Het Dusty. Finally getting around to getting that rifle I got from you ready for the range. I know, it has sit virgin in the safe way too long, I am ashamed. :oB)

anyway, stripped it all the way down to clean it and found a part That I don’t know what it is for. In the receiver, under the barrel threads is this block. It screws into the receiver with only a few threads. The block is tapped thru with some thread that is different than any other threaded fastener on the rifle. Nothing attaches to this block. What was it for? I figure it had to do the military configuration, but what was it? Did the cleaning rod screw in here, or was this part of the sling mount? I figure you might know.

You are correct that cleaning rod screwed into it. Kind of like an appendix now. Neither helps nor hurts function.

This one is chambered in 12.7x44r. Think 50-70… it is danged close and shoots the same bullets. 
this one is Swedish, made by husquvarna in 1874 in a military config (full stock) and if I get understand correctly was rimfire version. It was sporterized at some point, and was converted to center fire for the civilian market. 
when I get to a range, I’ll let y’all know how it did! :)

Mine's a Remington ~ Argentine, .43 Spanish.  One of these days I'll get some proper brass.  :)
