it isn't really. incredibly loud and if you are not careful the scope can give you a black eye due to the kickback of the "recoil-less" rifle.

It still is - they had to find the right frame to make that effect after all.

Sweden is NOT neutral. They were during the world wars but they aren't anymore. I know because i've been in the swedish army where we talked a LOT about what the swedish army does and what it stands for. Dont believe me? Google it.

You call Canada "Dang Peacefull" and yet the Carl Gustav rifle is Desinged and manufactured in a country that has'nt been in a conflict in the last 200 years, Sweden.
the rifle is named after the swedish king Carl Gustaf
