  • Description: Serial #2236, 12.17 x 44mm CF, 36 1/2” barrel with an excellent, bright bore. This is a Stockholm-made, “(crown) / S” marked rifle that has an overall mottled, pewter gray patina, with streaks of darker plum-brown along the barrel, and even brown freckling on the frame. The rifle has all-matching numbers with the dark brown wood having a nice added military oil finish over numerous small handling marks and minor blemishes. Gotland Militia markings are present on the barrel, forend, and buttstock: “949M” (indicating issue to the Middle Battalion, rack no. 949). The original ramrod is still present, and this is a very good-fine example of a Gotland marked Rolling Block, in very good-fine condition. It would make a nice addition to any collection of late 19th century military rifles. Antique
