These rifles were designed and manfactured in Denmark mostly for sale to 3rd world countries that couldn't aford the new fangled semi-autos and autos. They wasn't much in demand because of the glut of surplus firearms on the marked after WWII. In 1958 the Columbian Navy order some of them in 30-06 calibar but never really issued them and only about 5 to 6 thousand was delivered and they are put in storage. A lot of people say that they were 'the last military bolt action rifle'. Some can be found with a bayonet with the guns serial number on it too. Mine bayonet is completely unmarked. Some of the rifle can be found with the Columbian crest on a disk inletted into the left side of the buttstock. My rifle appears to be in unfired condition.
