Remington Arms Danish Rolling Block M-1867  Guns > Rifles > Remington Rifles - Pre-1899
Description: This description fits this rifle. Bayonet included and in good shape. Serial # is 43885. As stated below it has the Kjobenhavns engraved and also the crown.

I borrowed this info from another site on gun collections: About 30,000 of these rolling block rifles were made at the Danish Arsenal at Copenhagen 1870- 1908, under license from Remington. Usual markings are Kjobenhavns toihuus and date on the tang, with a crown and M-1867 on left side of receiver and a serial number on the barrel and stock. These were made for an 11.7 x 41.5mmR rimfire blackpowder cartridge. If the barrel is marked at top rear with a crown that indicates conversion in 1896 to an improved 11.5 x 51R center fire smokeless powder centerfire cartridge, earning a Model 1867/96 designation. An interesting feature is that the breechblock retains a hole to allow firing pin installation for use with the earlier blackpowder rimfire cartridges. The Danish round is slightly shorter than the .45-70 cartridge, and a bit fatter near the head. While we do not recommend shooting these, some people reportedly fire light loads using trimmed .45-70 cases and only neck size them afterwards. In my opinion it is unsafe and foolish, albeit possibly a Darwin Award winning idea, to shoot .45- 70 ammunition in these. However, given the scarcity of any of the ammo in the Danish caliber, that is pretty much your only option if you want to shoot one. Eye protection is an absolute must if you insist on trying this.
