lessened recoil is fabulous compared to a bolt action 8mm. Just make sure your extractor spring is stiff. Kudos to the older battle rifles of the world.

8mm mauser round rules

I know what you mean about weight, I bought a SKS and a Romanian Romak3 PSL at a militira show and let my partner carry the SKS as it had a sling and the PSL didn't (it had nothing to do with the PSL being cooler than the SKS, honest lol) and after a hour I was worn out.
Got great respect for anyone who carried anykind of larger calliber rifle like most Russian 7.62mm
Recently bought a RPD as well and that thing is crazy heavy, how anyone ran or even walked across anykind of open country is beyond me lol

LOL think of those poor soldiers that had to huff around the 1919, the gun alone weighs 40 lbs.
10-08-2008, 04:19 PM
40lbs sod that for a game of soldiers lol

Hakims are great rifles. They are basically a copy of a Swedish Ljungman(sp?) I bought one at an auction for $140 and resold it for $350 a year later. They were on the import ban list because they were considered "assault weapons". What a joke.

ShotgunNews ran a story on them years ago.I would like to have one.
