These disc are so interesting. I wish every firearm came with a Birth Certificate.

Nitestalker got it !.........


The brass disc.

Swedish.....................English

Torped................Bullet with boat tail (also means "torpedo")

Överslag.............."Point of impact over line of sight" (also means "estimate")

STR = Streck............Mills (1 Swedish mill = 1 meter at 1000 meters = 3,6" at 100 yds)

The largest sector is stamped with the calibre of the barrel.

The m/41 round had a much flatter trajectory than the older m/94. As most rifles were already manufactured with iron sights for the "m/94 bullet", the aiming correction in mills (how much lower you had to aim to hit the target) was inscribed on the brass disc. This is the information in the second sector. It was usually 0.5 mill.

The last sector gives information on the level of bore pitting. “1” means pitting in the groves. “2” means pitting in the groves and on the side of the lands. “3” means pitting in the whole bore (which means unserviceable). A rifle would never receive a “3”. It would instead be turned in to a work shop, where the old barrel would be exchanged for a new one.

Ok cool. According to this site no mark in the last sectior (1, 2 or 3) means 0 or perfect which is the way the one in both your and my picture indicates.

surplusaddict, I would be curious to know if the muzzle of your swede is threaded as mine is. Just wondering.

String: mine is dated 1919 and has the threaded barrel. Usually I put the small ring on it to protect the threads, as with the flash suppressor it is too long to go into its case.

"0" with regards to bore means no rust no wear. "0" in other sections is the number 10 as in 8,9,0.

Mine is dated 1907 and has a thread protector on the muzzle. It looks pretty much like the barrel and I had the gun for a while before I found out the protector would screw off and expose the threads. I don't know anything about a flash suppressor but what I have read is the threaded part is for installing a blank firing device. It seems the blanks they used had the cases plugged with wooden plugs and the blank firing device was there to shread the plug as it exited the barrel so it wouldnt be a dangerous projectile.

My bore is untouched, no mark for bore erosion and bore wear. It is an ex sniper model. Cosmo still in the chamber and a few other places. I bought it from a Swedish dealer at the show.

That could be a replacement disk. I have seen quite a few for sale. The screw looks very new and different than the ones on my swedes.
