Husqvarna Sporting Rolling Block Rifles


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


New to this forum, so thought I would post pics of my particular madness - which is fullstocked Husqvarna rolling block sporting rifles. The top is a Model 27 in 500-450 No.1 BPE, the Middle is a No. 1 in 12.7x44R and the bottom is a Model 33 in 8x58R Sauer. The top and bottom ones are new in my collection and am awaiting dies and brass. The middle one I have shot regularly at 50 yds and with 65 gr FFG behind a 450 gr RN. With the express sights it shoots well enough to hunt with confidence. The Model 27 has a 36 inch long barrel that is 1.15 inches in diameter. A heavy sucker. Has anyone here had experience shooting the 500-450 BPE? The 8x58R Sauer is very similar to 32-40, so I will start there and work out for load development.

Welcome.

I had never heard of those rifles. They sure appear to be expertly crafted from what I can tell in the pictures. When were they made?

The rifles were made in Sweden by Husqvarna. They were built between the 1870s and about 1912. The Swedes took Remington's idea and ran with it, producing a dizzying variety of rifles and shotguns. If you are interested, I can post some good links.

I wouldn't mind having a half stock model in a modern cartridge like 30-30 or 30-40 Krag.

Can they take that much pressure?

Pedersoli makes a modern rolling block in both 30-30 and 30-40 Krag. Also, if you get one of the original actions for the Model 1897 or Model 1902, they were made for smokeless powder. Those, of course, were not as hot as modern loads.

Have a 1902 Military chambered for the 7 X 57 Mauser cartridge. It uses the cicular extractor for rimless cartridges. You wouldn't know of a source for the extractors would You?

Hi Lee:

I see these from time to time on ebay. Lone Star Rifle Company also can make most rolling block parts. That is where I would start. Ebat might be best bet. Just search "rolling block" exact phrase under all categories.

Thanks Michael, I'll give him a try. E-Bay was a bust, and Lone Star was pretty high. Would prefer an original part if available.

Gun Parts Corp (Numrich) used to sell newly manufactured replacements for the sliding bar and rotary extractors. Not sure if they still do. If you absolutely had to, a rotary extractor would not be that hard to make if you had/had access to a good dremel and welder to build up the extractor hook. Do you have the old one for a pattern? Good luck!

I'v made some of the rotary ones for the rimmed cartridges, but the rotary ones for the rimless ones are diffrent, and I need at least a pattern. I may have to design my own if I can.t find one.
