Greetings to all the fine blackpower shooters and collectors.
I was very lucky a few years ago to find my first Kassepipe. And now, I have found another! Perhaps you kind gentleman can comment on? Of course it is no longer in original condition. But except for a very poor restocking job with a US 1903 stock and lots of plastic wood it seems to be with a Norwegian Grindreng lock, so I think I am lucky

"Grindereng/Grindreng" is mentioned on page 55 of this book: "Norwegian gunsmiths from 1575 - 1900".
(this online book might not be accessible from foreign IP-addresses...)
I also did a search for "P Aarnes", but could find no match in the above mentioned book...

Sålenge det er bly i lufta, er det fortsatt håp......

Nice  :)
I bought this Grindreng barrel from the USA a couple years ago. Looks like it is the same smith as the one who made the lock on your.
