Footnotes

  • Note: As part of a union with Denmark until 1814, the Norwegian government 'inherited' a number of obsolete weapons from the Danes. During the 19th century a number of improvements were utilized, including a Swedish form of doglock percussion conversion, rifled barrels and eventually installation of a pillar breech-loading system in 1851.
    Thanks to the website 'Norwegian Military Small Arms & Blades' for this information.
