Swedish M1860 Wredes gevär converted to Remington RB

In 1860 the Swedish army started production of what was to be their last muzzle loaded rifle - the Wrede's gevär in 12,17 mm. The rifle was not good in action as it easily clogged down and was taken out of service in about 1866. Many were dismantled and the barrels used as barrels for the then new M1867 Swedish Remingtons.

But some Wredes rifles were made in to new Remingtons, where the stock was cut to fit in the Remington mechanism and the old barrel was mounted with the old bands etc.


This is a Norwegian Naval Remington, but looks a lot like the Swedish Wredes Remington.

These locks are fairly different from the conventional as they are rounded upwards in bottom front to meet the woodwork that was a lot lower than on the ordinary M1867 Swedish Remington. It looks something like this: Remington mechanism for Wredes gevär

I am trying to find a picture of the whole rifle, can anybody help me?

Well, these are Swedish rifles, but not the version I am looking for.
