I came across this listing on ********* the other day and was a bit perplexed the gun appears to be in excellent condition for its age but it is specified as having a smooth bore. I looked around online and found no mention of such a thing other than one guy in Germany asking the exact same question. I also looked into the disk and noticed that the 2 while not superb indicated that the barrel was still quite good when the Swedes had it. I stopped by the shop to see for myself and it is definitely a smooth bore rifle, kinda an oxymoron.

It is a beautiful piece and hopefully someone hear can shed some light on it. Made by Carl Gustaf in 1920

Where do you see it says it is smoothbore?

I see "the barrel is not threaded", but "threaded" and "rifled" are two different things.

The only mention of the bore, at all, is "The bore is excellent and the rifle shoots incredibly well as do most of these arms".

The "threaded", as I understand it, is for attachment of a blank firing device.
