I am looking for information on a rifle that I own. I have a Norrahammar N900 - cal .243 bolt action in excellent shape. No one can tell me anything about it. I want to know what it is worth, and any other info that anyone can provide, please. I am not interested in selling it.

This model was made for the US market, 1957-'59 on a 1640 action (improved HVA Mauser) w/ 20.5 in. barrel.
For value, my guess is that it will be running in the same range as the other HVA, but I might be wrong since I never saw this model on our side of the line.

Can you be a little more specific. I am new to this forum and I am not familiar with the other gun you mention. You can safely assume that I know nothing. Thank you.

The Norrahammer N900 was a special model to sell at a lower price point than the rest of the Husqvarna line. Some shortcuts were taken in the finishing of the rifle to make it cheaper. I don't believe the Husqvarna name appears on the rifle. Norrahammar was the name of the cast iron foundry owned by Husqvarna. The rifle was made for 3 years from 1957 thr 1959 and only 755 guns were made. They also had their own serial number range from 500,001 thru 500,755.
The Norrahammar rifle is basically the same as the US model 4100 Lightweight, but with a different stock and not as well finished. Mechanically, they are just as high quality as any other Husqvarna. It is based on the 1640 action (use the search function to find more info). As to the value of the gun, it really depends on the market and unfortunately not many people know about these guns. I don't recall having seen them in any price guides.
There's some good information on Norrahammer rifles here. Last post was 2008. I have three of them in my collection, one I've been using for 45 years. Still a fine shooter and nice quality gun. (modernized Mauser action )
The value of these rifles (when you can find one) is way below the quality your getting. The rarity alone of a 755 rifle manufacturing run makes it a prize just to find. Add the fact it came in three different calibers. Small runs indeed. Not hand made, but rare and prized by owners.
In my opinion if you can find one of these for under $2000.00 in nice shape . Buy it, turn around, and quietly walk away. You are now one of the one in a million gun owners that have this rifle.

Owned one in 270.cal 96% condition blue wood combined.
put Lyman peep sights on it...
Was least plain looking of all my Swede's...not my cal.
Sold its maybe 10 years ago...$775
Never shot it.
Saw owner whom also sold it, shot it....he wishes he hadn't sold it..not i!
..rare doesn't always mean higher prices....
if condition and esthetic aren't as attractive as other huskys in better condition or in same price range side by side on same table....
$2000 would not be reached by most swede collectors here and Wva ......
more in the $650 plus at 98% over all condition!
Box, papers, excellent Wood grain or peeps, scope.... effects/ affects on "personal value". will drive the cost up.
Welcome to the boards ..my friend.
..three is an amazing accomplishment in one collection.....
Could you post photos side by side?
What other huskys Gustafs do you have.
