My newest, a Lahti in almost mint condition.Holster,extra 2 clips cleaning rod and screwdriverloading tool.The pistol looks unfired,except for the recoil spring that has some ware.On the side under the rear sight (left side) there are #s t 17 over 86.The holster is black no markings,nada,nothing.According to one of your members the black holster means airforce,do the Swedes have an airforce? Can someone tell me where this has been for the last 55 yrs.And their are 5 crowns stamped in various places.

Your pistol is not Lahti L-35 but Husqvarna M 40, made in Sweden under licence.

As I know the first letter in marking on pistol means:

I = Infanterie = Infantry

T = Train = Logistic

A = Artillerie = Artillery

F = Flygflottilj = Air Force

K.FL. = Kungl Flottan = Navy

The first number is unit number.

The second number is weapon number.
