    It looks like it's converted to hunting rifle. A nice piece though!
    I would be happy to have it. Thanks for showing.

    Regards

    Hello-this appears to be a Danish Krag mechanism in a Norwegian stock-Danish stocks are straight wristed while Norwegian stocks have a 'pistol grip'-the mechanism is marked 'M 89' for model 1889- again a Danish marking-it looks to have been 'sporterised' as a hunting rifle with a fixed rear sight after being sold off from army use.

    these rifles are sportorised/hunting rifle a lot because of their accuracy it is still a very nice rifle and it may be possible to restore it back to original condition

    The saying in gun magazines goes "There is NOTHING as smooth as a Krag" rifle action. Since it has already been sporterized, probably in the 50s or 60s, just clean her up & enjoy....
