New Husqvarna M38 #2

In addition to the "almost unissued" m38
http://www.thefiringline.com/forums/...d.php?t=331586

Also got this Husqvarna M38








Very close in condition to the first one, except the matching number for the bolt shroud and cocking piece are
EP'd. Anyone know about EP'd numbers on M38'S?

It seems like a very "unSwedish" thing to do to a rifle...

EP numbers, as unswedeish as it may be, are correct in 38s

.

I think I read that if the crown stamp is canted, like the one on
your cocking piece, that means it is a replacement part installed
at the armory. EP'd numbers on those parts is common practice.
Original parts would have had stamped numbers.

Very fine rifle BTW !
