  12. The Husqvarna single shot rifle Model 45 was produced beginning in 1912 and ended in 1932. This model was called the "Älgstudsare" or Moose rifle. The bolt action system of the Model 45 is based on the 1871 Mauser system, with a flat bolt head. The octagonal barrel is 68 cm long (approx. 27 inch) and has a Good + bore. It is chambered for the .45-70 cartridge. The caliber is marked on top of the barrel "Husqvarna Vapenfabriks AB, Kal .45-70." It retains aprox. 70% plumb blue with some minor speckling. The sight is a flip sight for 2 distances; 60 m and 120 m. The front sight has a German silver inlay and is fixed with a screw on the barrel. The stock is made of walnut and has a pistol grip with checkering and is in VG condition. Since this uses the M71 action, it is "technically" a period single shot and could be used in side matches. Payment by USPS Money Order only. Asking $625 SHIPPED to a C&R or FFL.
