Husqvarna recall[edit]

Weren't the Husqvarnas recalled and replaced by Browning m/07 pistols as an emergency measure before the Glock was adopted? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 82.181.101.118 (talkcontribs)

Article factual accuracy[edit]

Also the cracking was in the receiver (barrel extension), adjacent to the accelerator, not in the bolt.

I think that a small 50th anniversary batch of pistols was produced in Finland

The other weakness that I have heard of but not seen is for the bolt stop/ recoil spring mount to shear off the frame allowing the bolt to come free out of the back of the receiver.

The use of an accelerator is unusual but not unique in semi auto pistols, designs with a browning type slide don't need an accelerator as the slide comprises most of the recoiling mass, pistols with the slide attached to the barrel like the lahti, vary, some use unlocking with considerable pressure in the breech to achieve reliable operation, e.g. mauser 96, the lahti assumes no remaining gas pressure. Peter kekkenon (see gunwriters.fi)suggested that it was the cool burning powder giving a slower fall in breech pressure rather than higher peak pressure which was the problem with SMG ammunition in the lahti.

an old guns review article showed a photo of a round receivered prototype which was later used in the winter war. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 194.106.142.221 (talkcontribs)

Similarity to Luger design[edit]

This pistol bares a striking resemblance to the German Luger P08 pistol. Is there any connection between the two? 68.35.112.217 (talk) 06:50, 18 March 2009 (UTC)

No there is not. Aimo Lahti liked the Luger's ergonomics so he mirrored them. It would also help a man issued the Luger in the Finnish army to switch over to the Lahti because it used the same familiar Luger features. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 74.51.57.78 (talk) 19:15, 24 March 2013 (UTC)
