I'm not sure if there were differences or not, but I have a friend whose dad is trying to get rid of a 242 (flat nose) that had been imported from Sweden by a guy in the US military many years ago. I'm unclear on detail, but can call him if anyone is interested. It runs, and has passed NH state inspection. It is at the guy's house in New Hampshire and I am told has no rust. I am told he is asking $1500. I can get more info if anyone needs it. Email me at [email protected] .
