The navy adopted the patent that Jens Landmark came up with
while he was executive director at the factory in the period
1855-1880. The army adopted the Lund patent, which you can read
more about here. All of the navy archives were burnt during WW2
and that makes it hard to find credible information about the navy
kammerlader rifles. What we do know is that there were not as
many produced to the navy as to the army. As far as I know only
about 500 were ever produced of the different models of
kammerlader rifles for the navy. This makes them rather scarce,
but the prices are often not as high as one could imagine. The
reason for this is that most kammerlader collectors prefer the army
models.The rifle you see here is a rebuilt M1860 kammerlader.
Landmarks patent that is mentioned here was based on replacing
the chamber with a rather complex mechanism. See pictures....
After this reconstruction the rifle could now use the top modern metal cartridge, 12,17x44R. An original cartridge is seen next to a .22LR round in the gallery. A recently made bullet is also seen in the gallery.
