SOLD SOLD SOLD 1936 Husqvarna 22 LR Octagon 24 Inch Barrel Bolt Action Single Shot Nice Condition
Overall nice condition is offered this Husqvarna bolt action single shot rifle; all metal and wood. No plastic. Chambered in .22 LR with a 24-inch octagon barrel measured from muzzle to closed bolt with nice bluing. Any streaks are from my handling the firearm; not discoloration. Some patina in chamber area. Clean bore with very distinct rifling. Original iron sights. 41.5 inches overall. No cracks in the wood, few very minor dings from normal use. Believe the wood is walnut; possibly stained birch. This is from 1936; however, confirm with your research on data in the next paragraph. No serial number on barrel. There is some faint etching in a very small font size that looks to read SIMPSONLTDGBURGI on left side of barrel starting at forestock area. May be the original owner identification; otherwise no clue as to the meaning. It is hard to see unless you look for it.
Top of barrel forward of rear sight is distinctly marked with a stylized Swedish Crown that is hard to see clearly unless in person. Link: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Husqvarna_Vapenfabrik Marked on the left side of barrel below the rear sight is R LOUII 3 then HUSQVARNA. Also marked 12544 at base of the bolt handle. Given that 12544 is the Serial Number; link is at (NON-SECURE) rex.gl/serials (NON-SECURE) indicates this is from 1936. If you have ANY DOUBT please do your own due diligence to verify. Other than the bolt number I did not see any other numbers that would reflect a serial number.
I will let you decide the model for this rifle as I could not be certain. Never worried about it myself. As previously stated, good rifling with prominent lands and grooves. Caliber .22 LR with weight of only 4 pounds 8 ounces. Spring, trigger and safety work perfectly. Bolt seats firmly with no unwanted slack or movement. Butt pad is the original metal. No muzzle erosion per image. Rifle is nice and tight all around. The last image shows some pitting on bolt end that is stable; none since I have owned this rifle. The image does exaggerate it a bit; however, you need to know some is present. Please review all images. Questions answered normally same day; always within 24 hours.
I dry fire and work all firearms at least four or five times as well as other functions before I list any of my firearms. For this particular 22 the toggle safety on the left side has to have the rear pad depressed to ensure the bolt comes out smoothly as you hold the trigger back at the same time. You can remove it just holding the trigger back; however, harder to remove and not recommended as it puts undue tension on the internals. Reinstalling is the same; hold the rear pad and trigger back and it goes in smoothly. Then you will have to run the bolt again to set the trigger and allow it to fire. Each time it is ready to fire the shooter has to depress the rear pad of the safety to allow it to fire. This is a nice safety feature. After putting in the 22 ammo the bolt has to be pushed forward with a little effort as the spring retains very good tension. The effort is minimal for the younger shooter; just have to make a conscious effort to push the bolt forward and lock in place before pulling the trigger. After firing it automatically reverts to SAFE. With the light weight, long bore for accuracy and single shot, would make a safe first rifle for the young marksman. Alternatively, a nice addition to your collection.
This has not been fired for several years; sitting in my safe. I did dry fire and inspect for this listing.
Effective January 1, 2021 some states require that Gun Broker (and other for profit websites) collect Sales Tax. Reference: https://support.gunbroker.com/hc/en-us/articles/1260800233069
I do not collect sales taxes if sold from this website as I am not "for profit"; only selling the very few 22 rifles I have left. States just squeezing more money from Americans; sounds like socialism to me. Oh well.
If you live under a "government"; or it is your FFL policy, that requires FFL to FFL transfer I will not normally be able be able to accommodate that. The logistics of extra driving, my FFL's fees and added packing charges (remember I do not charge for packing and boxing) can add $50 to $100 per firearm. However, I will consider this on a case by case basis BEFORE a bid. So, if you have this FFL to FFL issue; contact me first. Thank you.
Shipping is UPS Ground at actual cost. Go to the UPS website and at bottom you can get a shipping quote from my ZIP of 29412 in Charleston SC to your FFL ZIP Code. Packed in a maximum 9-pound box measuring a maximum of 44 by 9 by 4 inches. I wrap the firearm with thick bubble wrap and / or clean Kraft type paper (not old newspaper) and taped to hold in place. After placed in the box; voids are filled with clean paper and bubble wrap as needed. Ends secured with strapping tape and Top Of Load and Do Not Lay Flat stickers on both sides. I will ship USPS Priority if requested.
I am a private seller and am not a FFL. Potential buyers must check with their FFL before a bid to ensure acceptance. I am not able to keep current and know the laws of each state, city or locality. As of May 18, 2020; I will NO LONGER divert or reship any shipment at my cost unless I make an error in shipping. If diversion, reshipment or return costs are incurred or necessary; buyer must send me funds up front to cover all added costs and Hold Me Harmless. If not done I will have to let you or your receiver refuse or accept the shipment; if buyer fails to understand the listing terms.
In May 2020 I had a buyer agree to pay for re-routing, return and other costs as his FFL could not accept the firearm from an individual. This was revealed AFTER I had shipped the firearm. The buyer then defrauded me; after agreeing for 13 days to pay the added costs, out of $102.37 in added costs when he "changed his mind". I did not charge for my time and effort or miscellaneous costs to ship. Sorry to be so blunt; however, I will not deal with this again.
I do not normally ship to certain states and cities such as CA, NY, Chicago, Washington, DC and any leftist leaning governmental entity.
With the virus issues impacting our great country; there may be delays in shipping time or other delivery issues. If you are not willing to accept the possibility of delays or other delivery issues and hold me harmless, you should not bid. Questions on shipping should be directed to UPS (or USPS if used) as once I drop off your purchase, I have no control. Thank you.
Hopefully I have covered everything. Sold AS IS. There is No Return and No Refund. However, please inspect on receipt and if damaged or not as listed, contact me within 24 hours. If damaged on receipt (keep shipping box) or if I missed something significant, I will resolve it at my cost. Request you ask any questions before you bid. Thank you for looking. My dog rescues say WOOF!
