Status: In-Stock / Please Call to Purchase
This Chester County Armory listing is for a Carl Gustaf m/45 Swedish K SMG 9x19mm NATO transferable submachine gun built on a Wilson Arms registered receiver by John Andrewski.
Also known as the Kulsprutepistol m/45 (in Swedish) or the Carl Gustaf m/45, the colloquially titled Swedish K is known as one of the finest sub machine guns to have ever been designed. With production first started in Sweden in 1945 (hence the m/45 designation), versions of the Swedish K SMG have been used by countless countries in countless conflicts. Known the world over as one of the smoothest, most easily controlled sub machine gun designs, its own production led directly to the creation of the Smith & Wesson 76 here in the United States, as well as other designs and copies worldwide.
This particular model was created in the United States by famed gunsmith John Andrewski using a Wilson Arms “L” prefix registered receiver tube and an original Swedish Crown-marked parts kit. This model is a 1st generation version of the m/45, which allows for the standard m/45 mag well to be easily removed and the use of Suomi M31 100rd drums and 50 round coffin magazines. This is in addition to the standard 36rd trapezoidal box magazine intended for the weapon.
Overall, the condition on this weapon is excellent. Mechanically, it notes no functionality concerns, whatsoever. The bolt and internals note very limited wear from use. The Swedish bolt does note some small pitting on the exterior at the ejection port, which was most likely present at the actual time of assembly by Andrewski. The bore on this transferable sub machine gun remains bright and shiny with crisp, clean rifling. The metalwork notes no dings, dents, cracks, gouges, malformations, etc. Cosmetically, Andrewski’s green painted finish is in beautiful condition, with only minor handling marks noted in the gloss finish. The wood grips note only minor markings with no cracks or heavy scratches noted. Overall, it appears this model has seen very limited use since its assembly by Mr. Andrewski.
This fantastic Swedish K transferable sub machine gun is currently on a Form 3 for easy eForm transfer. The current NFA paperwork lists “Wilson Arms” as the manufacturer of this weapon and “Swedish K” as the model.
