Slaget ved Kringen
Slaget ved Kringen var en trefning i 1612 like sør for Otta i Gudbrandsdalen der et norsk oppbud av noen hundre bevæpnede bønder fra Dovre, Lesja, Vågå, Fron og Ringebu overfalt og nærmest utslettet en skotsk avdeling på 300 leiesoldater. Skottene var på gjennomfart til Sverige under det såkalte skottetoget, leietroppenes marsj for å slutte seg til de svenske soldatene i Kalmarkrigen mellom Sverige og Danmark-Norge 1611–1613.

Slaget ved Kringen er et av de mest legendariske militære slagene i Norgeshistorien. Det ble fulgt opp med en massakre i den såkalte skottelåven på Kvam, der mesteparten av de skotske fangene ble drept.

    • Jeff Tanner\'s powder dispenser

      From time to time you stumble across things you can\'t manage without. One of my things is Jeff Tanners powder dispenser. It\'s simple, cheap, and best of all: it\'s incredibly time-saving. I\'ve used mine for a couple of years now, and my old Lyman No. 55 is used less and less.

    For sale: a Beaumont Vitali rifle

    For sale: A Dutch Beaumont rifle made by P. Stevens in Maastricht The Netherlands. It was made in 1874 as a single shot rifle and transformed to a magazine rifle in 1890 for the Dutch army. It doesn't have the small cracks in the wood around the magazine (a known weak spot). All Beaumont Vitali's lack the cleaning rod unfortunately. It has good rifling and good working mechanism. The magazine and rear sight still have the "dirty" type blueing.

    I have lots of pictures, so ask for more.

    Sales price is 530 euros incl. shipping to Norway with DPD.
