I think they were made by Frontier. It seems like several companies had these with a different name on them. I think the Jonsered was a 361.

I believe that some were badged as Pioneer P 10 & P 12.      I had a P 12 for a bunch of years and it was a great trouble free saw.  Frontier did make them.

I have the Husky 35 version. They were made in British Columbia by Trail Manufacturing which later became Quadra before being taken over by Emab. A very simple, unit a local chap was using the engine in RC aircraft. He said they had an excellent power to weight ratio and was the only one sufficiently reliable.  Mine has a chain brake so is much later than yours.

rburg is correct,they were made by Fontier,annd were sold under many names and different colors. They are actually a very simple but powerful and reliable saw,worth fixing.

As I know the story, it is RoyM that is most right regarding the full story of the production of that saw "family" - but Frontier may well have been the brand name that the Trail Manufacturing company themselves used for sales (the saws were sold under many chainsaw brand names, as well as a lot of brand names not usually associated with chainsaws).

That is correct. The first shop I worked at sold the Frontier version, we couldn't keep them on the shelf. Very successful, almost everybody had a version of it. Efco built a similar design which showed up on the west coast as a Skil and I believe Danarm.
