Jarmann 3 band single shot rifle (Black Powder Cartridge)

Hi Bernt,
The links are great, but while the stock on mine is similar to the Jarmann 1881, #1436, the action is more like the 1877, #1315, except the cocking piece seems to be narrower.
It would appear the 1881 has a shortened stock compared to the 1877. See the position of the rear sling swivel and length of the comb, possibly due to the change of the different style of butt plate.
My contact at the Museum, who is most generous in his response to my enquiries, is away at present, but has promised to check with the examples they hold.
I do hope we will eventually get to a reasonably confident answer to this puzzle.
How it came to be in Australia is unlikely to be determined. Thanks again, Staffy.
