The Hakim rifle was manufactured based off tooling sold from Sweden to Egypt and is patterned after the Swedish Ag m/42 Ljungman Rifle. The Hakim features the familiar action and Direct Impingement gas system as the Swedish Ag m/42 Ljungman Rifle, but has many differences. These include being chambered in the larger 8mm Mauser and by having an adjustable gas system to accommodate the different types of ammunition found after WW2. A permanent muzzle brake was also engineered to handle the recoil of the more powerful 8mm Mauser round.
Please bear in mind this firearm was brought to service with corrosive ammunition. This rifle saw limited use or the previous owner evidently kept up with cleaning the barrel after shooting as the rifle's bore has been graded at 5/5.
