Click on images for enlarged versions.

serial #19502, 8x58 Danish, 33" barrel with an about very good bore which shows some scattered frosting and a few pits but strong rifling. The barrel and bands are mostly a dull gray patina with the rear of the barrel retaining a strong amount of arsenal blue and a few scattered specks of oxidation staining. The action is a light gray patina with scattered oxidation staining. The hardwood stock rates very good with an armory added oil finish, a tiny crack behind the right side of frame, some scarring from band removal, the expected dings and handling marks from the years. The action and buttstock are both dated 1872, all visible serialized parts are matching and the rear of the barrel is marked "8099/32". There is a brass disc on the right side of butt that has a unit marking that reads "23R./2.K/No.55." and the action appears to function well. A very good example of these updated Swedish Rolling Block rifles. (208877-20) {ANTIQUE} (400/600) SOLD FOR $632.50
