Famous Danish company Dansk Industrie Sindikat (DISA) "Madsen" developed a modern prototype automatic rifle in late 1950s. Apparently, early models were made in caliber 7.62x39 M43 Soviet, to participate in Finnish army trials for new assault rifle. Later on, circa 1959, same weapon was reworked to fire larger and much more powerful 7.62x51 NATO ammunition, and in this form it was offered for any interested buyer as Madsen Light Automatic Rifle, LAR M/62. Apparently, this weapon failed to attract any serious buyers, and it soon went into oblivion.

Madsen light automatic rifle LAR M/62 is a gas operated, selective fire weapon which fired from closed bolt. It uses rotary bolt locking and a long stroke piston gas system, with manual gas regulator. Receiver of the gun is made from aluminum alloy, with separate trigger unit / pistol grip attached below. Manual safety / selector switch is located on the left side of pistol grip. Rifle is fitted either with fixed wooden butt or with side-folding tubular metallic butt.
