    Note: After you click on images to ENLARGE them, you may find they automatically size smaller in your browser's window making them harder to view. The auto sizing is your browser's way of keeping images entirely within the screen size you have set. Move your mouse pointer to the bottom centre of the pic and you will see an options panel appear. There will be a small square box next to the large X, which will have a pointer arrow sticking out of it. If it's illuminated, it means the pic you're viewing can be enlarged, so click on this box and the pic will EXPAND and open to its normal size.

    Note: Original PDF file of complete manual provided courtesy of MILSURPS.COM member Dutchman (click here). One of the best sites on the Internet to find out more about Swedishicon arms is Dutchman's House of Karlina - Swedish Rifles Web Site (click here). We'd encourage anyone with an interest in Swedish milsurps, accessories and general militaria to visit his site and say hello.

    Private's Manual (1918)

    This manual was scanned at 300 dpi and saved in uncompressed .tff format before conversion to PDF file format, so the pages are as clear as possible and blow up (zoom larger) very well. Really interesting reading of a soldier's personal instructional manual, covering everything from the M1903 rifle itself, to the kit, pack and equipment carried and used by the United States infantry soldier of the time.
