Model 1867 Rolling Block rifle in Mil Config {12.7X44R centerfire}.
These antique rifles are coming from dealers in Sweden who purchased them from private owners. Most are ex-military arms. After being in private hands for years, many have been slightly altered or tweaked according to the former owners preferences, to make repairs due to worn parts, or to be made more accurate for shooting tournaments. I cannot guarantee they are in 100% original military configuration. Barrels may of been changed, sights worked on, non-serial numbered parts used to replace worn military ones to keep the guns safe to shoot, etc. I do my best to note any changes in my descriptions, but some cannot be easily detected. Please keep this in mind when purchasing a Swedish Rolling Block rifle.
