Danish Rolling Block carbine
« on: October 31, 2015, 06:29:11 PM »
This is the last of the 4 guns I won at auction a bit ago. It was advertised as 45-70, but it is not, although 45-70 cartridges can be modified to shoot.

Although this is a Danish rifle, I am hoping Len may be able to shed more light on it. The carbine is in 11.4 X 51R or 11.7 X56R depending on who you are talking to. Evidently some underwent some chamber length modifications on going from rimfire to centerfire cartridges.

Hi Mazo,
this article might give some more info o this carbine

http://www.gotavapen.se/gota/mats/karbin_m1885.htm

At the end of the article the Danish variant is discussed.
Does the stamp say BV or FV ?

Nice catch Mazo!

Thanks for the additional info Len. The Stamp is BV, don't see any other markings. The tang stamp is very faint but I think it is the Remington stamp. I'll have to get the magnifying glass out and see if I can tell for sure. Do you think the "70" stamped on the trigger guard is the year converted?

If you find any more "70" stamps on the carbine, it would be the serial number

I will pull the butt stock off and see if there is a serial number on the lower tang. Len, do you know of a source for brass for this carbine?

Mazo, I have no idea what so ever, but I'll look into it and be back with whatever I come up with.

Mazo,

This is what I have listed in my data-base.
Comments are not mine, just what I copied & pasted to document.
Looks like it would be a fun one to play with.

Thanks for that info. I won't be shooting it a lot, but would like to put together a few rounds.
