    (Breech Loading Rifle No. 1 and No. 2)

    Like so many of it's brothers, the Model 1 was launched in 1877 and chambered for the rimfire 12,7x44R cartridge - the same calibre that was used in the M/1867. The rimfire cartridge was discontinued in 1900, and No. 1 was available with centerfired cartrigde in the years 1900 - 1903.

    The barrel was of steel, with a leaf rear sight with leaves for 60, 120 and 180 meters. Stock was walnut full length, with or without cheek piece. Stock checkered on forestock and wrist. The front stock was fastened to the barrel with the typical Husqvarna key wedges. In 1902 the No. 1 was delivered with the safety hammer, preventing the lock from opening in case of a ignition cap rupture.

    No. 1 was also available with the so called Norwegian sights.

    A variant of No. 1 is called No. 1A, the only difference between the No. 1 and the No. 1A beeing that the No. 1A was delivered with both a rimfire and a centerfire breech block.

    Breech Loading Rifle No. 2 was the same rifle as the No. 1 but had a stock made of Birch. No. 2 was also avaliable with both rimfire and centerfired breech blocks, and was then named No. 2A.
