Hello all,

I think I own a Swedish M1845-54 made by Husqvarna and it is very difficult to find information about this rifle. The rifle is in caliber 18,3 mm and has arear sight on the breechplug and an extra sight for a longer distance around the barrel. This sight is mounted a bit more forward and is fixed with a little screw and made out of brass.
Can anyone on this forum give me information about the history of this rifle?
Original model and conversion, bullet type and weight, powder load, bayonet etc.
I am looking forward to your answers.
