M67F1 Sharpshooter rifle.
First time produced at Kongsberg arms factory in 1967. Build on the M98 Mauser mechanism with a standard safety. In short, it is a developed M59 sharpshooter rifle. It was delivered with a stock of laminated beech. A new model of the stock came later, in 1989, also in laminated beech, but now with adjustable height on the buttstock. The new stock was not
approved for shooting competition arranged by DFS until 1 of
January 1990. You could get it both with a Busk diopter sight or
without sight. These rifles were used by many in the DFS
competitions until the Sauer 200 STR rifle came in 1990. Shortly
after the Sauer 200 came on the market virtually no one used the
old Kongsberg M67 in competitions. Since the Sauer came, all the
winners of the national championship have used that rifle. The army
had some tests with the M67 at the end of the seventies since they
wanted a new sharpshooter rifle. The tests were done by SVI and the result was in favor of the M67. The conclusion was that if the army replaced the scoped AG3 with a scoped M67 the accuracy would be more than doubled. Despite this, the army never approved the M67 from Kongsberg. This particularly rifle was used as a gift within the army in 1971.
