VIP-visitors to the museum!

Friday the 5th of May the museum could welcome a very special visitor. Former arms assembler Nils “Nisse” Abrahamsson came with his son Hans as company. Nils is at 97 (!) and having worked for 51 years (!) the now last living small arms artisan, a tradition that goes back approx. 600 fantastic years!

Nils and Hans was naturally most interested in our arms collection and so went to the Small Arms Room. Inside they took great interest in many of the rifles and shotguns and Nils remembered vividly how exacting the application of gold details to the 1989 Husqvarna Jubilee shotgun – a hammerless side-by-side piece – were.
