"The Callup"/"Repmånad" (1979).

The Callup, (Swedish: "Repmånad"), is a 1979 Swedish comedy. It follows a squad of former soldiers during their obligatory one-month military refresher course (known as "Repmånad").

The following firearms were seen in the film "The Callup"/"Repmånad".

Husqvarna Pistol m/40 (Lahti 35 version)

The overzealous 1st Lieutenant Wickman (Thomas Ungewitter) is seen carrying a holstered sidearm, though he never reveals or uses it. In the Swedish Armed Forces at the time the movie was filmed (1979), there were two official semi-automatic pistols in service: The older M/07 (FN Browning 1903) and the M/40 model (Lahti L-35). Wickman carries his sidearm in a holster on his left hip which most likely means it is a M/40 as the older M/07 pistol were usually carried on the right hip for practical reasons.

Carl Gustav M/45B

The primary weapon of the characters is the Swedish Carl Gustav M/45B SMG. Most of the time, it's seen with a special blank-firing device and a brass-catcher.

Heckler & Koch G3A3/Ak 4

Though the main characters use the older M45 SMG, some of the extras use the Ak 4, a Heckler & Koch G3A3 modified for the needs of the Swedish Military.

Kulspruta M/1936

The Kulspruta M/1936, (literary translated as "Bulletsprayer M/1936", though internationally known as "Machine gun M/1936"), the Swedish version of the Browning M1917, is seen during a training exercise. This particular MG was partially replaced by the "KSP 58" (Swedish FN MAG designation), in the 60s. The last Swedish M/1936 were replaced in the late 80s, early 90s by the FN MAG/KSP 58.
