The Swedes first planned to replace the Model 1907 with the Walther HP, which they called the Pistole 39, but manufacture of the P.38 for the German army took precedence with Walther and they could't fill the Swedish orders. So Sweden adopted a slightly modified version of the Finnish Lahti and had it also made by Husqvarna.
