Swedish Lahti 9mm Pistol Model 40, 4.75" Barrel - Manufactured by Husqvarna Vapenfabriks -  The Husqvarna M40 is a Swedish made copy of the Finnish Lahti L-35 pistol. It is a a semi-automatic pistol chambered in 9mm Parabellum / Luger. It was designed for the Finnish Armed Forces by the famous Finnish weapons designer Aimo Lahti. The Lahti L-35 was produced between 1935 and 1952 in Finland while the Model 40 Swedish variation was licensed to Sweden in 1940. The first m/40s were delivered to the Swedish military by 1942 with slight differences from the Finnish L-35 Lahtis. The grips of the m/40 have the Husqvarna "crown H" motif engraved and the front sight was slightly larger. The barrel is also slightly longer on the m/40 than the Finnish Lahti with the m/40's trigger guard being heavier, and the pistol does not have the loaded chamber indicator and lock-retaining spring of the Finnish Lahti. These are a very rare find and are considered an absolute collectors dream
