    Egyptian Hakim...

    Anyone have any experience with these? I've become interested in them and am seriously thinking about trying to hunt one down? What are your thoughts on the rifle? What are its strengths and weaknesses?

    Conceptually I like them a lot. A Ljungman but in 8x57.
    Never fired one, just seen one in a collection when I was picking up my P14 a few months back.
    They seem to be good rifles and, if I weren't that allergic to semiauto (with the exception of a StG58 which I'll pick up in a couple weeks), I'd buy it.

    Like Ovidio says, it's an AG42B in 8mm Mauser. $49 for a repro mag at Liberty Tree.
    Not many around in decent condition any more. This one, in Alaska, at $899(ends in 45 minutes) and the other, in a Georgia Pawn shop, at $799, are the only 2 on Gunbroker.

    Egyptian Hakim 8mm, Free shipping with - Semi Auto Rifles at GunBroker.com : 844733602
    The rifle is a contemporary of the M1icon Rifle and if you don't pay attention will bite you the same way an M1 is rumoured to do. M1 Thumb is operator failure. The Hakim is just mean. Friggin' thing's action closes faster than an Egyptian cobra.

    I completely understand... Outside of my one Garandicon that I don't shoot much, all my milsurp rifles are bolt action. There's just something about them. That said, there's something about Hakim and the Ljungman that appeal to me.

    I have one and have fired it. It's a great rifle to shoot. Heavy so not much recoil. It has one other big difference other than the caliber from the Swedishicon original. It has an adjustable gas system so you can set it for different types of ammunition. This is great because you can fire the hot stuff in it unlike most other semi-autos. You just have to adjust the gas based on how far it ejects. I paid $450 for it quite a few years ago rather spur of the moment off a guy that put an ad in the state firearms classifieds. Met him locally so didn't have too go far. Came with the bayonet which are going for $100 these days, probably $50 then.



    Mine is in great condition but I have seen others that aren't. The desert isn't kind to rifles other than keeping them from rusting.
