No, not Jarmann, but made by Kongsberg.

I think it is either czech or austrian. Most likely rebarreled after the war.

It is close, but not the same receiver.

It looks to be made from a Mannlicher 43m.
This is the first I have heard of Kongsberg converting them.

I don't think there is any doubt that this is built on a Mannlicher 43M.

That is not overly surprising as Kongsberg also used the earlier 1895 Mannlicher as a donor. That is well documented. Back in the day I suspect they used whatever they could make work, and there are several similarities between the two Mannlicher rifles.

I know we have several very knowledgeable members of KVF on this forum and would not be surprised if someone has first hand knowledge.

Anyways, the rifle for sale is NOT a Jarmann. :-) I'd love to see it back in Norway, though...

This is a Kongsberg Harpungevær M/48, Kongsberg Fangstgevær M/48, Kongsberg Redningsgevær M/48, Kongsberg Redningsgevær M/48 Revidert.

It is so rare that they do not have a picture of it on the KVF. It's the first time I've seen one.
Here is a link: http://www.kvf.no/vaapen.php?type=Fangst&weaponid=FANG0002

Its made of a scrubbed Mannlicher G98/40 the Germans left here in 45.

Here is a link to the rigt box for it ,but with a M/28 gun in it.

Here is a link to a M/48 made on a Mannlicher M/1895.

They were weaker than the M/52 guns made on the K98k rifles, so not many of them were made.
The extractors is a weak point of G98/40 to so a heavy harpoon does not help the reliability.

You can se the serial 88 on the bolt , probably the serial number for the rifle.

If you are in the US. And collect Norwegian weapons so buy, you probably won't get the chance again.
It is annoying that the seller does not ship internationally.
