Military Rolling block pickup

Post by tokashikibob » Sat Jan 12, 2019 7:43 pm

Gents picked up a couple rolling blocks a few weeks back at a country auction. One was a early Danish Remington while the other is this one.
I don't see any factory markings from any company on this, it is robust, matching numbers and has some military rack stampings. Also, H 1874 on the receiver. Any clue on what I bought?
Best regards,
Bob

Hi There,

Your RB appears to be one of the Swedish or Norwegian
rolling blocks. Are there any markings on the right-hand
side of the receiver (like a letter with a crown over it)?

I see in the interval between typing this post and posting it,
you provided a picture of the right-hand side. The letter on
the right-hand side designates the manufacturer. I believe the
"H" is for Husqvavarna and the date of manufacture.

This is a Swedish rolling block originally a 12.17 x 44 RF but
most of these were converted to center fire later on.

Good Luck!

I have a couple of these and would be interested in seeing
what yours looks like. Would you post some pics of it please?
You can start a new thread for them.

Thanks!
