Description

Seller's Description:
Here is a very unusual and quite rare period carbine Jager rifle from Norway. I've owned this rifle for many years and just recently discovered its true identity,for which I owe much thanks to a kind member on another gun board for helping me with the ID. This rifle originated in an upstate NY estate and has never been for sale before at any time. As you can see in the photos, this rifle is in 100% original, untouched condition. You would be very hard pressed to find one that grades higher. It is complete and missing nothing. It is mechanically sound and in my opinion quite shootable. I believe it is about a 69 cal. There is the #1873 stamped in four or five places on this gun and the barrel measures about 28 3/4" long.From information I found online, it appears that these are quite rare, especially here in the US. "The first gun produced at Kongsberg Våpenfabrikk was a jäger rifle, very much like the Danish produced M1803 and fitted for the M1801 hirschfänger bayonet. This rifle is extremely scarce in flintlock and there probably only exist a total of two original flintlock guns. One interesting thing about the flintlock version – the flash-pan is moulded in brass. The percussion version is also fairly scarce, there were only produced a total of some 300 of the rifle. All Norwegian jäger rifles in fairly good condition were converted to percussion in 1841 and in 1851 they were converted to pillar breech rifles in order to enable faster loading and use of pointed bullets. They were also fitted with a new rear sight, a new bayonet and a new ramrod." I'm sure the collecting community knows much more about this rifle than I do. I'm happy to be able to offer it here for sale. I'm sure it will go to a very appreciative new owner. Please ask any questions you have and I'll be happy to respond. Again, this is a beautiful, original rifle that you are going to love in your collection! Good Luck!
