    Default m/1870 Carbine Modifications

    Re: "In 1880 Carl Gustaf modified 4,178 of the m/1870 carbines. The following year the remaining 2,806 went through the same conversion process." This would appear to be a large project and executed in a short time. Is there a web citation, images, or other background information on just what was this modification was?

    As far I know was this modification only a change of the sight to another version,
    and that the barrel was blue oxidized. First version was raw (steel gray)

    The number of carbines you mention is app. the total was produced of CG and Husqvarna.

    Thank you. I'll follow up on that. I've also heard that there is two variations in the nose piece, also, but I've not had the opportunity to compare that many examples.

    The first variant of back sight, blank barrel, Remington system, otherwise made by CG with serial number # 2;

    Same variant of sight made by CG with the equal serial number # 2 as the upper presented;

    http://www.digitaltmuseum.se/things/...count=22&pos=0
    -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------x
    The second modified variant with back sight, m/1880, made by CG serial number # 2259;

    There is also different variants of nose pieces for this carbine. To be correct I can´t tell you by now how they looks.

    How much would an 1870 carbine fetch these days? Have a buddy in Sweden who had one dropped off to him by his uncle and called it a bunker buster, but we know it's not that. It appears to be a second variation made carbine, given the examples above.

    Simpsons has a two m/1870 rolling block carbines . $895/$1395 . Not so great in condition . One reblued & sanded .

    Sean's attachment works for me .

    http://www.simpsonltd.com/product_in...ducts_id=27617

    Simpsons claims the 2nd m/1870 above has the type 2 nose cap . I must be blind . I cannot see the difference .

    Maybe someone with better computer skills than me can copy , crop & paste the two side by side for comparison ????????

    I don't know how to fix it. I don't know why some of the attachments haven't been working lately.

    You have to go to edit, advanced, attachments, select images on top you want and drag em to thumbs. I love this site, but whomever is responsible for web coding is more concerned about banner active content vs actual site functionality....

    I think that worked. Not the way I would have liked it to show up, but a thumbnail that you click on is better than nothing.
