Remington Rolling Block, Model 1867, 12.17x44R

The Model 1867 Remington rolling block rifle was the first rifle using metallic cartridges to be adopted by the Swedish and Norwegian armies. It had a caliber of 12.17 mm, and it fired a rimfire cartridge with a lead bullet. With the exception of the first 10,000 rifles which were made by Remington in the US, all Model 1867 Remington rolling block rifles and carbines were made under license in Sweden and Norway. The rolling block is known for it's simple design which made it rugged and reliable.

This particular specimen is a Swedish contract rifle made by Husqvarna of Sweden. It is an 1867 model, manufactured in 1871. I purchased it in 1999 from IAR of San Juan Capistrano, California, and I have never fired it. These original rolling block rifles were advertised as "very rare" when sold in 1999. The original sales ad and my original receipt will be included in the shipment. If you have trouble finding 12.17 mm cartridges, a good gunsmith can convert it to 50-70 or 50-90 for a more common cartridge.


• The barrel seems to be blued with an even patina, and the receiver seems to be in-the-white with splotchy patina. There is no rust or pitting.

• The wood is in good condition with no major flaws, but numerous small dings as expected for a 140-year-old rifle. The color is a light brown mottled with dark stain, giving it kind of a tiger stripe look.

• The bore is clean and shiny with very crisp rifling.

• Sights: V-notch and front post. The V-notch rear sight with the ladder laying down flat has steps for "120", "180", "240" and "300" meters. To shoot at greater distances, you flip-up the ladder V-notch sight, which is marked with "4", "5", "6" and "7".

• Round barrel, three barrel bands.

• A bayonet lug is located on the front right side of the barrel.

• The cleaning rod is missing from the channel in the forestock under the barrel.

• There are dozens of small indentations on the front left side of the barrel where something has repeatedly dinged the metal there, as if it was hit by a shotgun blast with bird shot. See the photos for detail.

• Sling swivels are located under the second barrel band, and the front of the trigger guard. No sling is included.

• There is a brass disc on the butt stock which is blank.

• llustrated take-down instructions included.


• Caliber: 12.7 x 44R, Swedish, black powder

• Barrel length: 37.5 inches

• Overall length: 53 inches

• Weight: 9.6 lbs.

• Magazine capacity: Single shot

• Rate of fire: 13 rounds per minute

• Serial number "4937" is stamped in the left receiver, left barrel, left forestock, left buttstock, butt plate, trigger guard, and all three barrel bands - it is "all matching".

• "1871" date of manufacture is stamped on the right receiver and right forestock.

• "H" for Husqvarna is stamped on the right receiver, and the top rear of the barrel.
