The original posting was in the military sister board, but since it was found out to be a civilian rifle, I feel it is warranted to repost the thread here. The pictures (appended at the end) may be of interest, since the gun is somewhat rare. Carcano

Looks like an interesting conversion from muzzle-loader to rear-stuffer, a little bit a la Kammarladdningsgevär.
You seem to be mis-reading the name, though - must be Waneqvist or something on those lines.

At a moment I am looking a book named Swedish weaponry since 1630.
It looks like model 1864 to me.

Yes, that would be a civilian version of Hagström's m/1864.
Several smiths made these rifles on order for FSR clubs or individuals. These rifles are marked with the makers name, and lack all military markings. I think Wahlqvist would be the correct name in this particular case.
Nice find.

thanks a lot for the responses.
Yes, the rifles have no military markings like my other Kammerladungsgewehr.
I'll take these weekend a closer look to the name of the maker.

Hi Pettson,
You are right with the makers-name.
