    MUSEUM QUALITY, MINT BORE, VERY RARE** 1863 Kammerlader Model 1851 Swedish Navy Pivoting Breech 18 Bore Percussion Rifle. Sn 17078 - 17078

    These rifles adopted by the Swedish Navy in 1851 were produced by P. J. Malherbe in Belgium and in Sweden by Carl Gustaf Stads Gevärsfaktori. The rifles used a pivoting chamber breech design and had a percussion cap ignition system. The chamber pivots upwards from the front for reloading. The kammerlader was designed to use paper cartridges — a pre-measured amount of gunpowder and a lead bullet wrapped in paper — both to speed up and simplify loading the weapon. Our example has the correct pivoting breech which is raised by operating a steel lever on the side of the action. The chamber is then ready for loading and a percussion cap is placed on the nipple which is presented on the underside of the chamber. The lever is then used to re-seat the chamber ready for firing. The ringed hammer on the underside of the action is then cocked and the weapon is fired by depression of the separate trigger in the conventional way. The metal work and Walnut stock with figured cheek piece are in splendid condition suitable for Museum display. It has a 26 ¾” barrel with a near mint, bore, clean & bright with deep cut, 6 groove rifling and measures 49” overall. It has a brass butt plate, brass barrel bands, blade foresight & 'notched plate' rear sight. The barrel has Carl Gustaff ‘Crown C’ mark & other factory inspectors marks (illustrated). The wood, barrel bands, butt plate, breech cover, action tang, action block, breech lever & hammer guard are numbered ‘7’. Two screws are numbered ‘6’. The wood has inspection marks and is dated ‘1863’. The pivoting breech and firing mechanisms work correctly. The price for this rare piece of Firearms history includes UK delivery. NB as an antique obsolete calibre rifle no licence is required to own this item in the UK if retained as part of a collection or display. Sn 17078
