Make : Husqvarna Martini.

Calibre : .577/500" Black Powder Express.

Mechanism : Martini Tilting Block.

Description: An unusual and interesting Swedish manufactured .577/500” No2 Black Powder Express Husqvarna Martini action big game rifle with trigger guard mounted safety catch. MkII pattern Martini action with large cocking indicator to the right side and chequered thumb rest to the right rear. The rear of the trigger guard fitted with an ingenious and very effective detented sliding safety catch which engages with a stud to the rear of the trigger blade locking the trigger when engaged and preventing the rifle being cocked if the safety is set while the spring is eased, but still allowing the rifle to be unloaded from the cocked position when engaged. Barrel and action both serial numbered 20 under the forend. Well figured walnut stock chequered to the wrist with steel buy plate and key retained smooth sporting splinter pattern forend. Heavy round barrel with tapering flat to the breech is fitted with a standing rear sight with single folding leaf and windage driftable blade front. Signed to the left side HUSQVARNA the barrel is rifled with eight grooves of Henry pattern. A most unusual Martini both in its overall design and unique safety catch as well as the choice of calibre for a European made arm, the .577/500” No2 BPE being a very popular British cartridge for use on large non dangerous game and thin skinned dangerous game but not often seen on the continent. It would however have been very effective as a Moose round in Scandinavia as well as for use on African / Indian game for a hunter traveling at the time. In very good condition with very good bore and mechanics, a well figured stock and much original finish to the action and barrel. An interesting and unusual big game Martini chambered for a popular British Victorian game round by Scandinavia’s foremost gun maker of the day.
