1885 Swedish Hagstrom 12.7mm artillery carbine. Obsolete caliber so NOT deactivated .
This rifle has an interesting history being built by an apprentice armorer in Sweden and never issued to a unit (The Remington roller block was built as a center fire rather than earlier rim fire and the markings support this as the most likely reason for no unit marks / butt number . Weapon is in good condition and will bridge the gap in any collection as an example of the transition from muzzle to breach loading weapons . Also being a rarer type it is significant as a weapon in its own right . 12.7mm short barrel carbine ! this thing will have a kick like a horse !
